Smart Software to lead Microsoft Dynamics NAV Summit Session on Inventory Optimization and Intermittent Demand

Belmont, Mass., October, 2019 – Smart Software, Inc., provider of industry-leading demand forecasting, inventory planning, and inventory optimization solutions, today announced that CEO Greg Hartunian, will present at the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Summit from October 15-18 in Kissimmee, FL.

Greg Hartunian and Bruce Kennedy, Senior Consultant at ArcherPoint will present “Inventory Optimization and Intermittent Demand – Why Forecasting Isn’t Enough.”  The session details how to plan optimal inventory levels for thousands of items when demand is intermittent. Seemingly random, sporadic demand is the worst case scenario for accurately forecasting demand and inventory requirements. Typical planning approaches such as reliance on sales forecasts and rules of thumb methods, why they often fail, and how probabilistic forecasting methods can make a big difference to the bottom line will be discussed. They will demonstrate practical examples, working through a service level-driven methodology to manage risk and find the optimal balance between inventory investment and availability, and then send corresponding replenishment drivers to Business Central 365/NAV to make it so.

The presentation is scheduled for Oct. 16, 1-2 PM. Smart Software will be also exhibiting at the conference showcasing Smart Inventory Planning & Optimization and bi-directional integrations to Microsoft Dynamics NAV,  Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, and Microsoft Dynamics AX.
