Focus On Profitability

Successfully manage distribution to optimize inventory levels.

Buy. Hold. Sell. These three words sum up a wholesale distributor’s work. But complex demand patterns and novel ways to shop, return and receive goods complicate inventory and replenishment decisions. While it’s impossible to know the future, it is possible to repeat the buy, hold, sell cycle with consistent profitability while maximizing service levels and improving perfect orders. Reduce safety stock levels through better real-time demand visibility and inventory management.

The Atlas Planning Platform helps distributors balance demand and supply by leveraging data on day-to-day realities like variable lead times, seasonality, erratic regional demand, changes in replenishment schedules, and market activity. With this data at their fingertips, distributors make smart and strategic buy, hold, sell decisions that pave the way to profitability.

Solve Top Supply Chain Challenges

How Atlas Planning Platform supports distributors.

The explosion of ways to support customer purchases and returns, such as on-premise shopping, click and collect at store, locker pickup, and e-commerce deliveries to homes and other locations builds complexity into inventory management and replenishment. Atlas guides distributor moves with certainty by giving deeper insight into the complex demand and replenishment world while balancing service objectives.

  • See demand variability from slow movers to fast movers and spot sporadic demand
  • Manage high frequency replenishment and changes in replenishment schedules
  • Seamlessly integrate consumer, store, and distribution planning
  • Build collaborative partnerships with suppliers and customers to gain visibility downstream through VMI and collaboration capabilities
  • Balance inventory investments with service objectives and supplier capabilities.
  • Link and orchestrate your S&OP process
  • Optimize and automate real-time adjustments

Omnichannel distribution lets customers complete purchases and receive orders from many sales channels. Customers can buy online and return in store, buy online and pick up at the store, or even have goods delivered to their business or home. Distributors must provide a seamless customer experience through every distribution channel. Atlas assesses market demand and current inventory levels to optimize inventory while maximizing service levels.

  • Optimize your plan by product, customer, channel and geography
  • Run scenarios combining volumetric and financial data to determine tradeoffs
  • Dynamically assign inventory policies based on business needs
  • Reduce inventory obsolescence and stock-outs
  • Automate policy tuning capabilities
  • Visualize information and trouble-shoot daily issues automatically

Automating the purchase order (PO) process builds supplier relationships, streamlines communications, and minimizes financial risk. Atlas Planning Platform supports different PO optimization strategies based on user-defined rules and constraints such as the option to buy, tiered pricing, and supplier contract agreements.

  • Seamless integration to order management systems
  • Set user-defined rules and constraints such as option to buy, tiered pricing, and supplier contract agreements
  • Support different PO optimization strategies

The wrong move in wholesale distribution leads to unhappy customers and lost profits. Distributors require visibility across all levels and systems to keep a constant eye on source and supply. Atlas Planning Platform offers end-to-end synchronization from the consumer to the extended value chain to develop a transparent and quick responding system that keeps goods flowing without interruption.

  • Leverage POS, weather, machines, IoT, and telemetry data through demand sensing capabilities
  • Improve real-time daily and weekly forecast accuracy
  • Run real-time scenarios to support fast decision making
