Forecast Collaboration

Increase your supply security through smart demand planning together with your suppliers

Synchronize demand on multiple levels

Being unable to run production because purchased parts have not been delivered – every production manager’s nightmare, especially when dealing with complex, limited goods. To avoid bottlenecks in volatile times, foresighted close coordination with your suppliers is crucial to be able to plan your own production accordingly. The more precisely suppliers know their customers’ demands, the better they can adapt to them and take measures to ensure on-time delivery.

SupplyOn’s Forecast Collaboration solution creates just this transparency – both for medium-term planning and for spontaneous orders. Alerts provide information about possible deviations or disruptions so that alternatives can be found in time. Thus, the intelligent system enables both sides to identify and eliminate looming supply bottlenecks before they have a harmful impact on business. This boosts productivity and increases delivery reliability – while reducing risks at the same time.
