The future of supply chain planning, available today

Accurately predict
demand

Use machine learning to derive the best forecast with the least amount of user effort.

Optimize vendor-requested
buys

Be able to say “yes” when key vendors ask you to take on extra inventory.

Make quick forward-buy
comparisons

Consider the total cost of inventory on a time-phased basis in your purchasing plans, making it easier to decide whether to bring goods in early at a lower price or later at a higher price.

and vendor clustering

Consider future demand, buying costs and business goals such as profit maximization or cost minimization in your sourcing plans.

inventory

product introductions

Leverage algorithmic optimization to plan products that have non-existent, lumpy or intermittent demand histories.

Employ extensive
assessment criteria

Get an enterprise-wide approach for demand planning, inventory optimization and replenishment.

Use multiple units of
measure for analysis

Synchronize sourcing
and supply
