Enhance replenishment and deployment execution
Execute continuous intelligent staging of inventory across distribution centres or customer locations to ensure maximum DIFOT / on-shelf availability, while minimizing inventory holding.
With ActivePivot, inventory planners can quickly simulate various inventory holding positions and analyse their impact on service levels, warehouse capacity utilization, cost-to-serve, cash flow and working capital. Maintain the ‘right-size’ inventory levels to ensure fewer out-of-stocks (OOS), write-offs for excess and obsolete inventory while maximizing DIFOT / on-shelf availability.
Optimize asset utilization
Monitor lead times, cash-to-cash cycles, inventory turns, asset utilization levels and delays in real time and ensure adherence to cost and service levels.
Maximize transportation and infrastructure asset usage, while maintaining optimal fleet, warehouse and distribution performance at the lowest possible costs.
Reduce days of inventory across the network
By combining Supply & Demand forecasts, actual orders, market and business data ActivePivot provides you with an accurate, real-time inventory picture with planned, actual and future inventory levels across all channels.
Operational teams can make accurate inventory decisions across multiple order channels and systems, thereby improving future fulfilment rates & inventory projections, and minimizing stock-outs. Let your demand planners simulate a faster delivery from a supplier in order to prevent a stock-out or conversely, a delivery delay to lower the inventory holding of a product. They can instantly review the impact on costs, capacities and service levels across each market and make the optimal decisions to achieve shorter lead times.
Improve warehouse and workforce utilization
Monitor and instantly understand the impact of events along the supply chain on warehousing capacities and workforce utilization levels.
Identify bottlenecks and opportunities to lower costs and maximize utilization and service levels and use geospatial analysis to swiftly recover from supply chain disasters like strikes, warehouse closures, and extreme weather conditions.
Allow capacity planners to simulate various alternatives to fulfill new orders using different fulfillment centers while evaluating the impact on DIFOT, delivery costs, workforce utilization, workforce cost and warehouse utilization levels.
