Smart Supply® in daily practice

By using our extensive dynamic forecasting and replenishment method, you automatically get purchasing advice every day. It saves you the time of setting minimal and maximum stock levels. Our purchase algorithm ensures that you get the right products, in the right place, at the right time.

Technical software background

All Smart Supply® modules are developed in MS SQL in an in-house developed web portal. That means you pay no user-based fees. For our current clients, we have created interface connections with SAP AFS, SAP RTL, POS DM and an AS/400 system.
The interface technologies used range from .csv flatfiles, to XML interfaces via SAP XI, SAP PI and Seeburger. For one of our clients, we even created a successful migration to TIBCO web services.
