Company Cites Demand Solutions’ Strong Presence in North Africa as Instrumental in Purchase Decision October 12, 2017 08:15 AM Eastern Daylight Time ST. LOUIS--( BUSINESS WIRE )--Demand Management, Inc., a leading global resource for cloud-based supply chain management solutions, announced today that Manufacture de Panneaux Bois du Sud (MPBS), a leading paper and forest products company, has become the first company in Tunisia to go live on the Demand Solutions DSX supply chain planning platform. MPBS’s Demand Solutions implementation has been supporting the company’s forecasting and demand planning activities since January 2016. Founded in 1980 and located in Sfax, Tunisia, MPBS provides plywood, melamine panels, and plated panels, as well as machining and contract works, security doors, and renewable energy products. With 220 employees and annual revenues of $50 million, MPBS was recently listed on the Tunis Stock Exchange. Like many fast-growing manufacturers, MPBS had always tried to manage its inventory via spreadsheets and an ERP system. In time, it became evident to MBPS’s leadership that to meet their growth goals, they would need more sophisticated software. “When we began researching potential supply chain planning solutions, the one vendor with a strong presence in Northern Africa was Demand Management,” recalls Mohamed Sellami, General Manager, MPBS. “We quickly became convinced that their Demand Solutions DSX platform could help us reach higher levels of customer service while reducing our overall inventory levels and the associated costs.” MPBS came to this decision with the help of Demand Management’s local technology partner, Integrated Business Planning Solutions (INBUPS). Once the decision was made, INBUPS conducted a very successful implementation of DSX, led by Anis Trabelsi, General Manager, and Myriam Fayadhi, Junior Consultant. “We are delighted that MPBS has chosen Demand Solutions DSX, which extends our global footprint to our 79th country,” says Bill Harrison, President, Demand Management. “Despite MPBS being a fairly new DSX user, we are excited to hear that they have already recorded a 10 percent reduction in inventory and an increase from four or five inventory turns per year to six—all while sales have increased by seven percent. They are aiming to reduce stock by another 15 percent by the end of 2018, while also significantly improving their fill rates and optimizing their pricing.” About Demand Management, Inc.
