Detect Consumer Demands in Real-Time, Scale Up Faster, and Minimize Obsolete Stock

Developed through decades of experience, Infor Demand Planning offers unparalleled power to build a fast, social, highly collaborative demand planning platform. It’s intuitive and easy-to-use, so no training is required. The platform’s pinpoint accuracy results in lower inventory investments, improved customer service, and an optimized use of resources, resulting in lower supply chain costs and better customer service levels.

Automatic Variance Detection

Infor Demand Planning automatically detects variances in consumer demand patterns for every inventory, both expected (seasonality) and unexpected, so you can automatically scale up or down and adjust in real-time. This helps organizations forecast the demand of an item with confidence based on history and future probability, regardless of whether or not it exhibits a consistent demand pattern, a standard seasonal pattern, or a sporadic non-standard demand pattern.

Unmatched Forecast Accuracy

Infor Demand Planning improves forecast accuracy by identifying and compensating effects of non-recurring events, such as promotions, supply chain disruptions (pandemic), and other unique conditions (weather events). It also incorporates new product introduction information to fine-tune forecasts even more. As a result, obsolete stock is minimized and organizations are less likely to replenish items that they’re unlikely to need leading to higher service levels at a lower cost and with less effort.

Enterprise-wide Supply Chain Collaboration

Infor Demand Planning is further enhanced with Infor Ming.le®—a social collaboration platform enabling businesses to gain wide-reaching collaboration capabilities that span forecasting accuracy and variance detections. The platform allows for simple and effective communication with everyone across the supply chain with a single point for reviewing tasks, workflows, and events and easily traceable conversations and documents. This increases productivity, improves visibility across the organization, and allows stakeholders to react to real-time changes that could affect the forecast.
