Creating optimal inventory levels is always the goal. Having the necessary information to achieve this is another issue. Optiant, a Boston-based software provider and SAP are now offering PowerChain Connector 1.0, to help companies pinpoint correct inventory configurations that can adapt to fluctuating demand.
PowerChain Connector, downloads the inventory data from MRP and ERP solutions, analyzes supply chain designs and uploads the results into standard SAP planning and execution systems.
"Effective demand management and inventory optimization are the new benchmarks for operational excellence," said Jonathan Colehower, CEO of Optiant. "With PowerChain integrated with SAP NetWeaver, it's much easier to capitalize on unexpected changes in demand with new inventory strategies that reduce risk and improve opportunity," he added.
