Software as a Service (SaaS) is a solution delivery model where application software and related data are centrally hosted in the cloud. It is sometimes referred to as software on-demand.
GRA offers different SaaS solutions depending on client needs and requirements. Instead of owning and maintaining Advanced Planning software in a dedicated environment, GRA can provide all infrastructure and processing as an on-demand solution. This approach provides great flexibility as the solution can flex dynamically during peak processing periods and contract as workload reduces.
Alternately, the complete range of GRA tool-sets can be offered as a solution based service where a tool can be run and output provided for input in to your ERP or to provide additional insight to complement your existing capabilities. This allows for on-going business benefits with potentially lower establishment and maintenance investment. Some examples include:
Our flexible approaches mean that a light-touch to deep-dive approach can be taken based on your capabilities, expertise and level of investment.
We invited GRA to run a workshop to educate the broader business on S&OP, help us design a next level S&OP process and map out the requirements and next steps to implementation. We have made significant progress with S&OP since the workshop, the key aspect is that it has been accepted at all levels and there is commitment to the process which was the big hurdle.
