Demand Planning

Economic uncertainty has greatly challenged both consumers and the companies that serve them to reassess their use of resources. Consumers have re-evaluated their budgets and buying habits, and they have made some significant changes. Many are cutting back on luxury items, buying less expensive alternatives, delaying purchases—or halting certain purchases altogether.

This correction, in turn, is forcing businesses to make tough decisions to remain profitable. The ability to predict and service changing consumer demand patterns, and use that information to more effectively support the demand chain, will significantly affect the corporate bottom line and customer satisfaction.

Teradata helps you expand your focus from the supply side to include the impact of consumer demand. This critical data signal is the key to recognizing downstream changes and more accurately predicting demand by store and stock-keeping unit (SKU). Improving these predictions allows organizations to increase customer service levels and sales while reducing inventory waste.

"Our product merchandising and planning needs to be tailored to local circumstances and customer wishes. Flexibility and responsiveness are the very core of HEMA’s supply chain strategy."
