A synchronized retail supply chain integrates material planning efforts across sales and production for improved forecasting accuracy. There are no "sophisticated" algorithms, only reliable ones.
Although many single-product, low-volume operations have profited by implementing the Demand Solutions system, it is ideally suited for businesses with high daily volumes, many customers, a broad offering of products, and a multi-tiered selling organization. Global competition, changing markets, and customer service pressures have steered distributors into new-market offerings. This has shifted the focus away from production, and into customer-centric principles.
