Ficosota Chooses Demand Solutions DSX For Cloud-Based Supply Chain Planning


Demand Management Inc., a leading global resource for cloud-based supply chain management solutions, announced today that Ficosota, a provider of household and personal care products, has chosen Demand Solutions DSX SaaS as its new supply chain planning platform. The Demand Solutions cloud platform will support the company’s operations worldwide.

Headquartered in Sofia, Bulgaria, Ficosota has enjoyed rapid growth since its founding in 1994, thanks in part to several key acquisitions. But even as Ficosota grew, the company continued to manage its supply chain with an ERP system and a series of spreadsheets. The company struggled to produce accurate forecasts—and eventually recognized the need for a true supply chain planning platform.

“Our top priority was to correct forecast errors across our 1,000 SKUs each month,” recalls Dessislav Draganov, Business Development Director, Ficosota. “Demand Solutions DSX not only provides the level of demand planning sophistication we needed, but also delivers end-to-end process coverage.”

With Demand Solutions DSX, Ficosota can now begin to streamline its list of 1,000 SKUs. Because the solution’s demand planning functionality feeds into requirements planning and provides automated leveling of production, the company also hopes to prevent stock-outs and major fluctuations in sales—good news to the 30 sales reps who will be able to access the platform in the cloud.

“We are delighted that Ficosota has chosen to take its global success to a new level on Demand Solutions DSX SaaS,” says Bill Harrison, president, Demand Management. “We believe that having cloud-based supply chain planning functionality will enable Ficosota to create highly accurate forecasts and enhance the profitability of its manufacturing operations.”
