Visibility enhances resource and production management
End-to-end supply chain visibility with RELEX allows beverage consumer brands and manufacturers to efficiently manage material supplies, improve demand forecasting, and manage inventory. Synchronized planning from demand to distribution, production, and sourcing delivers the best business outcomes.
Address your biggest beverage supply chain challenges
Beverage brands must navigate fluctuating demand, maintain high service levels, and master production planning with clear visibility and control over a fully connected supply chain to maximize sales and minimize operative costs.
Understanding demand drivers
Beverage brands need visibility into changing consumer preferences, competitor promotional activities, weather, localized events, and retailers’ commercial strategies to avoid excess inventory, lost sales, and increased costs in workforce or inventory transfers.
Creating optimal and efficient production runs is complex and time-consuming. Supply or demand fluctuations can disrupt the existing production plan.
Lack of visibility impacts business outcomes
Visibility into future requirements and supply is critical to improving distributions decisions, maximizing sales, and minimizing costs.
Siloed planning across multiple teams
Siloed teams across multiple functions, with poor end-to-end visibility, data quality, and communication cannot react quickly to changing market needs.
