Demand Driven Distribution

Not applicable
Holding the right levels of inventory, closest to the point of demand generation is the key to deliver highest levels of Demand Fulfillment and Customer Satisfaction. However, defining the right inventory levels and being able to consistently meet that target is difficult, especially in a Multi-Echelon Distribution Network where multiple product families are procured from multiple suppliers and are stored across multiple locations. One key aspect that separates highly successful distribution networks from others is their ability to predict demand and supply at forward locations, and respond effectively by making the right allocations and transfers across the distribution network. Valizant’s Demand Driven Distribution app on Anaplan helps you achieve this capability more easily through its comprehensive design and ready to use technology.
