Demand Planning

Unpredictability is a certainty in business today, but it doesn’t have to negatively impact your inventory management or bottom line.

Forecasts can and do change unexpectedly. Which is why  the Absolute Value Demand Planning solution has built in “dynamic controls.” These controls can change dynamically what should be ordered, based on current factors in the supply chain. The system continuously reviews all pertinent factors, and every morning (or upon demand), optimized suggested orders are presented for purchasing review.

The system also considers when inventory should be moved from one location to another to fill orders. Vendor minimums, the cost of shipping items, and other key data are all reviewed by the system which presents information to the user that can be viewed in detail should there ever be a question about how a recommendation was made.

Spike in sales? Lost a customer? Unexpected large order? Incorrect forecast? No worries.

The Absolute Value Demand Planning system can help you:

  • Dynamically forecast and replenish
  • Manage multiple warehouse locations by leveraging hub & spoke
  • Identify surplus and excess inventory
  • Collaborate better with customer and vendors

Yes! You absolutely can get the right inventory to the right place at the right time. Let Absolute Value’s Demand Planning solution show you how.
