Demand Planning & Forecasting

Cloud Smoothie utilizes a world class statistical forecasting engine and allows you to forecast by customer, channel, region, or any other dimension. Statistical methods include exponential smoothing, ARIMA, Croston's Intermittent, and various other level, trended, and seasonal models. Cloud Smoothie supports collaboration, monetizing and forecasting in alternative measures, scenario planning and collaboration.

Inventory Planning & Optimization

Cloud Smoothie lets you “what-if” alternative supply policies for a single item, or thousands of items in one keystroke. For each scenario, you can immediately view the projected production requirements, min, max, and average inventories – in units or cost, and at any level of aggregation. As part of the simulation, you can segment products into different groups according to intermittency, forecastability, ABC (on cost or volume), and any other dimensions that are useful to your business.

It also creates complete, time-phased inventory plans. You can plan inventory movements through complex multi-tiered distribution channels, and it has fully support for formulations and bills of material (multi-level MRP). And, for improved use of production and storage capacity, Cloud Smoothie has full capabilities for finite capacity planning, strategic inventory builds and seasonal production loading.

Finite Capacity Planning & S&OP

The optional Finite Capacity planning module optimizes the assignment of production to resources and periods of time, level loading and minimizing overall cost.. The complete solution offers dashboard views for Finance, Sales, Production, Logistics and General Management to support advanced S&OP/IBP processes.

Demand Works Smoothie

We use Smoothie here at Younique and we absolutely love how flexible and versatile it is, especially in an environment like ours where our imported data comes from so many different locations. From the other planning services that we've seen, Smoothie definitely delivers the most "bang for your buck."

We use their cloud service, which is also great for the different power users that contribute to the plan and for all the view-only users that primarily use it for reports and outbound data.

Excellent Choice

The Demand Works team is an excellent choice for implementing an MRP solution that works seamlessly with your NetSuite system. Their product is capable of modeling a very advanced supply chain and enhanced our operations team's visibility to supply and demand. The features of Smoothie are as advanced as most industry leading MRP systems, and it exceeds industry leaders in terms of presenting a visual and interactive user interface. These features ultimately help free planners so they can spend their time managing exceptions rather than spending most of their time on cumbersome day to day tasks.
In addition, their implementation team is thorough and orderly, which allowed us to implement Smoothie on time and on budget. Implementing an MRP system is a daunting task, but the Demand Works team will give you confidence that the ideal solution is achievable. I would recommend Smoothie to anyone who is looking to add sophistication to their material requirements planning.

Indispensable

I can't imagine planning my company's production schedule without Smoothie. I'm able to manage 125 finished goods, comprised of 200 components, across 9 production facilities with ease.

Smoothie consistently recommends reliable safety stocks, automatically calculates production quantities, and alerts me to past due supply of finished goods and component requirements.

Customer support is top notch with excellent response times and expert recommendations from our development team.

I cannot recommend this service enough.
