Cloetta Sweden, a subsidiary of Cloetta, one of the leading confectionary companies within Scandinavia, The Netherlands and Italy, has recently migrated from FuturMaster 5.0 to FuturMaster 6.1. Following a training session held in Malmö, Sweden attended by the entire Scandinavian Demand Planning Team, the new upgrade will mean access to brand new FuturMaster functionalities as well as a more effective forecasting process.
The new process will boost accuracy by allowing the forecast to accurately reflect the latest sales opportunities and vulnerabilities identified by the Key Account Managers. It will also enable the Demand Planning Team to successfully capture the assumptions and commentary that lie behind the numbers directly within the demand plan in FuturMaster.
The streamlined process of FuturMaster 6.1 eliminates the need for the numerous spreadsheets and versions of the forecast and all the SKU volume data is automatically summarised and converted to provide a top-down overview of the latest forecast by Country, Customer or Product Group in KG and Value.
Bengt Ekberg, Demand Manager Scandinavia, Cloetta Sweden, commented: "With the upgrade to Futurmaster 6.1 we not only have more opportunities to improve our accuracy, but we can also handle more information in our S&OP process."
