SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. - Nov. 12, 2020 - PRLog -- Valogix LLC, a global provider of advanced, cloud-based inventory planning and optimization solutions, announced today that the Sunset Healthcare Solutions, a long time Valogix customer, has achieved dramatic results.
The VALOGIX Inventory Planner enables companies to reduce costs, increase productivity and provide a very quick and significant return on investment (ROI). Seamlessly integrated with SAP Business One, Valogix automatically provides inventory replenishment orders, transfers, work orders and interacts directly with SAP for automated processing.
"After 6 years of over 20% annual growth we grew the business by 85% in 2017 and 43% in 2018 and I will say it would not have happened if we did not have Valogix. Valogix was a part of that success story." Brad Sherman, CFO/COO Sunset Healthcare Solutions
Sunset Shines with Growth and Customer Satisfaction
Bringing on new large accounts creates significant inventory planning challenges, especially when items have lead times of 90 to 120 days or more. For Sunset these customers create what Sherman refers to as "stair-step growth." He notes that "Valogix gives us the ability to manually forecast as well as annually adjust history which we've continued to refine. This enables us to take advantage of the enhanced view of history and forecast to monitor and plan for the stair-step growth."
Optimized Planning Provides Long-Term Benefits
By combining powerful forecasting functionality with optimized reorder points based on a user defined target service level, Valogix has provided Sunset with the ability to increase fill rates while simultaneously reducing the weeks of on-hand inventory.
According to Sherman, "It's a lot of work, and it's not simple to do. There are complications that come with automation, and companies growing and changing, making sure that your automations are working and monitoring them, getting data validations and getting exception reports out of that. We've had growing pains along those lines, but we are getting pretty darned sophisticated with SAP Business One. We do a pretty good job of enhancing what it can do and enhancing it ourselves where we can."
According to, Brad Sherman, CFO/COO Sunset Healthcare Solutions, "Valogix enables you to manage spikes in demand and determine what inventory you need to carry to maintain a service level. We have had a long run where we have been able to achieve service levels between 95% to 98%".
