IBP provides a unified platform to collaborate between groups (e.g. Marketing, Sales, Finance and Supply Chain) to add business intelligence to the forecast for the most accurate forecast possible.
All of this allows you to ensure that you are reacting to changes in demand and deploying product to the right place to satisfy that demand.
