With a supply chain involving second-, third-, and fourth-level suppliers, the supply chain at DISH is incredibly complex.
Join Sid Powar from DISH as he shares the story of how their supply planning process for repair parts went from manually reviewing 10,000 parts on a daily or weekly basis across 500+ spreadsheets, to now focusing on just around 100 parts on a weekly basis with Anaplan, resulting in:
- Decreased time to plan, create, and share purchase orders with vendors from five weeks down to a few days
- Increased concentration on business-defined exceptions
- Transparency and time savings for their planners
