What We Do
Rather than merely forecasting future sales levels and shipping enough quantities to meet the forecasts, Pan-Pro's VMI software watches the entire supply chain, and automatically adjusts to fluctuations and changes on a daily basis. Pan-Pro's VMI software creates a dynamic, automated supply chain. Through its closed loop processing and integrated performance monitoring, the system continuously improves its performance and effectiveness.
Pan-Pro's VMI software accomplishes this by first calculating the optimal replenishment path for every item at every location. The software then continuously evaluates each supply chain's performance and makes extensive statistical calculations on every item for every location every day. These calculations take into account issues such as current inventory on hand, inventory in transit, cycle times, historical sales patterns, and known upcoming changes to sales levels. The software then evaluates the difference between the optimal path and the current real-world situation. The software finally creates an order that brings the supply chain back in line with the optimal path, ensuring that there will be sufficient stock on hand to meet targeted service levels at the lowest possible cost.
While the concept of
automated replenishment has been discussed for years, great strides
continue to be made. Pan-Pro's patented Service Level Manager and
patent-pending Performance Analyzer are far more highly advanced
technologies than the market has seen before. And the depth and
quality of Pan-Pro's team ensures that Pan-Pro's client will remain
on the leading edge of supply chain performance for years to
