Outsource Network Visibility

activity across your outsourced business network, regardless of the complexity and number of tiers.
It allows you to monitor demand signals between partners and maintain near real-time projections of
inventory, assuring that your outsourced network delivers the reliable and predictable service you need.
Problems occurring in a downstream location are communicated immediately to upstream locations, allowing
the multi-tier business network to react quickly and remain synchronized.

Allegro Outsource Network Visibility allows you to effectively monitor and manage all
product movements and business transactions throughout your outsourced business network to customers.
Transform your fragmented set of outsourced partners into a responsive demand-driven business network
capable of delivering the service you need to remain competitive in today's challenging markets.
Allegro Demand-Supply Propagation allows real-time communication of changes to supply
and demand throughout the multiple tiers of your outsourced business network. Allegro Demand-Supply
Propagation monitors actual activity between outsourced partners to ensure that inventory,
production and shipments are on target to deliver against your demand fulfillment plans.
Outsource Inventory Management
Effective inventory management can drive significant profitability throughout your outsourced network by
reducing inventory buffers, freeing working capital and improving customer service. Allegro
Outsource Inventory Management supports numerous inventory management approaches, all aimed at
improving supply assurance while lowering inventory levels. The solution supports multiple methods of
setting inventory targets including fixed, periods of coverage, and statistical methods which can be
time-phased throughout the horizon to address product lifecycle requirements. Allegro Outsource
Inventory Management constantly monitors inputs to inventory target formulas and automatically
generates new targets when deviations occur, creating an automated closed loop system for optimally
aligning inventory throughout your outsourced network.
