Arkieva Software Implementation Helps Major Chemical Company Manage Recession

Challenge: A significant percentage of what this major chemical company manufactures is used in the automotive industry, and as a result they found demand dropping far below what any previous forecast could have predicted.

Solution: Arkieva Demand Planner and Inventory Planner. The software enables the company to create a more accurate forecast, reduce inventory and create a data baseline to operate from.

Results: The ability to create a detailed and reliable demand plan has reduced inventory by 30 percent and saved more than $30 million. They are now able to track multiple forecasts, inputs by salespeople and segment leaders. Also, the ability to focus only on specific areas within a forecast that require attention saves significant time.  A reduction in the number of product changes on machines results in significant cost savings as well.
