Product Overview and Demo

Background

A typical supply chain in the retail of the Consumer Goods industry thrives on the ability to distribute products to the end consumers effectively and optimally. Distribution Planning, therefore, is a key differentiator of the end to end process, providing several opportunities for enhancing the Reach & product availability, while optimizing the total cost within the supply chain.

The Buyer, at a distribution organization, needs to have the right tool at his/her fingertips to make quick decisions for the effective deployment of goods. The goal will be to honor the supplier contracts, avoid stock-outs across the supply chain, consolidate orders, maximize truckloads and reduce inventory cost.
