At Brookes Retail, our inventory optimisation software employs unique demand and inventory modelling technology in order to reduce stock-outs, improved inventory turns and increase both store shelf and warehouse availability.
Better planning means better sales and increased cash flow
Traditional inventory planning systems and approaches are limited by their use of approximations and untargeted “segmentations”, grouping stores and assortments into arbitrary segments and assigning the same target to all SKU-Ls in the segment. The resulting recommendations are poor and result in poor inventory and service levels.
Our inventory planning solutions can optimise very complex supply chains including multiple distributions networks (multi-echelon inventory optimisation or MEIO). By balancing inventory levels across different locations including warehouse and store inventory (optimal staging) and different Bill-of-Material (BOM) levels, our inventory planning software can automatically suggest the right “decoupling points” and adequate stock levels in any supply chain location.
The inventory planning solutions uses proprietary analytical relationships between inventory levels and service levels, providing highly reliable inventory forecasting and optimum inventory levels even for very large assortments and very slow moving, intermittent demand and “long tail” assortments. As a result, our solutions offer highly automated, powerful and sophisticated inventory optimisation for an extremely low cost and incredible ROI.
