“We carried high levels of inventory to protect our customers from the instability in our industry. Even with the difficult economy, or perhaps because of it, we committed to Valogix on the spot because of the identifiable financial results through inventory reductions. From what we’ve seen in just three months, we expect Valogix to pay dividends long before the end of the current economic downturn.”
Walter Jann, Executive VP
The enhanced MRP planning is very important to us. Valogix Planner gives us automatic forecasting based on order history and seasonal fluctuations - which is a big aspect of our business. This prevents over and under stocking for each warehouse, and increases sales and customer satisfaction.

Valogix Exclusive Forward Aging
A forward look at the on-hand inventory position for either a 3, 6, 9 or 12 month period. It identifies three levels of inventory status based on the expected forecasted demand.
Inventory Flow Matrix
Day-by-day table of demands and replenishments for an item/location shown by either week or month. It also includes Available to Promise quantities.
Valogix Exclusive Investment Analysis
A rationalization and optimization of the on-hand and on-order inventory pinpoints where there is too much invested and as important, where there is too little invested.
A proprietary forecasting engine that automatically computes a forecast for an item. The forecast methods include algorithms proven over several years of use on many different types of data. The most difficult data to predict are slow moving, random demand and seasonal type inventory items. Valogix has built special algorithms for these cases. The presence and degree of seasonal and trend components is detected and applied in the various forecast models. The forecast can be run for 12, 24 or 36 months.
Automated Replenishment Planning
The automatic system process of identifying items that are or will be in short supply to meet demand on a scheduled basis. It produces a list of Items that have reached a review date and have positive Quantity Needed (negative Net Quantity). It includes the ability to Buy, Make or Transfer items as appropriate. In combination with alerts, scheduled replenishments elevate a planner’s productivity to new levels.
