Efficiency is everything. Make decisions that reduce costs and maximize inventory availability
No one could have seen that coming
We get it. Uncertainty is the enemy of efficient logistics. Fluctuations in demand, network capacity limits and difficult data are just some of the headwinds you hit in logistics. Decision Intelligence helps you hit your targets instead.
You can’t predict the future
The Deployment Planning application gets you one step closer. It combines your order, inventory, location, stock data and production plan using AI. It makes actionable recommendations on inventory management that cut costs and maximize availability.
Balance cost, experience and sustainability
Deployment Planning recommendations frees up your resources, meaning you can invest in what matters most. Reduce the cost of holding and transporting inventory to distribution centers, while meeting on-time and in-full (OTIF) and service level agreements (SLAs).
