The IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Supply Inventory Optimization 2022 Vendor Assessment named e2open as a Leader in the report. According to the report, “E2open generates more accurate inventory levels by measuring error directly over the lead time for each product-location combination rather than approximating error such as most other solutions; e2open propagates demand and calculates error, yielding more accurate results. Other systems propagate error.” E2open supports this function across a large variety of inventory nodes, including plants, regional distribution centers, customer ship-to warehouses, vendor-managed inventory (VMI) locations, channel partners, and in-transit goods.
We believe e2open is uniquely positioned among inventory optimization vendors in leveraging field-proven machine learning (ML), the e2open supply chain platform, and the multi-enterprise supply chain network (e2net) to deliver:
• Better accuracy of inventory information through advanced calculations and artificial intelligence (AI) that incorporate supply, demand, and lead time variabilities with real-time data, instead of deferring to fixed values or ERP assumptions
• Optimization of inventory positions leveraging upstream and downstream partner inventory
• Continuous updating of inventory targets as e2open can be used once per week so that inventory targets reflect current market conditions and include new products as well as avoid the disruption of big bang updates.
The IDC MarketScape noted, “E2open has extensive experience in consumer goods, high tech, food and beverage, and automotive and heavy equipment, so manufacturing organizations in these segments, particularly that are looking for a vendor of both broad and deep supply chain planning capability, should consider e2open for their MEIO needs. The linkage to e2open's multi-enterprise network is also an important consideration.”
