Forecasting, Inventory + Supply
Few activities are as important to the success of a company as sales forecasting and demand planning.
The difference between adequate and excellent sales forecasting and demand planning can make a significant difference in a company’s competitiveness and market position. Inaccuracy of sales forecast contributes to customer dissatisfaction, lost sales and increased inventory cost. Yet for most companies, excellence in these core business functions remains out of reach.
The LCA Difference
Within Asia, the inability to secure continual access to accurate operational data has traditionally undermined many business’ planning capabilities. In turn, this has resulted in sub-optimal inventory management and a resultant loss of sales or lost opportunity market penetration.
LCA has a proven capability in improving the ‘harvesting’ of operational data, then assisting our clients in the development of their analytical and planning capabilities.
The result can be a virtuous circle of improved inventory availability, increased sales and more accurate feed-back from the market. This delivers sustainable value to our clients in addressing a prerequisite for effective supply chain performance.
