Professional Advantage clients receive exclusive offer with Oliver Wight

Professional Advantage is pleased to announce it has expanded its collaboration with business transformation specialists, Oliver Wight. As a result, Professional Advantage clients are now eligible for an exclusive deal to receive a discount from the cost of Oliver Wight training and workshop programs.

Professional Advantage’s Jonathan Marcer comments “Oliver Wight are the knowledge leaders in respect to best practice for S&OP and Integrated Business Planning (IBP). They are the authors of Oliver Wight Class A Standard for Business Excellence, a benchmark for some of the world’s highest performing businesses. We, at Professional Advantage, deliver solutions into businesses to transform related processes around corporate performance management, managing demand, and supply, product and services portfolio management.  

"I met Stuart Harman of Oliver Wight Asia Pacific at an event two years ago. I felt an affinity with the Oliver Wight message and a strong alignment between it and PA’s technology approach and portfolio, and in particular with platforms such as BOARD. BOARD is an all-in-one decision making platform, equally suited to financial forecasting as it is a demand plan.“

Marcer goes on: “The Oliver Wight standards and methodologies are relevant to businesses of all sizes and across all verticals. In Professional Advantage experience, it is always best to deliver a strong outcome in a business that has a vision of the bigger picture, where the technology supports good processes. This makes the outcome sustainable and accelerates the ROI. If customers take on IBP or improved S&OP, or find value in the basic principles, then our solutions and the technology can reap even greater value.”

As the first part in a series focusing on Integrated Business Planning, Stuart Harman, partner at Oliver White Asia Pacific, introduces IBP in the following video:


“We are delighted to be working more closely with the team at Professional Advantage,” said Harman. “The videos and workshops offer the perfect first step for businesses looking to improve their processes in order to be a success in today’s ever-changing environment. We look forward to developing our relationship with Professional Advantage and offering companies the best solutions to deliver real sustainable business results.”
