Super smart buying decisions, to keep your business moving

Our Buying Optimization solution works with your planning systems to supercharge your sourcing strategy with artificial intelligence (AI) – helping to ensure supply and reduce costs.

CODI, Peak’s Connected Decision Intelligence system, considers demand, lead times, minimum order quantities, and sourcing constraints like price and volume escalations. CODI then recommends the optimal sourcing strategy, determining what to buy, when to buy, what quantity, and what supplier to choose.

Peak helps purchasing managers buy at the lowest price, without compromising quality and supplier reliability, in order to reduce disruption, working capital, and waste.

A world with painless purchasing

CODI augments your judgement, by combining and enriching your data with AI, to predict future demand for materials. So you know what stock to buy, from which supplier, and how much to pay, in real time.

  • Inputs

    To get you the most accurate results, CODI combines data about inventory, demand, supplier performance, capacity, logistics, financial, and customers.

  • Predictions

    Once your data is combined and enriched with AI in CODI, it's used in analysis models that create demand forecasts for materials and dynamically adapts to supply chain configurations.

  • Outputs

    CODI, taking into account your specific business objectives, recommends what to buy, how much to buy, and from which supplier.
