If you’ve been following along on our story, you may have heard us say time and time again how important data is. Data is the backbone of making smart business decisions. Ohanafy’s demand planning feature utilizes historical data such as sales patterns, customer metrics, and inventory records to forecast production and demand.

Ohanafy circles back to your old data and uses that to predict what your demand will be. Get these reports straight to your inbox and never worry about running your own demand forecasting again.

Enhance your Efficiency

Now that you have harnessed your history and can see a clearer picture of your demand, you can streamline operations and further enhance your efficiency.
