It’s no secret that demand planning is a complex and often arduous process. And if you’re still manually calculating future sales, chances are that it’s even more of a pain because there’s a ceiling to the level of insights you can glean. In turn, it can hinder the S&OP process and the effectiveness of executive decision-making.
In short, software can help with the demand planning process mightily, especially one that uses machine learning algorithms and robust sets of data to calculate demand with incredible accuracy. The very best platforms also know how to translate data-driven insights into actionable recommendations across the supply chain that enable brands to optimize working capital and realize other efficiencies that drive the business forward.
