SAN FRANCISCO, CA, May 15, 2018 — Anaplan, the leader in Connected Planning, today announced that the company is a platinum sponsor at the Gartner Supply Chain Executive Conference, taking place May 14-17 at the JW Marriott Phoenix Desert Ridge Resort & Spa in Phoenix, Arizona. Anaplan will exhibit its supply chain solutions at booth #702 and will co-present a Connected Planning customer success story with Carter’s, Inc., the largest branded marketer in North America of apparel exclusively for babies and young children.
Anaplan and Carter’s will co-lead a session about transforming traditional supply chain planning on Thursday, May 17. The informative 45-minute session, entitled “No Crybabies Here: Building Next-Generation Planning at Carter’s & Beyond,” will be presented by Derek Davis, Vice President, Global Operations and Western Hemisphere Sourcing at Carter’s; and Eric Lange, Product Marketing Manager, Supply Chain at Anaplan.
“The Anaplan platform gives us real-time insight into our product SKUs to improve service levels while reducing days from the inventory supply chain,” said Derek Davis, Vice President, Global Operations and Western Hemisphere Sourcing at Carter’s, Inc. “Being able to look at demand and supply and the different components of supply and the status that they’re in—whether they’re in inventory, in process in the factory, or in transit—gives us visibility into all products at one time in one view, which is critical for success.”
“We’re looking forward to sharing new ideas and strategies with supply chain professionals from around the world at the Gartner Supply Chain Executive Conference,” said Vivek Soneja, Global Head, Supply Chain Management at Anaplan. “For retailers, adapting to the new omnichannel shopping experience is critical for success as the marketplace shifts, and a Connected Planning approach provides insight on what drives demand across channels.”
