Balance inventory & service while managing complex demand
RELEX helps home and living consumer brands address challenges across a complex global supply chain.
Lack of visibility into demand
Home and living consumer brands require timely visibility into continuous changes in both consumer demand and retailers’ commercial and order plans to avoid unnecessary lag and service level issues.
Supply chain volatility and disruptions
To mitigate the effect of supply chain volatility, home & living consumer brands need a way to anticipate problems before they happen, proactively plan for disruptions, and adapt quickly when unexpected issues arise.
Siloed forecasts, siloed decisions
It can be difficult and time-consuming to align decisions made by supply, sales, and finance teams, particularly if each team is using its own forecasts and data or relying on a rigid sales & operations planning (S&OP) process.
A complex global network
A global network of manufacturers and distributors brings with it a complex supply chain that requires teams to juggle long lead times with goods flows to avoid lost sales.
