One of America’s biggest Private-Label Snack Nut Manufacturers Goes Best-of-Breed with New Forecasting Software
JBSS taps Demand Foresight to master demand planning and supply chain management for 3,500 distinct products
(I-Newswire) March 18, 2010 - GOLDEN, Colo. – (March 18, 2010) – John B. Sanfilippo & Son (NASDAQ: JBSS), maker of Fisher Nuts and one of America’s largest private-label snack nut manufacturers, has begun implementation of Demand Foresight’s best-of-breed demand planning and supply chain management software.
Based in Illinois, JBSS has five processing facilities nationwide and over $500 million in annual sales from retail, wholesale and private label channels — domestically and overseas. In addition to managing many products from field to shelf, JBSS faces the challenge of planning and forecasting for more than 3,500 product stock-keeping units (SKUs).
“Our leadership team had the vision to see that reducing forecasting error was one of the fastest paths to carrying less inventory, and thus key to increasing profitability,” said Tom Kirkham, JBSS’s director of systems implementation. “For sheer mathematical horsepower, and for how the solution empowers our entire team to visualize and contribute to forecasts, Demand Foresight was the clear winner.”
The implementation marks a big leap forward for JBSS as it moves from intermittent high-level sales forecasting to execution-level forecasting, which delivers real-time, actionable insight for multiple facilities, product lines and customers.
“Our research has demonstrated a direct correlation between forecast accuracy and a company's profitability. Manufacturers are looking for new approaches to achieve higher accuracy,” said Noha Tohamy, vice president of supply chain research at AMR Research.
