CHICAGO – September 19, 2007 –John Galt Solutions, the leading provider of affordable planning solutions for the consumer-driven supply chain, today announced the immediate availability of significant enhancements in two modules of its Atlas Planning Suite – the Demand Management Engine and the Capacity Planning module.
The Atlas Planning Suite is a comprehensive, easy to implement demand planning and inventory management solution designed for growing mid-market companies. Although customers using the Atlas Planning Suite span a wide range of industries, they have all benefited from the ability to increase forecast accuracy, optimize inventory levels and maximize supply chain performance.
“We’re proud of our heritage of working closely with our customers to quickly bring new capabilities to market,” said Anne Omrod, CEO of John Galt Solutions. “In fact, we’ve already gotten high marks on these enhancements from the beta program participants like Gallo Winery,” she continued.
The Demand Management engine is a proven forecasting solution that takes into account product lifecycles, events, sales trends and seasonality. The new release offers faster performance, improved scenario management, increased flexibility to allocate demand from the top-down, bottom-up or middle-out, and streamlined ERP integration. All these capabilities leverage the latest technologies available in Microsoft’s .NET architecture. When combined with John Galt’s Planning Portal and Point of Sale (POS Forecasting), supply chain planners can now reach unparalleled levels of forecast accuracy because they can easily collaborate within their enterprise and across the extended supply chain.
Companies use John Galt’s Capacity Planning module to optimize inventory levels and improve turns by balancing demand with manufacturing capacity via a closed-loop planning process. The Capacity Planning module now includes transfers that automatically reallocate resources when production equipment reaches capacity. The new release also includes online product information and batch rescheduling for even more efficient inventory planning.
