Its powerful service-driven demand modeling, inventory optimization, and replenishment planning/master planning help manufacturers, distributors and retailers achieve high customer service levels/in-stock fill rates while minimizing inventory.

According to IDC’s website, “Supply chain planning has become both central and critical to the success of the thinking, digitally enabled supply chain, and inventory optimization specifically is a key component of supply chain planning overall. Growing complexity in the supply chain has made inventory planning more challenging, both as a consequence of often larger demand forecast error and a lack of full visibility into supply issues and constraints. IDC would view a competent IO application as important to the success of the broader supply chain,” says Simon Ellis, global VP for IDC Manufacturing Insights’ Supply Chain Strategies Practice.

“ToolsGroup is proud to be recognized by IDC as a leader in inventory optimization,” said David Barton, ToolsGroup’s general manager of North America. “Our fundamentally different approach helps companies decode demand volatility so they can achieve aggressive service level targets with minimal inventory.
