Allocation and Order Promising
The powerful algorithms in e2open Allocation and Order Promising find the best use of supply to satisfy demand priorities according to commitments made to customer forecasts, allocations to strategic markets and customers, and previously made promises.
Customers require shorter lead times and have more options than ever
With today’s complex supply chains, order promising is a constant challenge. Unanticipated new orders and supply chain disruptions can interfere with previous promises at any moment. When this occurs, the allocation of on-hand inventory and incoming supply to meet customer demands must be reevaluated—a time-consuming and labor-intensive process. If companies can’t adjust quickly enough, customers become dissatisfied, and their brands gain a reputation for unreliability.
