Accurate Forecasting

An overoptimistic forecast can lead to overstock and a pessimistic forecast may lead to shortages on popular items. Demand forecasting is a challenge, and, if done incorrectly, you’ll lose both revenue and profit. Aptean Apparel ERP integrates both historical sales data and sales forecast to help optimize purchasing decisions.

Reduce Inventory Levels

Excess inventory means higher carrying costs. Inventory management tools within Aptean Apparel ERP can make PO suggestions for raw materials and finished goods based on real-time, accurate stock information aligned with what is in the warehouse and what is still on order and lead times. With optimized purchases you can reduce inventory and free up cash to invest in more profitable areas of your business.

Increase Production Efficiency

When demand is accurately forecasted, production can be planned and executed efficiently without hurdles such as out of stock inventory or understaffing. Aptean Apparel ERP helps you decide optimal stock levels so you can reduce operational costs by efficiently planning production.

Make Informed and Intelligent Decisions

With customizable dashboard and reporting, you can drill down into your inventory to manage styles based on colors, sizes, features, images, pricing and costs.

Better Manage Your Inventory With Accurate Demand Forecasting

Agility is key in fashion, apparel and footwear industry, so paying close attention to what’s selling well and what is not is essential to staying ahead of the demand curve. You may need to quickly increase production on an item and reduce on another to stay competitive with market trends.

Our Inventory management functionality delivers end-to-end visibility of accurate data, allowing you to quickly make critical decisions with confidence.

When you make the right purchasing decisions, it helps you reduce inventory cost by avoiding purchase of excess or wrong materials and improve your bottom line.
