Innovation in supply chain management
For 20+ years I-Plan has been ahead of the curve, identifying opportunities for better, more efficient supply chain management. Explore how our R&D thinking is pushing the boundaries.
Macro AI forecasting
Giving businesses the ability to forecast using trends and data external to their operations (such as economic forecasts ) is fundamental to better enterprise level decisions. Our integrated AI algorithms offer just this capability.
Automated demand control
Bringing machine learning to the problem of short term demand sensing can significantly improve responsiveness to short term demand fluctuation, reducing sales team workload and improving customer service level.
Integrated trim optimisation
Cutting down waste in the paper and sheet manufacturing industry is key to improved profitability. Our pre-trim optimisation process helps improve production planning between different sizes of products, for increased efficiency.
