DEMAND PLANNING

Forecasting & DRP

Whether or not your ERP system is fully integrated makes a critical difference in the way you manage demand planning tasks. While many companies still rely on manual processes, cumbersome spreadsheets, and third-party add-on tools, best-in-class consumer goods companies are using the automated tools found in Apprise® ERP for more accurate results, produced in a fraction of the time.

Apprise Distribution Resource Planning (DRP) tools integrate point-of-sale (POS) data, customer forecasts, historical sales trends, seasonality, supplier lead times, and more to help you optimise purchasing decisions. And since you deal with long import lead times, Apprise ERP includes time-phased tools to help improve forecasting accuracy even further.

With Apprise ERP, it's easier for consumer goods companies to minimise inventory carrying costs and reduce stock-out situations. Full visibility throughout the supply chain helps global companies respond quickly to changing market conditions to keep retailer satisfaction rates and profitability high. We're confident you'll find that Apprise ERP has the right mix of industry specific functionality and best practice tools to help you run a better business.

Purchasing tools

Apprise ERP is built with the functionality you need to make your purchasing activities more streamlined, accurate and cost effective. As a fully integrated solution, Apprise ERP helps improve collaboration with your global team and your suppliers. Our flexible, rule-based environment provides automatic alerts on inventory status and reorder levels. And our demand planning tools account for lead times, supplier performance, on-hand and on-order status, sales performance, and other metrics to help you make better purchasing decisions. We also make it easier to align inventory receipt with customer demands, so you can maximise order fill rates and improve customer satisfaction.

Flexibility within Apprise ERP allows you to rename fields and personalise workflows with little effort. Enter, edit, copy and void purchase orders, while putting container and shipment information at your global team's fingertips. Easy-to-use functionality helps you view enquiries and generate reports so you can stay informed on purchase order data. With Apprise ERP, you get comprehensive functionality for all your purchasing tasks. While our industry specific functionality enables you to maintain detailed information on each of your suppliers, products and warehouses, for a real-time view of your business and relationships.

Product Lifecycle Management

Integrated PLM functionality is critical for consumer goods companies. Apprise® PLM is designed to help consumer goods manufacturers, designers, and brand managers maintain control over a product's entire lifecycle from concept through sale to your retailer customers.

The Apprise PLM tool is integrated with our ERP solution to give you 360° visibility on product development, production and sales performance. With Apprise ERP, you can track product specs, costs, suppliers, workflows, deadlines, sales, and more. We eliminate the need for third-party PLM systems. And full integration within Apprise ERP means you won't have to manually move product specs and designs from one system to another.

Apprise PLM helps you improve collaboration and streamline workflows. Our solution enables you to manage workflows for individual users and teams, to ensure product development stays on task and on time. Configurable workflows within Apprise ERP enable you to choose task functions, priority level, and team assignment. And workflows can be set up based on your unique rules for suppliers, products, and factories. Alerts within Apprise ERP notify users whenever a task is created, updated, or requires attention, to ensure projects are completed on time.

Our integrated PLM contains product development tracking to give you detailed insight into how products change over time. Apprise ERP enables you to archive and easily retrieve design specs. And our easy-to-use graphical user interface and intuitive drag-and-drop tools make assigning teams, rules, workflows and more, as effortless as possible.

Apprise ERP is built with industry specific demand planning tools to minimise costs through efficient purchasing.
