Forecasting Services

Forecasting and Demand Planning is an essential part of business planning and involves a wide range of functional areas such as marketing & sales, finance, operations & 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 supply chain planning such as Inventory Management, Distribution and Production Planning and Sales & 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.

Many business owners struggle to accurately keep track of their inventory. Many books have been written and applications have been developed to help handle inventory issues.

The importance of good Inventory Management can’t be stressed enough. Wrong inventory decisions lead to an increase in Working Capital, to potential Service issues towards the customers and higher operational costs, be it expediting costs, storage costs, set up costs or even efficiency losses.  We offer a detailed analysis of all your inventory parameters to make sure your supply chain plans are running with the right information as ERP is too static for this.
