I Simplify Demand Planning.

I Give Straight Answers

Growth in Product Lines. Product portfolios continue to creep as businesses constantly add new variants.

Promotions Drive Volatility. Digital advertising enables nearly limitless types of campaigns, but creates unforeseen spikes in demand.

Result: Supply Chain Overwhelmed. Through all this, dead inventories keep increasing, yet orders remain unfilled. No one understands why the supply chain cannot seem to keep up.

Accurate Forecasts Yield Savings

My Return on Investment

Did you know it costs an average of $20 per Year to maintain $100 of product?

Companies Scrap nearly 4% of their products each year due to expired and obsolete productsFor a company with $100 million in revenue and 50% gross margin, product waste would represent an annual expense of $2 million.

Warehouse costs are especially expensive, and it costs you about $2 each time an employee touches a pallet of goods. It costs even more when your supply chain transports goods between locations.

Effective demand planning allows companies to better predict demand, allowing them to align their production with product demand.

Even Modest Improvements in forecasting accuracy allows you to Reduce Inventory, reducing warehouse costs and scrapped stock. 

By bringing Visibility to your demand planning, it is feasible that I can help you improve your forecasting accuracy by at least 10%.

With an accurate demand plan, companies can better predict future demand, resulting in lower utilization of warehouse space.

  • Reduce Warehouse Costs
  • Reduce Scrap
  • Less Labor Wasted on Moving Products Around
