As we all know, planning is everything. Companies are dependent on reliable figures, from purchasing through to sales. Used as a solid foundation for the company-wide planning of relevant resources, sales planning is an important tool in your ERP system for managing manufacturing companies—particularly those operating across several locations.
Sales planning enables easy forecasting of future utilization for any desired time or time frame. This makes it easy to identify material or capacity bottlenecks and to resolve problems before they become critical.
