The Load-Balancing Gateway allows you to set-up a high-capacity, high-availability server farm. The gateway provides a single point of access through which all traffic passes. The health of any number of Vanguard servers is continually monitored so that traffic can be routed to the least busy machine. Also, you can take down servers for maintenance and the gateway will route traffic to the remaining servers.
The net effect of using the Load-Balancing Gateway is that you can easily scale-up your capacity and your network will never be impacted by single computer failures.

Automate your supply chain planning
With Vanguard Predictive Planning™, the supply chain planning process can be automated through artificial intelligence, prescriptive analytics, a robust rules engine, and extensive workflow.
Planners can make potential overrides and provide oversight for exceptions. Through a unified IBP platform, organizations can understand the end-to-end implications of any sales forecast or demand change in real-time.
“Billions [of dollars] in operating margin and trillions in market capitalization separate supply chain winners from losers,” according to AMR Research. Specifically, best-in-class planners see:
Reduction in inventory
Stronger perfect-order fulfillment (complete, accurate, and on time)
Shorter cash to cash cycle times
Fewer stock outs than competitors
