Valogix means “value logic”. Our focus is to develop solutions that deliver measurable results – increasing your bottom line positive cash flow. The Valogix team is leading again with the development of Valogix DMRP Inventory Planner. This breakthrough technology replaces the uniform usage assumption common with other DRP and MRP modules with predictions of the actual demand. This will prevent costly stock-outs caused from the “bullwhip” effect”.
Our goal is to work in concert with our customers to help them achieve their inventory and customer goals. Our dedicated team focuses on the best way to achieve these goals based on the customer’s level of expertise. Valogix has thousands of users and partners in over 44 countries and growing.

VALOGIX® DMRP Inventory Planner for manufacturing simultaneously plans for items needed both in the manufacturing (production) process and sold separately as finished goods. This smooth-flow process is unique because it accurately plans the independent inventory based on its own parameters and demand.
Valogix adapts all aspects of inventory management into one advanced, simple-to-use software product. The automated planning tools improve your competitive advantage by keeping costs low, so you can focus on customer service. The increase in SKUs, omni-channel and high service levels are the key factors.
Wholesale Distribution has become more complex and costly. The ever-increasing number of new Items (SKUs), changing demand patterns and increasing transportation costs are taking a toll on a distributor’s bottom line. Further complexity comes from planning for multiple locations and accounting for substitutes and supersedes.
Service parts inventory management is a prime candidate for the power of advanced inventory planning solutions. With many parts to manage and a lack of powerful tools, most companies with parts inventories have too many of the wrong parts. The result is unnecessary inventory expense, while still suffering service-limiting stock-outs.
