Buy More Economically and Improve Customer Fill Rates in all Locations
The challenges involved in synchronizing all your incoming and outgoing inventory grows exponentially when there are multiple warehouse locations involved. The key is to use a system that allows you to see and manage inventory in each location and across all locations at the same time.
With the Absolute Value Demand Planning system buyers are presented with the availability of surplus quantities by warehouse, and can choose to transfer all, part, or none of the quantity to balance their inventory across the supply chain.
Each warehouse or location can function as a hub or a spoke by item. This allows factors such as proximity to customers, shipping costs, and best vendor values to all to be considered when determining a hub or spoke location for items. It also provides maximum flexibility to optimize your purchasing and best handle customer fill rates.
