"With Flieber, we plan inventory for each brand on custom schedules, whether that’s weekly, quarterly, or twice yearly. The Flieber platform takes the entire supply chain network into account, as well as our parameters including product lead times, inventory positions, and others. The platform has streamlined our process for creating POs, seamlessly generating the POs for us, so that we don’t need to calculate it manually."
"Flieber enabled us to plan our financials throughout the year in a way that allowed us to not only save money but also have our products available 100% of the time. We had no idea how much money we were losing due to stock-outs and Flieber solved that with a cost that is just a fraction of those losses."
