Our Passion

We don't believe that Inventories and Supply Chains are a necessary evil. We know, if understood correctly, they implement strategy and are vital high-yield investments which can provide the strategic leverage needed to succeed. We continually work to expand current supply chain thinking and we absolutely love the challenge. 

About ICS

Computing supply and demand risks at SKU-level which are inherent to any stocked item combined with sophisticated forecasting models has been a game changer in inventory management. Uncovering those risks enables informed decision making and provides companies with undiscovered opportunities to achieve the desired capital and service level requirements.

Accurate Supply & Demand Forecast to achieve Service Level Goals.

 

  • Supply and Demand Forecasts at micro-level (individual SKUs at individual locations) and macro-level (balance sheet view) or user-defined in-between level.

  • Forecasts are driven by latest transactional data, automated, continuously updated and adjusted.

  • ICS auto-selects the best-fit forecasting algorithm by choosing from 8 options through the application of a multi-algorithm tournament method.

Create a foreseeable future for logistics, operations, service, sales, and finance.

Create cross-functional visibility of working capital performance and future plans​

  • By default ICS forecasts expected sales, purchases, inventory positions at all locations and resulting cash commitments 24 months into the future.

  • Forecasts can easily be enriched with market knowledge or other human input.

  • Facilitates forecasting of new product introductions, newly established or suspended network locations.

  • Stocking towards forecast as opposed  to stocking to history increases reactiveness of inventory investments to changing market conditions drastically.

 

  • Events are automatically added to the demand forecast.

  • Replenishment recommendations are auto-adjusted.

  • When plans change or events are delayed rescheduling can be done with a click and forecast and replenishment recommendations are instantly updated.

  • Event planning does not add to historical demand (transactional history), protecting against unnecessary stock build-ups for known demand.

  • Events Planning can be automated.

  • ICS can identify parts classifying for event planning.

Enrich forecasts by adding Events for known future demand.
