Why Inventory Planner is better than spreadsheet-based inventory planning
Reliable forecasting for multiple locations
Inventory Planner cleverly predicts demand based on your historical sales, and offers different forecasting methods for both seasonal and flat-trending products. It also factors in variants like market fluctuations, festive periods and out-of-stock days for ultimate accuracy.
Faster, smarter inventory purchasing
Inventory Planner doesn’t just predict demand – it also tells you exactly when to reorder items to avoid going out-of-stock by analyzing supplier lead time and your desired stock cover period. Purchasing recommendations are available at warehouse, variant, vendor, bundle and assembly levels. You can even place purchase orders within your Replenishment Report, saving valuable time.
Release cash from overstocked inventory
Don’t let slow-moving products halt your cash flow and occupy your valuable storage space. Based on forecasted demand, Inventory Planner identifies all your overstocked items. Plus, you can access more than 200 metrics such as overstocked units, overstocked costs, revenue, retail prices and profits to determine which items should be liquidated first to release cash.
Maximize your revenue with out-of-stock products
Inventory Planner forecasts lost sales, revenue and profits for all of your items – so you’ll know exactly how much revenue you’re going to miss out on if an item is running out of stock. With this, you can prioritize the items that need to be reordered immediately to maximize profits.
Intuitive inventory reporting
Inventory Planner’s intuitive dashboard and handy reports keep you up to speed with your inventory performance, including best sellers, KPIs, periodic performance, aging analysis and more. And you can run reports by SKU, product, brand, vendor, warehouse, bundle, assembly or any other custom category – to gain the specific insights that matter to your business.
