Distributors regularly introduce new products, deploy promotions and open new outlets in varying formats, when it is not faced with erratic sales... And trade has never been more volatile, uncertain and complex.
iaxxTM has a high-performance forecasting engine, the result of years of R&D, optimised with the help of our users, and capable of processing tens of millions of SKUs daily and effortlessly. Nevertheless, this forecasting represents a small part of the decision.
On all of our databases, we have measured that 7 out of 10 orders are the result of external constraints: packaging, minimum order, merchandising setup, quantitative scale, etc.
iaxxTM has all the countermeasures to allow the user to quickly process and implement this complexity: daily calculations at the finest item-site level, dynamic security stocks to cover erratic sales, qualified alerts...
A provocative piece of advice: what if we converted part of the time spent on forecasting into a qualification of these external constraints with high impact!
