Demand Management Systems will be exhibiting at the up-and-coming Smart Supply Chain Technology Show on stand C40.
The Asian-Pacific region continues to be one of the fast growing global markets. The emergence of China as a dominant manufacturing market globally has seen the requirement for more accurate forecasting increase. With the emergence of longer lead times for imported products, many companies have discovered the need for more accurate forecasting in order to at least maintain customer service levels while improving their return from inventory.
In line with this trend, Demand Solutions has developed into a popular Demand Planning tool within the Asia-Pacific region. Demand Management Systems (DMS) has marketed and supported Demand Solutions since 1989 within this region. Currently, with over 130 clients, DMS continues to expand Demand Solutions presence in the region through new clients and most importantly, through their expanding requirements, existing clientele.
DMS has always endeavoured to provide customers with special service; attention to customer service detail and easily accessible front line support to customers has been a primary mission objective for DMS. Being a small organisation, one of the benefits is the opportunity to offer greater flexibility and personalised attention to our customers.
Demand Solutions’ Australian customers have expressed such satisfaction with the Demand Solutions product, the level of service detail and front line support from DMS that many of our Australian customers such as:
· Kodak Polychrome Graphics
· PPG Paints
· Roche Diagnostics
· Schneider Electric
· The Wrigley Company
These companies have recommended Demand Solutions and DMS’s services to their affiliated organisations throughout Asia Pacific. As a result DMS has implemented and currently supports Demand Solutions clients (from its Sydney, Australia offices) into China, India, Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, Sri Lanka Thailand and Vietnam
The visibility and flexibility in application make DS adaptable to the variety of business approaches and models throughout the Asia Pacific region. For most of these organisations, the country affiliates operate as their own entities. However, an emerging trend is for the headquarters to be generally located in Singapore, Hong Kong, or, with the growth of China, Shanghai. These HQ’s are being used to centralise the Demand Planning Process for all their businesses within the region, once again reinforcing the need for Demand Solutions.
Some of the recent companies to join the Demand Solutions family in Australasia include: Bayer Japan, Behringer Singapore, Bristol Myers Squib Vietnam, The Crane Group, Farmoz, Ferrero Australia, Hills Industries, Sandoz, Tyco Healthcare Singapore, Willow Ware Australia.
The Smart Supply Chain Technology Show will be held on the 20th and 21st of June 2007 as part of Supply Chain Week and alongside the Smart Conference.
