AspenOne SCM

Good for large organizations but can be used across various industries from manufacturing to even medical. Also very Citrix publishing friendly to allow multiple users located anywhere to use AspenOne Supply Chain Management across the organization while consolidating their data in a centralized secure place. This ability to consolidate and centralize applications and data within the same facility makes migration, high availability in DR scenario easier to configure as well.

E2Open Channel Shaping

E2Open [Digital Transformation Solutions] is best used for customers/partners that do not have their own marketing automation software. It provides them a space to use already built in campaigns for use. A scenario where it may not be the best recommended tool is in a partner type scenario, such as ours. Currently, the tool does not have a fully customizable campaign for a partner to go in and build out a campaign from scratch. They can only take bits and pieces (depending on what is allowed) and make changes as they see fit.

  • Good bug fixes and quick support along with predictable update release schedule.

Cons

AspenOne SCM

  • While AspenOne Supply Chain Management generate a wealth of data and information, the ability to organize and create reports can be time consuming as well as steep learning curve.
  • While incremental updates are predictable, AspenOne major version updates can be difficult to implement with wide user impact causing more downtime than we prefer.
  • Report merge and legacy version conversion tools can be made easier to use with more GUI (graphical user interface) options and less command base as well as status progress graphic and confirmation of completion would be very helpful.

E2Open Channel Shaping

  • The templates that the tool offers are a bit archaic in their look and feel
  • The data is not always correct and can be difficult to use their existing user interface
  • Landing pages as part of their offering cannot be migrated directly to a user site, but rather their own standalone pages, which may not be the best experience for a user

Alternatives Considered

AspenOne SCM

AspenOne Supply Chain Management was a cheaper alternative to SAP HANA and while as not feature-ful and not as easy to integrate with SAP data, the interface was easy enough to configure without the need for HANA. It was also easier and quicker to deploy and implement which alleviated our business pain point. It's like an old saying the best software is the one you can use, now! Our management and supply chain team members have been happy with the product and very few complaints arise from the production usage or performance.

E2Open Channel Shaping

E2Open [Digital Transformation Solutions] was very cost effective and does provide a simple tool for us to provide our partner network. We have a vast array of partners, some of which do not have any marketing expertise. This tool makes it that much easier for a partner to take advantage of a tool that does all ends of automation for them.

Return on Investment

AspenOne SCM

  • We needed AspenOne Supply Chain Management quickly back in 2013 since our biggest pain point was tracking movement of products and ability for multiple departments and locations to access the information to complete their responsibilities within the organization. Was able to successfully implement in three quarters for go-live.
  • Since our initiation implementation our two major version upgrades did not go as smooth as we would like causing downtime of user access and the system does not have flexibility to run previous version while upgrading to new version. Upgrade path needs to improve to minimize downtime.
  • The business reported quick ROI of better than expected results and the software paid for itself in under three years which beats projection.
  • Centralized implementation makes disaster recovery (DR) configuration easier to manage.

E2Open Channel Shaping

  • The data that they organize for us, give clear sell in opportunities
  • We can spend our marketing money better on the product that is not selling as much as expected
  • We can make sure our factories produce the right products because we have insights in which products are really in demand by our consumers.
