To meet omnichannel customer service requirements and sales targets, you need to be able to consistently offer the right product, at the right place and channel, at the right time and price. Optimal demand planning and forecasting tools are critical to this process. However, understanding demand variability and what shapes demand is critical prior to selecting a demand planning and forecasting solution.
enVista’s experienced retail practice helps companies review historical demand patterns by SKU, seasonality, promotion, physical location and channel. The resulting demand plan forecasts the correct amount of stock required to meet fluctuating demand, taking into consideration key variables such as safety stock, service levels and dynamically changing promotions or stocking strategies.
Proper inventory management will allow you to keep the correct amount of stock on hand and reduce the minimum amount of stock required to maintain optimal service levels for your customers.
enVista’s inventory optimization process involves accurately allocating your inventory across your supply chain channels, evaluating your supply and demand volatility to determine optimal safety stock levels to reduce overall inventory levels, reduce capital holding costs and maintain or improve service levels to your customer.

As transportation and logistics professionals look to manage an increasingly complex environment with ample shipping options and fluctuating rates, there is a great need for a single system to quickly determine the most appropriate method of shipping, no matter what is being shipped or where it is going. The ability to input shipment details and to have actual rates returned across modes, carriers and agreements is critical for both large and small companies looking for an edge in a capacity-strained market.
