What the clients say

 “We used to spend all day, everyday creating orders by running multiple reports to avoid over and under purchasing.  Since implementing VALOGIX Planner, we create our orders in less than three hours. We have increased our productivity  by 30 hours a week and by only ordering what we need, we’ve significantly reduced our excess stock while at the same time, increasing service levels across all of our lines. ~Maurice Riley, Camlab, Ltd.


Item Master Demand History & Forecasting

Valogix-ChartThe Valogix-built algorithms include trend, seasonal, and multiplicative models like Season-Trend or Trend- Season. Forecasting ‘new’ items is simple and easy using Proxy History or Supersede History. This  enables the user to set a forecast by referencing the history of an existing item. VALOGIX Planner automatically sets optimal stocking quantities for each item at each location, creating dramatic costs savings while improving customer service levels.

Forecasting is automatic, requiring little to no user input to choosing which algorithm to use.

 

Automated Replenishment Planning

Valogix_Replenishment-Plan

VALOGIX Planner recommends optimal stocking levels for all items at every location. The system calculates the correct amount of stock needed to cover the expected demand for each item’s planning horizon. Then it recommends purchase orders, transfer orders and production orders. This makes more efficient use of critical company assets.

 

Automated replenishment planning eliminates guess work and manual effort, saving valuable time and money. The interactive replenishment reports allows you to plan for more items, order more frequently, reduce stock levels and free-up cash.

Vendor Planning

Valogix_Vendor-PlanningThe Vendor Planning feature allows you to plan replenishments by Vendor to create the most efficient purchase order. It provides quick visibility of minimum Vendor requirements includes dollar, volume, weight and quantity. You can meet Vendor Freight requirements, Lot Sizes, Purchase Unit of Measures and much more. The system automatically calculates your shortage risk for each item so you know the potential for stock-outs. Purchase orders are automatically prepared once approved.
