Our SCM SIG covers the entire supply chain: IBP (integrated business planning); forecasting; inventory optimisation; planning and scheduling; sales order processing; procurement; receipt of goods from suppliers; manufacturing; sub-contracting; warehousing and storage and despatches to customers - anything SAP related to these business processes.

We understand how important networking at our face to face events is to you and since we can't get together in person right now, the session will start 30 minutes before the SIG commences so you can grab a coffee and have a virtual catch up with the SIG chairs and other attendees.

Rob Shropshire from Neptune Software and Mike Nicklin from The Config Team will be running a session on how to Innovate To Stay Ahead – Supply Chain Mobility

Neptune Software provide a low-code, rapid application development platform designed for SAP. They enable your business to rapidly develop applications to solve business issues quickly across your entire SAP landscape and beyond.
