Forecast and Optimize Your Inventory Painlessly

Say so long to knee-jerk reactions and unreliable spreadsheets. Say hello to rich visualizations and intuitive features that work the way you expect. DemandCaster supply chain planning software empowers you to proactively optimize your inventory with less effort while delivering exceptional customer experiences that fuel business growth.

  • Move beyond spreadsheets to forecast sales of inventory holistically, based on an item’s sales history, confirmed orders, and more.
  • Balance demand forecasts to a supply plan that is based on your company’s service level objectives, realistic supplier lead times, what-if simulations, and a multitude of safety stock models.
  • Perform multi-echelon inventory optimization (MEIO) using system-selected “best fit” or user-specified statistical forecasts.
  • Accurately forecast time-phased inventory needs across your organization and automate the timing and quantity for its replenishment.
  • Leverage automated purchase, make, and transfer recommendations to stay ahead of your inventory demands; automatically push orders to your ERP for execution
  • Run advanced analytics to calculate economic order quantities, lead times, and stocking levels.
  • Quickly prioritize items by revenue, margin, costs, or units using Pareto ordering (ABC analysis), and automated classification and segmentation.
  • Leverage built-in support for new product forecasting to plan by analogy and/or suppression.

Reporting & Analytics

Speed smarter decisions with customizable reports and leverage advanced, forward-looking analytics (e.g., inventory classification and segmentation, lead time, stocking, etc.) to create one-to-one relationships between your customers and your supply chain. Included in all DemandCaster software.
