Results Count - The iKIS Difference
Data Profits’ recent implementation at a top 100 retailer is just one example of Data Profits’ ability to successfully tighten the links in the supply chain. iKIS provides leading wholesalers/distributors, suppliers, and mid-tier retailers with a short 30 day install and a typical 90 day return on investment providing better service to consumers, higher sales, lower inventory and lower operating costs for the retailer.
Unlike other enterprise software systems that focus only on the products that are in-stock, iKIS' unique solution looks at the broader measurement of customer service level, purchase orders and replenishment levels. With an integrated and easy to customize forecasting solution, unique data cleaning tools and inventory optimization wizards, iKIS determines the most profitable time to place orders ensuring that the right inventory is available at the right location when a customer is ready to purchase.
