Demand Planning Services
Forecasting and Demand Planning is an essential part of business planning and involves a wide range of functional areas such as marketing and sales, finance, operations and logistics. Statistical forecasts provide a first step towards a reliable prediction of what the future will bring, by identifying trends, patterns, and business drivers within the historic data. Using a structured approach, statistical forecasting techniques add value by increasing efficiency, reducing resources, increasing transparency, and increasing forecast accuracy. Forecast is also the input for the other supply chain planning such as Inventory Management, Distribution and Production Planning and Sales and Operations Planning.

Inventory Management Services
Inventory Management involves a deep understanding and supervision of all assets and stock items within a business. Through a well maintained process of stock control, quality control and cycle counting, business owners are able to accurately gauge the inventory needs of both their business and their customers, in a perfect world.
Many business owners struggle to accurately keep track of their inventory, which is why so many books have been written on the subject, and applications have been developed, to help handle inventory issues.
