DEMAND PLANNING OR SUPPLY PLANNING?

What exactly is the difference between Demand Planning and Supply Planning?

Simply put, it’s all about Customer Forecast versus Inventory Supply. How you manage the relationship between the two defines the value you can deliver to the demand chain.

That relationship’s complicated. It takes more hours than there are in a day to put together all the puzzle pieces needed to accurately predict how customers will act on your items, and then align supply to that demand. Blue Ridge makes this super-easy.

Blue Ridge is a unified demand planning solution that uses predictive analytics and intelligent demand planning algorithms to create the optimal supply plan based on the unique dynamics of every item, location, channel and supplier – every day.
