Launch Inventory Planner
To start using Inventory Planner and to get the most out of inventory forecasting, we recommend the following steps:
- Ensure your first sync of data is underway
- Adjust account settings
- Provide additional product information such as seasonality (Optional)
- Set lead times and days of stock (Required - most important step for producing an accurate forecast)
See our full Launch Guide here.
Inventory Planner demand forecasting will be used to produce purchase orders. Once saved, purchase orders will sync to Skubana. After the PO sync, all additional work will happen in Skubana including receiving, editing, or cancelling the purchase order.
Product information, sales history, vendor information, and previously created purchase orders will all sync from Skubana to Inventory Planner on the first sync, then will be updated automatically every 24 hours.
