What Customers Are Saying

For just one pant style with four different color options, we might be managing a combined SKU count of more than 100. Manually, the best we could do is plan at the color and style level using only total manufacturing capacities. With Master Planning, we have the capability to plan at the style, color, size and dimension level – something that was not possible to do manually. The solution really changed the supply planning process within our legacy businesses from a planning activity to truly managing the critical issues.
