HIMPACT is a forecasting and purchasing solution for single to multi-warehouse distributors, as well as retail chains with or without their own warehouse. HIMPACT supports multi-echelon purchasing, Hub and Spoke, and a robust overstock transfer functionality. Our forward buying and promotional management functionalities help you manage promotional activity with a solution designed specifically for your buyers. With the information in the system, the orders are ready each morning and a typical buyer will change less than 1-2% of the suggested order quantities. HIMPACT also enables buyers to build orders to fill a truck, or split orders across multiple trucks, in a variety of ways in just seconds.
HIMPACT can be hosted on-premises or in the cloud. HIMPACT also integrates with every type of ERP from homegrown to all the big players in the market today. We do this via standard interfaces which exchange information daily or on demand. HIMPACT gets stock status, receiving, and order entry data each morning and builds suggested orders.
During the day, buyers accept these orders and they are interfaced to the ERP where they are imported as Purchase Orders. Other data may also be interfaced, such as promotional pricing and/or vendor deals or price increases, for example.
Not only does our solution tell the buyer, when to buy, how often and how much to buy, but it also offers sophisticated simulators that buyers routinely run to compare their current buying habits to the optimal.
Owners like HIMPACT because it improves their bottom line. Buyers like it because it does most of the work while they sleep. Your customers will like it because you will achieve the service goals you set. We don’t just forecast your sales demand, we also forecast your vendor lead times at the Location/SKU level.
