Blue Ridge Multi-Echelon Inventory Optimization (MEIO) precisely calculates the daily need for inventory across the supply chain network based on both customer demand and the unique configurations of your supply chain. We deliver a precise prediction of customer demand with the constraints that impact the actual ordering of goods, including: joined-order logic, store order schedules, supplier capacity, holidays, buying minimums, maximums, lead times and a host of other factors.

Take Control with Total Visibility

Blue Ridge MEIO analyzes your entire supply chain network as a single, holistic unit with one goal: Ensure great service at customer-facing locations in the most profitable way possible. This results in the most precise and cost-effective allocation of inventory across your network – reducing risk, increasing service goals, and optimizing inventory investment.

Say goodbye to siloes. Say hello to better service and profit. Most companies experience it all too often – not enough inventory in one location and too much in another. Misalignment of inventory impacts customer service and requires costly corrective actions to fix. Multiply these costs across your entire network, and there is significant opportunity to impact your bottom line and improve customer service.

Smart Automation

SCP automates the heavy lifting of your demand forecasting efforts, including identification of seasonality, new items and other demand variability across the entire mix. Powerful machine learning trends and algorithms auto-select the best forecast model for each SKU, adjust your forecast automatically, and continuously improve forecast accuracy to consider all types of demand behavior. The system classifies SKUs using multiple attributes across channels and locations – and goes deep with sophisticated sales and manual forecast analyses – with just a few keystrokes each morning. More time, and more cash available for strategic initiatives. 

Efficient Inventory Allocation

Your complex distribution channel isn’t getting any simpler. SCP enables intelligent inventory allocation and positioning when supply is constrained. Avoid lost sales and profit erosion from poorly positioned inventory. Manage cost-effective in-stock levels in all locations. Respond rapidly to changing conditions with flexible methods of allocation. SCP’s intelligent optimization pairs the optimal replenishment and forecasting strategies for each SKU. So that market change becomes a competitive differentiator, NOT a disrupter. 

Better Results, Sooner

Best of all, Blue Ridge SCP is not a lengthy custom implementation. It configures to your unique environment with time to (live) production in as little as 90 days. Unlike an ERP where supply chain planning is just an afterthought, Blue Ridge SCP is a plug-and-play platform purpose-built for the modern business needs of distributors.

Supply Chain
Synchronization

Collaboration across your extended supply chain network does a lot for your profit statement. Fewer customer disappointments, lower OpEx, even better negotiations with suppliers – because you have the right information, right at hand. Blue Ridge SCP calculates the daily need for inventory across your supply chain based on both customer demand and the unique configurations of your network up/downstream. This synchronization softens the business impact of supplier variability, lead times, cost constraints, buying schedules and more to drive rapid ROI. In fact, Blue Ridge customers have reduced full truckloads of inventory per week using SCP’s multi-echelon collaboration.. 

Optimized Replenishment

Blue Ridge SCP helps you maintain one version of truth in a precise, unified order plan. Calculate and manage supplier lead times, understand seasonality, and put inventory behind the winning SKUs. Optimize order cycles and safety stock, automatically build replenishment orders, and project inventory up to two years in advance, with the ability to adapt plans on the fly as the market dictates. 

Strategic Investments

You can also compare strategic scenarios like investment buys in SCP. Easily model, select and execute scenarios that achieve the best financial outcome. Strategically manage events, forecast promotions, review and identify demand exceptions. Predict the impact of price changes and erratic demand due to regional uniqueness, market fluctuations and large-scale weather events. Analyze the cost-of-service tradeoff of your decisions before you make them. Blue Ridge SCP provides crystal-clear visibility into strategic investments, annual spend and profit opportunities.
