THE BOTTOM LINE

Answering inventory complexity

As customers are looking to add sophistication to their supply chain management (SCM) and planning processes, vendors are delivering capabilities that can address their increasingly complex needs. With multi-echelon inventory optimization (MEIO) at the forefront, vendors are supporting customers as they expand their use cases for planning systems to include sales and operations. Customers are realizing value from these tools in several ways: reduced inventory, improved forecasting, and better decision making all translate to millions of dollars in gained efficiency and cost savings. Vendors are facilitating customers as they move toward more integrated planning strategies, helping them double the value they realize from their solutions.
