Slim4, industrial leading solution

Slim4 is the industry-leading solution for service-level driven forecasting and inventory management. Using a variety of tried and tested statistical methods and techniques, Slim4, analyses up to two years of demand history to develop a robust demand forecast for up to 95% of the assortment. Based on Management by Exception principles, Slim4 notifies users of any exceptional demand patterns. Thus enabling the planning team to focus their time and attention where it is required most.

With the support of a robust forecast, Slim4 takes into account a range of factors, including the minimum order quantity and the desired service level to determine the optimal safety stock and order level. Thus enabling planning teams to make purchase orders with confidence.

With a clear insight into anticipated demand, supply chain teams are better positioned to make inventory management decisions. As a result, our 833 customers typically see inventory levels and supply chain costs reduce while customer service levels increase.

Guaranteed: ROI achieved in just 1 year

We only offer our Slim4 software to companies when we are positive that the return on investment will be achieved within one year. That means that, unless if we can prove it, we will not sell Slim4. Focusing on reducing inventory levels, improving customer service, and increasing turnover, amongst others, our goal is always to demonstrate where improvement can be and highlight how real supply chain improvement can be achieved.
