Demand and capacity planning helped a leading retail company to improve accuracy in demand forecasting by 15%

Aug 2, 2019

A U.K based leading retail player wanted to reduce the percentage error in their demand forecasting approach. Due to the inconsistent nature of their existing demand and capacity planning processes, they were not able to manage their inventory stocks and ensure the easy availability of high-demand products.

Demand and capacity planning is an important method that helps companies to monitor and improve their inventory management. The growing popularity of demand and capacity planning can be attributed to its ability to simplify the logistics value chain by integrating smarter demand forecasting and predictive analytics into the process of capacity planning. With obsolete demand forecasting processes, businesses had to rely solely on historic patterns of demand to plan for production needs. But analytics-based capacity planning strategies help businesses to gain better visibility into factors affecting their supply chain and also provides actionable insights relevant to actual scenarios.

Our demand planning solutions help companies to ensure fluidity and efficiency across all touchpoints in the value chain. Request a FREE proposal to gain detailed insights into our portfolio of supply chain analytics solutions.
