"We really took advantage of the Demand Planner app, too. Demand Planner is an affordable, elegant solution that has helped improve our inventory and purchasing. We were doing our predictive order patterns modelling on spreadsheets before. Demand planner takes that to another level, with elegance."

Wave McFarland, The Woolery

"Brightpearl’s Demand Planner functionality now allows us to dial in to a level of detail which is frankly intimidating! We no longer need to shoot from the hip; all the guesswork is taken out of what needs to be ordered, all the product data is synced and readily available so we’re able to create accurate forecasting that’s aligned to long-term customer demand – and we save a ton of time whilst doing it."

"This application alone does half of the operational side of the procurement by allowing us to plan more efficiently for each product down to each single SKU. It keeps everything in control. We can buy at the right time, and at the right volume. Our stock levels are managed incredibly well and it was part of the decision to use Brightpearl."
