A Comparison Guide:Traditional vs Next Generation Planning Systems

See How Solvoyo Leaves the Competition in the Dust!

Solvoyo’s comprehensive digital supply chain planning and optimization platform is head-and-shoulders above other platforms out there, including the best-known industry leaders. That’s because our approach and advanced mathematics blur the line between planning and execution – with the result of measurably better business results.

  • Solvoyo offers advanced forecasting, inventory optimization and fully automated transportation planning capabilities that others lack
  • We provide concurrent optimization capability – the ability to simultaneously optimize interrelated supply chain functions and create coordinated plans such as Prioritized Fulfillment and Transportation, Production and Distribution; Supply Chain Network Design and Strategic Inventory Deployment; Procurement and Inbound Transportation that even the best-of-breed software companies cannot deliver
  • In a single platform, Solvoyo allows you to make strategic/tactical decisions and put those decisions into operation with automated daily planning. Solvoyo provides plans at such a high level of detail that the action gap between planning and execution is blurred; we call it Closed-Loop Operational Management
  • The digital supply chain platform is modular, and you pay only for the features you use
  • The digital supply chain platform allows you to plan on all three time horizons: strategic, tactical and operational
  • Solvoyo is a fully integrated SaaS platform
