Integrating with Salesforce
DemandCaster/Plex SCP S&OP add-on has a new event planning solution and will later add IHS forecast integration to advanced planning. Events can be many things including future potential sales opportunities and customers want to easily understand and plan for the impact these opportunities have on revenue, margin, capacity, and materials. The integration to Salesforce is executed via a third party iPaaS solution to eliminate the need to double enter opportunities in two separate system.
There is an additional subscription and implementation cost to integrate DemandCaster to Salesforce, so please contact customer service or your sales rep for more information.
