The Big Picture For Your Supply Chain

Blue Ridge facilitates the forecasting we need to be able to plan for the demand that we will have out of our spoke locations, while also passing that demand through our supply chain so that we can easily analyze the projected demand we’ll need to fulfill at our hub. The native integration with NetSuite made the implementation smooth and has allowed for easy updates to the integration when needed as we solidify our new day to day process moving forward.

Effortless Integration With a Structured Implementation

The integration between Blue Ridge and NetSuite was seamless, allowing us to complete the implementation in under 10 weeks as expected. Between the rapid implementation time, numerous end user training sessions, and additional resources for adoption provided to us upon go-live, we’ve been extremely satisfied with the onboarding process and are comfortable moving into full user adoption with our buying team.

Glad We Had Blue Ridge When Our Demand Skyrocketed

Blue Ridge has allowed us to react quickly to the sudden changes in demand we’ve experienced on certain product lines in the current landscape of 2020. We can easily focus our attention on the groups of items that have high demand so that we can capitalize on the increased sales of those items. The application takes away some of the day to day busy work we were previously experiencing without a demand planning tool, which has allowed us to focus our attention on fine-tuning our inventory to optimize revenue.

The most robust demand planning solution for NetSuite.

We had been looking for help with our supply chain planning for 6 months before we came across Blue Ridge. The solution, the sales team, and company are all top notch. We will use Blue Ridge to replace our Forecasting & Replenishment process in our distribution & manufacturing business. The analytics provided are above and beyond anything we have seen in a NetSuite partner and look forward to seeing how Blue Ridge can elevate our service levels, reduce our overstocks, and optimize our acquisition and carrying cost. Blue Ridge has an impressive outlook on the future and roadmap for future development. They seem to offer the most robust solution to controlling inventory that we have seen.
