Easily import options, view current DC availability, and assess performance across different store locations. This integration bridges the gap between your inventory and distribution center, optimizing allocation decisions.

Taking control of your data-driven decisions, Version 2.7 empowers users to choose the reference period for initial allocation. Whether aligning with past trends or anticipating future demands, this feature allows you to select the data period that best suits your allocation strategy. This improves the algorithm and ensures your allocation strategy is precise by, e.g. considering special events or trends in these periods.

4. Download Allocation Proposals for Enhanced Collaboration

Seamless collaboration just became a reality. Users can now download allocation proposals to Excel documents directly from the interface. This functionality streamlines communication and enables teams to work more effectively, ensuring everyone is on the same page regarding inventory allocation decisions.
