Tillamook improves Trade Planning, Deduction Management, and S&OP using Oracle Demantra

Inspirage announced today the successful Demantra Trade Planning, Deductions Management, and Sales & Operations Planning implementation for Tillamook TCCA. Tillamook County Creamery Association (TCCA) successfully implemented improved business processes based on these Demantra applications in May 2010. The project continued with Tillamook (TCCA) expanding its use of Oracle’s Demantra applications to include Demantra Real Time Sales & Operations Planning processes which went live in August 2010.

Tillamook County Creamery Association is a 101 year old farmer-owned and operated dairy cooperative headquartered in Tillamook OR. For the past century they have become famous for their award-winning cheeses, ice creams, and other Tillamook branded dairy products.

Harold Strunk, CEO Tillamook, had this to say about Inspirage:

“Inspirage has a strong understanding of the functionality and capability of the Demantra product. Their knowledge allowed TCCA to configure and apply the Demantra tool to fit our business processes. Inspirage helped us to define our requirements and delivered an application that fit our needs.”
