Demand Planning

Understand, anticipate, and shape demand using automation and machine learning algorithms that let you create the most accurate forecasts possible. Manage demand by engaging colleagues, customers, channels, and other stakeholders. The result: an efficient process for unifying your organization around an accurate demand plan.

Plan more accurately than ever, faster than ever

Traditional demand planning is limited

Getting accurate information from multiple data sources is an uphill battle

Getting demand right is essential for providing incredible service while minimizing costs. Yet traditional demand planning based on sales history and manually adjusted modeling parameters is both limited and inaccurate. It also leaves new data sources and science out of the equation when these could further improve accuracy and speed.

Having visibility to the supply chain gives us and our suppliers the opportunity to plan. We talk about planning its capacity, its resources, its material—and it helps with the cost as well by having all those elements tied together.
