Line Art

MonarchFx gives brands and retailers a superior, highly credible fulfillment solution by providing quality services at reasonable prices, requiring low capital investment. Partnering with PowerHouse Consulting helped MonarchFx further the goal of an improved costumer journey, helping brands and retailers.

Together, MonarchFx and Vanguard Software have configured the Distributed Inventory Flow Forecasting (DIFF) model for eCommerce. DIFF is a unique value-added technology available to interested MonarchFx sellers. DIFF is customized for individual sellers. Some features include an initial allocation of inventories (at SKU levels); ongoing demand forecasting models that are based on state-of-the-art algorithms with user inputs on promos, flash sales, new products, sales lifts, and more; and replenishment advisory schedules for sellers when SKUs reach thresholds and need to be replenished. DIFF optimizes sellers’ inventories based on flow, not traditional inventory storage practices. It also uses artificial intelligence for continuous improvement.

“I am happy to announce our partnership with Vanguard Software. This partnership enables us to provide DIFF, a new state-of-the-art supply chain planning model, to our clients,” stated Jim Tompkins, CEO of MonarchFx.

Vanguard Software manufactures market-leading supply chain planning software. “We are very high on the market opportunity that MonarchFx has in front of them and extremely proud to be part of their solution offering,” stated Neal Goffman, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer at Vanguard Software.
