Blue Ridge Sees Automating Supply Chain Planning with Price Optimization Bring Increased Efficiency

A new automation couple has surfaced: pairing supply chain planning with pricing optimization, according to Mike Mills, Director, Business Consulting at Blue Ridge. Read Mills’ feature article in Automation.com here

Mills noted, “Driving this trend is the fact that companies need earlier insights into new market opportunities, including what items consumers want, on what channel, how much they should stock, and how much they will pay for these products.” 

According to Mills, top wholesalers lack of automation keeps their company goals out of reach. Specifically, a lack of automation means poor management of slow-moving products and seasonal items. Those metrics are secondary to the automation value proposition of improving forecast accuracy. 

Companies need to evaluate current technology and measurement tools to discover where to improve and invest. When it comes to inventory, nearly half of all companies are able to offer different service levels based on the importance of items or clients. Others use tools that evaluate plans based on demand changes and reconcile sales, purchases, and other financials with budgets. Sadly, more than a quarter of companies fail to use any of these tools.
