Valogix MultiLink - SAP® Business One Add-onPredictive Inventory Planning and Optimization
VALOGIX® MultiLink Inventory Planner manages an unlimited number of items and locations in a single database. Users have instant visibility to the Master warehouse, to field stock, and everything in between. The proprietary planning engine efficiently plans for each item\location combination based on its unique characteristics. For example, a regional warehouse replenishes lower level and field locations; therefore, it is both a supplier and warehouse location. This allows VALOGIX MultiLink to handle different lead times, costs, and other variables for more precise planning.
MultiLink gives you instant information on every item in your inventory. Active, Excess and Inactive items are automatically segmented for high visibility and ease of planning and managing. This information is archived in MultiLink so you can track progress from one year to the next.
VALOGIX MultiLink forecasts future demand, creates a balanced optimized inventory, and creates new purchase orders and transfers automatically. MultiLink gives employees more time to focus on ways to improve their business like satisfying customers and vendor relations. And there is the added benefit of improving positive cash flow quickly, and with less time and effort.
