Demand Planning & Forecasting
Omnics performs robust demand analysis, generates forecasts and drives consensus-based demand plans for your markets, channels, product categories and SKUs, using predictive analytics.
Demand planning and Forecasting requires not only the application of forecasting methods but capturing historical demand data, demand profiling, modeling events/promotions and manual adjustments to drive a consensus-based plan collaborating with your supply chain. Omnics software platform is built with these business requirements in mind and configurable to your current and evolving planning needs.
With Omnics, you can gain up to:

and reporting is automated to eliminate manual, error-prone and non-value add work.
Historical data is harvested and forward-looking trends provide insights for optimal decisions going forward.
Multi-enterprise visibility and automated analytics engine with scalable architecture to handle Big Data.
The goal is not to predict the future but to tell you what you need to know to take meaningful actions in the present.
