Maximize service and profits with optimized distribution
Maximizing customer service levels and profit requires a distribution plan that is optimized within the context of your overall supply chain.
Optimity uses advanced optimization techniques to create a distribution plan that is fully aligned with your supplier’s plans as well as your own demand and production plans.
- Network optimization
- Real-time visibility
- Prioritize & allocate
- Simulation & analytics
Optimize your entire distribution network
To optimize your distribution plans, a number of costs and constraints need to be taken into account. Storage, handling and transportation, as well as cost trade-offs linked to re-allocations and substitutions should all be considered.
Optimity automates this complex process and always presents the most profitable distribution proposal.
Proactive distribution management
Get complete visibility of your entire distribution network, from the highest level down to the individual shipments.
With a clear picture of future inventory movements, you gain better control of your distribution operation, and you can serve your customers better at a lower cost.
Automatic prioritization and allocation
Distribution planning often comes down to business trade-offs. Delays and product shortages inevitably mean that you have to prioritize who gets what and when.
Because Optimity optimizes the entire supply chain, these decisions will be made with the company’s overall service, cost and profit objectives in mind. The system not only automates this entire process, but also offers the perfect antidote to silo planning and the sub-optimal decision making that most companies struggle with.
Stay aligned and focused on the big picture
If there are any issues in your supply chain that impact your distribution plan, your planners are immediately alerted and can take action. The distribution plan forms an integrated part of the overall supply plan.
This means that communication and collaboration between functional areas is simplified and it becomes much easier to stay focused on the overall planning objectives.
Make better decisions with scenario planning
Create multiple “what-if” scenarios to test the impact of possible business scenarios and decisions.
Whether you’re thinking about adding a new warehouse or outsourcing logistics to a 3PL provider, you can simulate the outcome, including best and worst-case scenarios. With Optimity, planning will become a strategic tool for your business.
