Demand Planning Solution for Snack Company

With innovation baked into their snacks, our newest food and beverage client has trusted Vanguard Software for its demand planning solution. With our demand planning solution, our snack company client will be able to predict the global consumption of their products more accurately and make better-informed decisions to optimize their supply chain.

Our software uses intelligent demand forecasts to inform and optimize downstream plans so our customer sees significant financial gains and improved customer service levels. This is made possible by combining artificial intelligence, predictive and prescriptive analytics, a robust rules engine, and advanced workflows. Vanguard’s cloud-native, collaborative platform allows planners to automate data imports, apply advanced workflows, get alerts and recommend or share plans with colleagues, as well as analyze an unlimited range of scenario planning and impact reports.

Vanguard’s next-generation demand planning includes advanced support for demand sensing. Demand sensing requires software that can ingest and analyze a large volume of data: many times from multiple sources. When connected with other planning areas, demand sensing helps planners know when to increase orders based on market intelligence, sales data, warehouse information, as well as other sources in order to stay ahead of trends and avoid out of stocks.
