What makes our technology right for you?


Scenario-based planning

Scenario-based planning that lets you account for tenders, trade promotions and new product introductions in ways legacy enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems don’t.

Product expiry monitoring

Product expiry monitoring that includes country - and affiliate - specific criteria for allowable shelf life, with automated alerts so you can take action before inventory is no longer usable.

Attribute-based planning

Attribute-based planning allows you to incorporate constraints due to process and equipment changes that need to be filed globally with agencies who have widely varying approval timelines.

Lot-for-lot management

Lot-for-lot management across all levels of your supply chain by planning work orders across one or many bulk locations.

We’ve got your industry covered.
