Arkieva Enhances S&OP Collaboration with Release of Arkieva Beacon


Arkieva Beacon is a process workflow and visibility solution that connects plan creation and execution into actionable tasks, using a one-centralized interface.

WILMINGTON, DE. USA – May 13, 2020 — Arkieva, Inc., a leading designer, and provider of the Arkieva suite of Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS) software tools for manufacturing companies announced today the launch of their new S&OP centralized command system, Arkieva Beacon.

Beacon provides an easier way to manage S&OP processes by empowering supply chain and management teams with a centralized process workflow and visibility solution that connects plan creation and execution into actionable tasks. Beacon allows a planner to define a visual ‘Day/Week/Month in the life’ process and tie to various functions of Arkieva. With Arkieva Beacon, planners can deliver the S&OP plans on time and within budget.  

The addition of Arkieva Beacon to the Arkieva suite is only the beginning of our 2020 innovations. “We decided to create this application to satisfy the growing need for a better way to manage the S&OP process,” said Shankara Gurumurthy, Practice Director, Arkieva. “S&OP is a continuous process that can be overwhelming given that it entails a lot of collaboration from many distinct teams. We created Arkieva Beacon to improve your S&OP by modeling your supply chain planning processes with an interactive and easy-to-use interface for greater collaboration.” 

Arkieva Beacon was designed to serve the needs of Supply Chain Managers, Demand & Supply Planners, and Executives who are looking to ease chaotic planning seasons. Standard features include the ability to easily track the status of various planning functions across your organization through the Gantt chart feature, and quickly visualize your supply chain process with a configurable workflow that aligns with your strategic business goals. Arkieva Beacon provides users the capability to assign start dates, task duration, recurrence, and estimated completion time to each task.  

“Arkieva continues to invest aggressively in new and innovative ways to increase team collaboration to help companies accelerate their digital supply chain transformations, drive tangible business benefits and automate planning”, said Sujit Singh, chief operating officer at Arkieva.
