Twin Hill maintain a healthy balance between service and inventory levels with sofco Demand Planning

August 2020

As restrictions have begun to ease, during the lockdown and beyond, some organizations have seen dramatic changes in their Supply Chains with product delays caused by loss of productivity as a result of implementing social distancing measures and other precautions required.

With over 20 years servicing the corporate apparel industry, Twin Hill specializes in full-service, custom apparel programs for brand-focused partners within the mid-market uniform sector. Twin Hill has built strong partner relationships to ensure their supply chains stay consistent with minimal impact to their customers. One of these relationships is with sofco; Twin Hill has leveraged multiple years of history from within sofco Demand Planning to build a clean demand signal from that data to help plan effectively for the future.

sofco Demand Planning has given Twin Hill the insight to manipulate future purchase orders based on sales affected by the pandemic. It has helped to maintain a healthy balance between service and inventory levels by only ordering what is required. This partnership, and having the right data available to manipulate, ensure better decisions can be made in a changing world, which is right and timely for both customers and manufacturers.

“Greencore is involved in multiple categories, supplying a diverse range of products with different characteristics that require very different manufacturing processes. We selected sofco as they have an End-to-End planning and execution system that can be configured easily to fit these disparate demands. Our approach is much more sophisticated and collaborative now.”

“What impressed us most about the sofco people was they understood our business, listened, and would bring a lot of experience to the project. They brought solid solutions to the issues we presented them with. It was clear from the outset that we were going to be able to work well together as a team and deliver this project. That is exactly what has happened.”
