Alloy announced the introduction of the Alloy for Supply Chain solution. It sets up a real-time control tower for manufacturers to efficiently respond to the latest demand and supply conditions, especially when they do not match monthly plans.
Supply chain teams are constantly firefighting. The solution not only enables them to identify issues earlier, but also proactively work together to take the right corrective actions—before service levels, out-of-stocks or inventory efficiency are impacted.
Timely insights support:
- Real-time plan adjustments. Planners assess inventory and consumption across the network to determine if and how production should change when demand changes.
- Real-time inventory management. Based on simulated Weeks of Supply, deployment teams distribute and move inventory where it’s needed to fulfill coming demand.
- Collaborative inventory management. Knowing what’s happening at the point-of-sale, account teams strategically allocate inventory and work with retailers and distributors to align orders and replenishment.
- Executive overview. Leaders manage by exception with a complete picture of network inventory health that maps their supply chain and shows where they’re hurting the most.
“These use cases come directly from our Enterprise customers. With data from their ERP, forecasts, shipments and various downstream partners harmonized and flowing into Alloy in a matter of months, they started to unlock powerful workflows that simply weren’t possible before without days of manual work,” says Roberto Carli, Chief Customer Officer and Co-Founder of Alloy. “Our product development has now made it even faster and easier for every user to see the context they need, drill down to the specifics and decide what to do.”
The announcement comes at a time when COVID-19 has put a spotlight on supply chain agility and the need for robust cloud solutions that facilitate remote collaboration. From promoting data sharing to integrating and translating between different system and partner ‘languages,’ the company is helping organizations across the supply chain better understand each other and synchronize their response to meet consumer demand.
