BearingPoint, a management and technology consulting firm, has deployed Oracle Demantra Demand Management solution to improve the strategic planning and forecasting functions at Kyocera Wireless, a manufacturer of wireless handsets, devices and embedded machine-to-machine modules.
Kyocera Wireless was looking for a solution to replace its manual process for planning and forecasting, improve accuracy, maintain a better audit trail, generate consistent enterprise-wide reports and spreadsheets, and create one source of data for forecasting and planning.
To address Kyocera’s requirements, BearingPoint deployed the Oracle Demantra Demand Management to help Kyocera better sense, shape and respond to demand. It is reported that the solution’s automated analytics can generate accurate forecasts and turn the forecasts into consensus plans without the need of advanced statistical expertise.
As part of the engagement, BearingPoint also worked with Kyocera to put in place a streamlined user interface, online forecast measurement tools and automated change tracking capabilities.
Francois Houdenhoven, managing director of BearingPoint, said: BearingPoint’s 15-year partnership with Oracle gives us an in-depth understanding of Oracle’s products and technologies, such as Oracle Demantra, enabling us to rapidly deploy solutions for our clients. We’re pleased that we were able to help Kyocera Wireless address its business challenges by leveraging our strengths in linking business strategy to operational reality, and delivering the right technology to meet their business needs.
