A more analytical and automated approach to demand planning
“We needed a more analytical and automated approach to predict what merchandise needs to be where and the ability to integrate those forecasts across our planning and execution functions. We selected SAS as the analytics platform to move our company forward. We piloted the software and were impressed with its forecast accuracy.” – Vice President of Planning, Inventory, and Pricing.
Meet customer expectations
Volatile consumer demand requires a high degree of efficiency in demand planning and forecasting. Obsolete, manual, resource-intensive methods cannot keep up with thousands or millions of products in an omnichannel selling strategy. Workflow-based ERP/SCM planning solutions rely on insufficient data sources, too few collaborators, institutional knowledge, and assumptions that miss or ignore the true drivers of demand. The result is inaccurate forecasts, lost revenue, increased costs, and disappointed customers.
Actively shape demand planning
CT Global’s demand planning solutions sense channel demand and apply advanced analytics to deliver intelligent forecasts without bias to improve S&OP strategy. An accurate demand plan reduces production delays, inventory surpluses, and strained relationships, and improves customer satisfaction and brand loyalty.
