Multi-Echelon Inventory Optimization for Accurate Recommendations across All Supply Tiers

Multi Echelon Inventory Optimization

Automatically set inventory targets for materials and finished goods at all stocking locations in your supply chain, from internal operations to supply and channel ecosystems. With minimum stock at the right service levels, you can improve service, reduce working capital, and lower costs.

Minimize your inventory and maximize your bottom line

Most companies carry more than they need

Extra inventory creates extra costs—and headaches

Many organizations set stock targets using simplistic rule-of-thumb policies, missing the opportunity to tailor inventory levels to account for demand and supply uncertainty or meet specific service goals. Applying a scattershot approach across the entire supply chain makes matters worse, resulting in an inventory excess and increased service risks.
