Experience increased order fulfillment, more controlled inventory levels and greater customer satisfaction with MaxQ’s Supply Chain Planning module. It is designed to facilitate the planning and execution of all inventory, purchasing, manufacturing, and site transfer needs under a single facility. It manages sales/forecasts and multi-level dependent demand requirements from kits, BOMs or site transfers according to a time-phased basis, with easy or automatic transaction entries. Simply put, it tells you what inventory to make, buy, or transfer and when to do it.
