What you’ll need to know about Allocation apps.
Matching available inventory to customer orders.
Allocation constantly balances high-priority orders against the need to minimise both stockouts and excess inventory.
Machine learning enables more efficient allocation.
Here’s why: Machine learning is able to handle the volume of data and increasing complexity involved in allocation. It is able to analyse huge amounts of data from multiple sources—including historical sales data, customer demand patterns and inventory levels—then identify trends and make more accurate predictions.
Using some—or all—of these factors, allocators can reduce both overstocks and stockouts:
- Accurate demand forecasting—for a clear understanding of customer demand patterns.
- Real-time visibility—to see up-to-date information about inventory levels.
- Flexibility—to respond to changes in demand and adjust allocation accordingly.
- Integration—with other systems, such as order management, shipping and accounting.
- Automation—for routine tasks, such as inventory tracking and reporting.
- Scalable systems—to handle fluctuating volumes of data.
- Data security—to protect sensitive business data, such as inventory levels and customer information.
Manhattan Active Inventory was engineered specifically for short-lifecycle planning.
It’s cloud-native, evergreen, extensible—and never needs upgrading.
