Modus Planning’s bottom-up methodology allows brands to plan their customers with varying levels of granularity to suit your needs. Need to plan Sprout’s through all of the DCs that support them? We got that covered. Need to consolidate all of the Wal-Mart DCs into one? We can do that too.
With Sales planning at the retailer level, that plan translates directly to the underlying customer warehouses, making sure you stay in the know.
With the forecast loaded, Modus integrates whatever order data and customer inventory data you have to fine tune the calculation where we can.
Modus then reviews each day to project the days on hand by product by customer warehouse. View a days on hand heat map to find your biggest opportunities.
Predicting customer warehouse inventory isn’t just about keeping your brand in stock, it’s about delighting your customers while keeping the supply chain fulfillments in-line with the forecast.
With the shelf-life variables we have in place, you have the line of sight needed to reduce spoilage before the order ships. Even for non-perishable goods, when inventories are high enough, spoilage risk is real. Make sure you are never in that position.
Change case counts and delivery dates on each order to understand how inventory positions are impacted. Need to see if rounding to a full pallet will create a shrink risk, we got you covered.
Service crises happen, and they’re tough. In a complex supply chain any one of a thousand factors can keep you from supplying customers in full. When that happens, customers will vie for the available stock. With Modus’ Order Management module, you can fill customers to their consumption ensuring you stay in stock on shelf while pulling out of the service issue.
Everyone on Modus has access to the Modus University, a collection of courses that not only teaches you what the buttons do, but walks you through many of the best practices of forecasting and collaborative planning.

Prior to using Modus Planning's cloud-based platform, Beyond Better Foods faced trade issues related to the deep fragmentation of their overall process. Rather than an integrated system to manage, Beyond Better Foods used many diverse spreadsheets to plan every aspect of trade, which created many isolated realities versus one cohesive plan for the company. This disorganization led to missed opportunities and frustration as the company continued to grow at a breakneck pace.
Jen stated that "post-Modus, everything lives in the same place... really we pull everything out of Modus." Using Modus turned Beyond Better Foods into a streamlined, focused, and communicative CPG powerhouse. From trade promotion to distribution and financial forecasts, along with every aspect in between, Modus Planning provides one centralized system to evaluate each part of the business. This allows employees to better understand the bigger picture and how one aspect impacts another.
"Prior to using Modus Planning, we were just constantly course correcting and fixing things versus moving forward."
