Manage by exception and focus on what matters
Sudden and unexpected changes in demand can wreak havoc in any organisation. When the success of a business hinges on being able to balance supply and demand for optimal customer service, such fluctuations need be be kept in check on a regular basis.
This is where management by exception can add significant value to demand planning. Management by exception eliminates errors or inefficiencies that can unavoidably creep into demand forecasts. This approach frees demand planners to focus on what matters without wasting time on manually monitoring inventory levels.
AI-generated alerts identify any anomalies (out of stocks/low SOH, min/max levels, order shortages etc.) so demand planners can proactively manage them before they get out of control and disrupt the business.
Avoid hidden costs of suboptimal ordering
If you are still using home-grown spreadsheets to manage your demand planning and forecasting activities, now is the time to replace them with a cloud-based AI system that provides multi-user access to a centralised dashboard.
Stop wasting time in Excel on manual activities such as generating inventory (excess stock, low stock on hand, out of stock etc.) or forecasting reports.
