Planning Solutions for Snack and Soda Company

Vanguard’s MEIO Solution balances inventories across the entire distribution network to minimize stockouts while keeping service levels high. With an MEIO solution like Vanguard’s, you can expect to see inventory reductions of 10-30%, minimization in investment balance while achieving service levels, automation in the inventory planning process, and more.

Supply chain practitioners have identified MEIO as a top priority.  An Aberdeen Group report states that companies using MEIO are twice as likely to meet the challenge of balancing cost and service levels across their networks than companies not using MEIO. We can confidently say that through this, they will continue to provide high levels of service to their customers while reducing their own costs.
