Unsurprisingly, today’s supply chain faces numerous issues, including sustainability, technology, global economic and political instability, talent management, and supply chain resilience. Advanced forecasting algorithms and predictive analytics are used in supply chain management to help organizations of all sizes make better decisions by providing insights into what’s going on in their business at any given moment and predicting future trends. These solutions benefit supply chain management companies by boosting supply chain analytics, generating better forecasts for demand, optimizing inventory levels, and reducing costs by reducing waste.
Headquartered in Ra’anana, Israel, Intelichain Labs is a fast-growing global supply chain startup providing a cloud-based solution of a leading-practice Sales & Operations Planning (S&OP) focusing on people, process & technology. The company’s advanced forecasting algorithms and predictive analytics leverage historical data, market insights, and machine learning techniques to provide precise forecasts, helping clients confidently navigate uncertain demand scenarios.
Under the leadership of Roei Aviram, CEO & Co-Founder of Intelichain, the company has successfully implemented a data-driven approach that combines industry best practices, advanced algorithms, and predictive analytics. By prioritizing simplicity and intuitive solutions, Roei fosters efficient decision-making, enhances user experience, and promotes quick
adoption of Intelichain’s solutions within the supply chain industry. Roei firmly believes that planning should be fun, fast, and accurate, and this philosophy is reflected in the design of Intelichain’s product.
Addressing Growing Challenges with Brilliant Solutions
Reaching an unconstrained-unbiased “consensus demand forecast” between different departments in the organization and the statistical forecast is vital for effective supply chain planning but is often managed poorly. Intelichain’s solutions facilitate seamless collaboration and alignment across departments, ensuring a unified understanding of demand and driving better organizational decision-making. Their solution saves valuable time by eliminating the need for countless hours spent on never-ending meetings to reach a consensus and agree on the forecast numbers.
Segmenting demand patterns and building optimal inventory plans for each segment is critical to achieving better service levels and cost-effectiveness. Intelichain solutions utilize advanced segmentation techniques, allowing clients to tailor their inventory plans to specific demand patterns using the 9-Box Analysis. This ensures that the right products are available at the right time, reducing stockouts, improving customer satisfaction, and optimizing costs.
Data integrity is crucial for effective decision-making, but data is only sometimes clean and well-arranged. This is why Intelichain has built an AI-driven data verification. This solution tackles the complexities of managing data issues, such as demand outliers, missing values, and duplicates. Through intelligent data cleansing and integration processes, they ensure the availability of clean, reliable data, enabling accurate analysis and decision support. Once data is cleansed, Intelichain processes the data in its ML engine and generates Intelichain customers’ accurate forecasts at any level (single product to a category and market), together with an inventory optimization tool.
By addressing these challenges comprehensively, Intelichain solutions enable businesses to enhance their demand planning capabilities, improve forecast accuracy, optimize inventory management, and achieve better overall supply chain performance.
