This manual demand forecasting was very time-consuming for Ergofast’s purchasing planners and resulted in inaccurate forecasts, high levels of excess inventory and unsatisfactory service levels. It was also extremely difficult to make fact-based decisions at at a strategic or operational level to stay in control of their inventory planning and replenishment.
