Demand Planning: Let your planners use the most sophisticated algorithms without having to understand their complexity. Planners can drill down to exactly the right level of a hierarchy and then focus on the areas that most urgently need their attention. Gain transparency into demand in an easy-to-use solution.
Demand Optimization: Use highly sophisticated forecasting algorithms—without dealing with their complexity—to generate forecasts automatically. Forecast for any time unit or item in one database. Easily constrain orders by shipping capacities, seasonality, material shortages, labor, and warehouse space. Stay in control by seeing demand forecasts, history, and on-hand inventory all in one screen.
Demand Sensing: Create more accurate near-future forecasts on a daily basis by using detailed short-term demand data. Evaluate big data in a structured way so that you can recognize complex patterns and demand signals—and then deploy your inventory in ways that satisfy customers.
Causal Forecasting: Use machine learning to identify patterns and automatically present decisions that could free up millions of dollars in working capital. Improve the accuracy of your forecasts by incorporating data points that are outside your company’s control. Use advanced modeling techniques to evaluate multiple inventory strategies, compare their outcomes—and then make a plan that helps you reduce inventory by 10 to 30 percent.
Lifecycle Planning: Launch products successfully—and maximize your margins from product sunsets. When you can forecast market demand from product launch to retirement, you can model and prepare for the impact of virtually any demand scenario or consumer buying pattern.
Proportional Profile Planning: Maximize the profitability of each product by using patented analytics to synchronize demand with your supply, sourcing, and production resources. Forecast even large numbers of product configurations, predicting demand at the aggregate level while working with precision at granular levels.
Price & Promotion Planning: Understand your sales lift when offering a promotion or temporary price reduction. Support your pricing strategy by aligning your inventory decisions with your marketing campaigns. Generate a price-adjusted forecast to model the impact of price changes, and then generate a promoted forecast based on the anticipated lift in sales.
