We provide our products to distributors, who in turn supply various retail chains. We analyze sales reports and other data provided by our distributors to determine market trends. This places us in the position of being responsible for determining the right amount of product to be sent, and to also provide information as to where it needs to be sent. Any errors may mean that a particular item becomes unavailable when needed, or that overstock occurs.
Though producing reports that will provide accurate quantity and dissemination information may seem like a small task, it is not. We receive a very large number of reports from distributors on a regular basis. These are often in the form of Excel files which must be compiled into a single database. There is a large amount of data to be analyzed, and to do so manually would be time consuming and error prone.
To assure maximum results, this work must to be automated. While there are several companies that offer a host of products that claim to be effective, we chose Mycroft Assistant because – right out of the box – it offers the functionality we require. It is fully customizable, via some very intuitive processes. Thus, we had absolutely no trouble integrating Mycroft Assistant. We actually were pleasantly surprised by the entire program, not only because cloud technology is involved, but because the customer service behind it is superb. We never have a long wait when we need help or have questions.
We rely on Mycroft Assistant, on a daily basis, to provide a fully automated solution. The reports it generates provide us with an “overall picture” of requirements for all our customers. One of the many features of the Assistant that has been invaluable is its ability to check the data we upload and alert us if anything might cause a problem with accurate forecasting. We do not have to babysit this system.
Since implementation began, we have greatly reduced the manual labor involved in providing key data to our customers. We obtain results in a few seconds, instead of a few hours, thus reclaiming hours of management time that we use to the best advantage of our company, and our clients.
We highly recommend Mycroft Assistant as a service provider and have come to regard the company as a trusted partner.

I consider the idea of implementing the system for inventory management and planning as a small yet competitive advantage.
Although the solution provided did not change my job, it simplified my work immensely. One of the problems I face (on a global scale) is in the area of stock replenishment. The system I got from you solved that issue. It confirms or suggests changes that ensure timeliness of ordering of specific products from my supplier(s).
I consider implementation of the solution successful. In fact, I will try to keep the settings a secret from my rivals

We have been involved with an extensive procurement optimization project for several years, and finished it in 2014. During the course of the project we managed to reduce the need for lending resources by magnitudes.
To complete total company optimization, we began looking for a system that would implement an algorithm to forecast the sales of rare products. We needed to have the ability to optimize the Sales and Procurement Department’s planning process. The product offered by your company appeared to be the best, not only because it provided customized support, but also because it was cost effective. That is why we choose it, and I am glad that we did.

Prior to using your solution for inventory optimization, we held more than 12 million in stock. We sometimes experienced congestion in production, lack of products that were in demand, or the presence of excess stock.
Six months after we started using the system, the situation improved dramatically. Our stock reserves decreased to 4.5 million due to the gradual reduction of illiquid positions, but sales remained the same. This was a great outcome. In addition, we have reduced the frequency of uneven load production. In the past, it took two-to-three days for our specialists to achieve results by working with hard-to-manage Excel tables. Now, fulfillment of our needs is now performed automatically by simply pressing three buttons.
In sum, our amount of unsold or unused stock decreased, working capital increased, product turnover increased, and the human factor has been minimized.

Using this software solution has resulted in:
– significant reduction in the labor force needed to prepare an order. One operator can work through virtually any volume of stock in a single day;
– elimination of the human factor in the preparation of orders. There is no more “forgetting,” or making a mistake (such as entering an incorrect amount) during any part of the fulfillment process;
– elimination of ties to the employee. If a specialist changes, there is no need for a new employee to learn or memorize a new stock list;
– automatic verification of every order against the supplier’s bill, including analysis of changes in price and order accuracy;
– flexible parameter setting that automatically adjusts to current sales and accurately plans orders for future sales.
Detalid recommends using Mycroft solution for planning and order processing. It is especially useful for companies that have a wide range of products and experience seasonal sales fluctuations.

Because we purchase our required supplies abroad, and because logistics of procuring these products can be a complex and lengthy process, the drawing up of the order for the supplier took the procurement specialist an inordinate amount of time. Once we started using the system, procurement became much simpler. Completing a purchase order can now be done in just a few clicks.
We did not have to undergo radical changes in order to greatly simplify our work. Because the system allows us also to check for the accuracy (or lack thereof) of our replenishment plans, we would recommend usingthe automated inventory management system to any company that is plagued with procurement inefficiencies.
