Vanguard’s new sporting goods client plans to implement Vanguard Predictive Planning for use with their entire line of privately labeled apparel and accessories.
With more than 150 retail stores covering 35+ states, this national sporting goods company sells sporting gear, camping gear, travel equipment, name brand and private label clothing, and almost everything needed for recreational outdoors activities.
With Vanguard Predictive Planning, the company plans to forecast needed materials and manufacturing capacity for seasons to come.
To accomplish these goals, Vanguard will support all of the collaboration and planning with their material and manufacturing vendors. Some of these activities include:
- Managing available material/capacity
- Reserving material/capacity
- Getting confirmation from vendors on reservation
- Planning actual POs
- Tracking material liabilities
With more than 200 users from their material and manufacturing vendors in Vanguard Predictive Planning, the “supplier portal” is vital for planning and collaborating with vendors.
“This is yet another example of an industry leading client selecting Vanguard for their mission critical supply chain needs,” said Neal Goffman, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer at Vanguard Software.
With plans to expand into other parts of the business, Vanguard Predictive Planning is their chosen solution to support future growth. Learn more about what Vanguard can do for your business by requesting a demo.
