Vanguard Software Expands into FS Depot

FS Depot was looking for a way to manage inventories across a complex and global supply chain network, and to meet customer demand in a profitable way.

FS Depot supports the nation’s leading manufacturers of street sweeping & sewer cleaning vehicles; incuding, jetters, excavation trucks and Guzzler vehicles. As a part of the Federal Signal family FS Depot provides supply chain solutions for such brands as Elgin, Vactor, Jetstream, Guzzler and many more.
With an emphasis on satisfaction, customers are happy to return again and again for their after-market parts solutions for all environmental Federal Signal machinery.

FS Depot was looking for a way to manage inventories across a complex and global supply chain network, and to meet customer demand in a profitable way.  The Vanguard Predictive Planning platform won the team over with an approach that balances inventories across the entire distribution network, Multi-Echelon Inventory Optimization.  FS Depot plans to use a combination of classic demand forecasting, inventory optimization, and replenishment planning to get the job done.

Once deployed, Multi-Echelon Inventory Optimization (MEIO) will allow FS Depot to ensure they stock the right products in the right locations to meet customer demand and remain profitable.  Through improved demand forecasts and unified inventory and replenishment plans, they will right-size inventories across the network and reduce costs while maintaining service levels.
