GRA’s knowledge of the best practices in the end-to-end planning process is very impressive. With our Class A accreditation, Simplot already has an above average S&OP process embedded within the company, but GRA were able to suggest tangible improvements that will hopefully take Simplot to the next level in planning strategy and execution.
