Integrated Resource Planning

Resource planning may be a regulatory requirement, but the most successful companies are also taking advantage of its potential to strategically build customer satisfaction, address risk and resilience, and increase shareholder value.

Cadmus works with clients to get the most value from their resource plans, from starting at the basic level with cost comparisons of simple supply decisions, to the strategic level—a plan based on customer needs and resource options in the face of uncertain futures.
