Inventory Planner is pleased to announce their new partnership with LOCATE. Combine LOCATE’s ERP system with Inventory Planner’s inventory demand planning software and you have a dynamic system that forecasts demand, creates the accounting reports you want, prioritizes workflow, and leverages your profits.

Inventory Planner Advantages for LOCATE Users

  • Use inventory forecasting. Anticipate customer demand by accurately forecasting the sales velocity and identifying trends of each variant. Taking stockouts into consideration and customized forecasting methods mean improved forecasting accuracy, saved time on purchasing, and better investment of available budgets.
  • Forecast profit and dynamic reporting. Use Inventory Planner’s customizable reports to see only the statistics that matter to you. Do you want to compare sales weekly, monthly, or annually? Inventory Planner can let you do all three to forecast future sales and profit.
  • Control bundles and kits. Forecast demand for bundles and kits with Inventory Planner’s reports while easily creating POs for the necessary components. Bundle assemblies and warehouse/location transfers can be managed from Inventory Planner as well.
  • Replenish multiple warehouses. View customer demand across warehouses, retail stores, pop-ups, or any other place you stock and manage your inventory. Inventory Planner’s sales forecasting means you know which locations are over- and understocked, if you must transfer items between locations, or if you need to order from your supplier and ship to a specific location.
