DSX

Add Your Expertise to Every Demand Plan

Get the analytic sophistication you need without sacrificing ease of use. Demand Solutions DSX is an integrated suite of supply chain planning applications that run on a single database. The platform provides a real-world proven forecasting engine along with tools that make it easy to incorporate your business expertise into your demand plan. That’s why Demand Solutions DSX is the ideal platform to support your integrated business planning (IBP) or sales & operations planning (S&OP) processes.

Demand Solutions DSX also gives you total control over your deployment. You can deploy the platform in the cloud or on-premises. Either way, you and your end users will benefit from the same software with the same user interface and database. The only difference will be that rather than running on your hardware, the software as a service (SaaS) version runs on the Microsoft Azure cloud platform.

The Demand Solutions DSX supply chain planning suite includes: 

Boost the Productivity of Your Planners

With Demand Solutions DSX, your planners can see information at exactly the right level of detail — by item, customer, region, and more — simply by drilling down. This visibility saves time for your planners by letting them focus on the areas of your business that need the most attention.

Your planners can:

  • View and manage all inventory in your supply chain network.
  • Constrain orders by shipping capacities, such as container or minimum order quantity — and by seasonality, material shortages, labor, and warehouse space.
  • See demand forecasts, history, and on-hand inventory all in one screen.
  • Forecast for any time unit – weeks, months, or quarters – for any item in one database. 
  • Reap the benefits of the most sophisticated algorithms without dealing with their complexity.

Spend More Time Acting on Data

Your planners want to view, interpret, and analyze their data in an infinite number of ways. Demand Solutions DSX is built for maximum flexibility, so you can spend your time acting on data, not navigating through it. Because no two customers are the same, DSX was built on the principle that you need the flexibility to plan to each individual customer's unique requirements.

Demand Solutions DSX enables you to spend less time dumping data into spreadsheets and manipulating it to do what you want. You can customize every screen in the platform to meet even the most complex and disparate user requirements. That means your best minds can start analyzing your data and generating new insights faster than ever before.

With Demand Solutions DSX, you can unlock your greatest supply chain insights from within mountains of data. Demand Solutions’ data visualization capabilities let your people share knowledge, find answers, and make discoveries in a social, collaborative online environment.

Demand Solutions DSX helps you make more sense of your data by:

  • Creating global, public, and private workspaces with limitless options, and navigating your workspaces with Microsoft's familiar Ribbon technology.
  • Conducting what-if scenarios with sandbox technology, and seamlessly moving simulations to a production environment.
  • Letting individual planners set their own manage-by-exception rules so they can focus on items or groupings that need extra attention.
  • Using advanced filtering, segmentation, and analysis capabilities to drill down to any level of detail and focus on the most profitable opportunities.
