• ToolsGroup SO99+

    Brookes Supply Chain Solutions (aka ToolsGroup Brookes and ToolsGroup UK) is the official distributor of ToolsGroup SO99+ in the UK and Ireland.

    Many “integrated” software suites have been assembled from independently acquired products built on disjointed models. Passing data from one module to the next contributes to bullwhip effect and often introduces scalability problems. Most importantly it creates shortcomings in the ability to precisely and correctly model the demand and supply chains.

    In contrast, the ToolsGroup Service Optimizer 99+ (SO99+) platform is unique because it was designed from the beginning as a single model for an end-to-end planning process.

    At ToolsGroup, precise modelling is our forte. All of our solutions are built from the same detailed coherent model of demand and supply. The result is an end-to-end process that minimises the bullwhip effect, scales easily, and provides deep insight into demand signals, inventory behaviours and supply chain volatility. Our solution components can be implemented independently, but are completely interlocking from the ground up, creating a tightly connected, high efficiency supply chain planning platform.

    SO99+ encompasses core supply chain functions such as demand forecasting, fulfilment and replenishment. It also includes next-level functionality such as demand sensing, sales and operations planning (S&OP), multi-echelon inventory optimisation, trade promotion forecasting and new product demand modelling.

    ToolsGroup provides supply chain planning software for companies experiencing demand volatility

    For more than 20 years, ToolsGroup has partnered with companies who want to break through their supply chain and business performance barriers. Our SO99+ software supports highly intelligent decision-making, combined with ease-of-use and dramatically improved planning productivity. We are successfully deployed at more than 300 customers worldwide in more than 44 countries and we have one of the highest customer retention rates in our industry. Our experience includes manufacturers, wholesale distributors and retailers in a wide range of demand and inventory-driven industries.
