More accurate forecasts drive more accurate downstream supply chain plans that boost profitability, satisfy customers and synchronize supply chain partners.
Meet your digital supply chain agenda: synchronize activities and gain time, accuracy and efficiency. Use demand sensing to add short-term precision to long-term planning efforts. Reduce inventory costs. Eliminate obsolete inventory. Slash expediting costs.
Explore how it’s done.
Voyager Demand Sensing™
Voyager Demand Sensing
Leverage artificial intelligence and near real-time information to create an accurate short-term, sense-and-respond forecast to increase margins and synchronize inventory deployment.. Voyager Demand Sensing evaluates big data in a structured way to recognize complex patterns and identify actionable demand signals. It captures and analyzes demand signals from internal and external sources, including point of sale (POS), demand signal repositories (DSR), social media, syndicated data and weather, to identify demand trends, provide advanced warning of problems and enable fast and intelligent response.
- Improve short-term forecast accuracy and reduce latency to demand changes
- Reduce the total inventory required to meet customer service requirements
- Optimally deploy and redeploy inventory based on changes in daily demand
- Improve customer fill-rates through agile deployment
