Lower your Costs – Go from Reactive to Proactive
Maintaining a steady flow of product to your locations is critical to your business. Order Analysis delivers the daily insight into your inbound orders, customer demand, and inventory data. You can go from reactive to proactive on service issues, getting you out of “firefighting” mode. It alerts you to problems or potential problems with outstanding orders.
Order Analysis ensures a steady flow of inbound product to support your customer service, eliminating the service emergencies that consume so much time and money. Order Analysis provides actionable and fact-based insights, enhancing processes, improving financial performance and customer satisfaction.
All open purchase orders are reviewed daily, with exceptions delivered to the Buyer’s Workbench as Alerts. Buyers can proactively manage potential problems and quickly identify solutions to service and stock issues:
- Demand Spikes for Regular and Promo Items
- Long Vendor Lead Times
- Products with Secondary (Fill-in) local suppliers
- Dips in Sales require a Delay in already placed Purchase Orders
By identifying Over-Due Orders, Potential Out-of-Stocks, Dips into Safety Stock and Overstocks, Order Analysis brings forward your exceptions, giving you time to adjust delivery dates and order quantities, place fill-in orders with current or alternative suppliers, or work with logistics providers to expedite needed shipments.
Order Analysis drives better operational decisions, lowers your costs, and provides higher levels of promotional lift and customer service. It is a key part of the safety net that HIMPACT’s design provides. Order Analysis identifies the mid-course corrections you need to make, ensuring the flow of inbound products into your business.
