chain visibility

Forecast at the
SKU level

Let machine learning deduce the best forecast with the least amount of user effort.

Achieve one-number
planning

Continuously plan and re-plan even when there’s significant demand variability, seasonal volume changes, multiple units of measure and a variety of product shelf-life requirements.

Leverage integrated
business planning

Turn S&OP and strategic planning into a formal, comprehensive integrated business planning (IBP) process.

Optimize production
in multiple plants

Develop manufacturing plans that effectively meet goals such as least-cost, least-changeover, shelf life, sequencing and inventory limits.

Meet service goals
cost effectively

Use customer-specific forecasting capabilities, flexible “what-if” analysis and time-phased inventory policies to gauge the cost of serving key accounts—or adding a new customer or market.

Ensure in-stock
availability

Be more confident in product availability by synchronizing demand and supply on a daily basis.

Streamline
product launches

Consider service requirements, capacity restraints, handling costs and ordering costs.

Effectively balance
inventory

Optimally allocate inventory among multi-echelon supply chain points using demand sensing.
