New Technology Solutions (NTS) has completed development of a new supply chain management solution aimed at pharmaceutical and food distribution companies. The Sales Forecasting and Order Processing (SFOP) application has been developed by NTS, the software arm of Intertec Systems group, to meet growing demand for automation in supply chain processes.

SFOP is a modular system that provides automation of ordering, sales forecasting and order monitoring, and is aimed at companies that deal with a number of distributors, either country-wide or region-wide. Sub-modules cater to a number of different functions such as requests for sales data and stock reports from distribution partners, forecasting, customer and location preferences and trend analysis for product categories or brands.

Naresh Kothari, managing director, Intertec Systems, said that SFOP is an ideal solution for companies that operate through distribution partners across different territories. “In such organisations the sales department is responsible for ensuring that optimum stock levels are maintained with distributors to achieve target results. A well-defined sales and order-forecasting system is therefore essential.”

The application also helps businesses to forecast requirements from manufacturers, to enable more efficient ordering from suppliers. Order dispatch and tracking are also included, to manage fulfilment, and the whole system can be integrated with Intertec Financials, NTS’ own ERP solution.
