Demand & Fulfillment

Customers want and can get a variety of goods delivered to them within hours. Make it their expectations that steer the supply chain.

The Demand software package is a tool for accurate demand planning on the basis of historical information and analysis using algorithms based on machine learning technology. By using the Demand solution, you will know what you will sell, to whom, when and in what quantity.

Demand is a sophisticated tool that uses the customer demand history of your company to create an accurate forecast of future demand. You can then use this forecast to drive planning for distribution, manufacturing, materials, and transportation.


  • Statistical modeling
    Advanced demand models.
  • Shaping demand
    Price management and promotions.
  • Implementation of a new product
    Optimize process and efficiency.
  • Digital supply chain
    The potential of big and master data and IoT.
  • One vision of demand
    Supply chain stakeholder collaboration.
  • Forecast management
    Effectively manage millions of SKUs.

Data aggregation

  • Demand allows you to collect information from suppliers, marketers and other sources to further improve the accuracy of your forecast. For example, if your company manufactures computers, you might gather information from chip suppliers regarding new technology and from retailers regarding customer buying habits to create a forecast that is much more accurate.

  • Adding such data is called judgement forecasting and is incorporated into your forecast by manually adding overrides, locking the forecast, entering targets, or modifying other values or parameters.

Measurable effects

  • Increased sales due to better product availability and also better pricing and promotional strategies at all stages of the product life cycle, leading to desired financial targets.
  • Improved margin due to a reduction in overdue products and lower discounts resulting from improved forecast accuracy assigning the right product to the right location.
  • Reduced inventories throughout the supply chain resulting from reduced demand volatility
    and the use of a single forecast throughout the supply chain.
  • Improved inventory availability and turnover by smoothing demand variability across the retail network and increasing synchronization in the supply chain.
  • Increased scheduler productivity with virtually maintenance-free forecasting capabilities.
  • Improved forecast accuracy due to advanced statistical analysis capabilities
    and the ability to segment demand streams
    and forecasting at multiple levels of the hierarchy.
  • Cross functional consensus on forecasts derived from forward visibility
    and the ability to display and compare the forecast in multiple ways.

Sales forecast

  • Leading companies are led by a single voice specified in the sales forecast – their customers. A good sales forecast is a must:
  • Accurate and connect precisely with other planning and execution processes.
  • Have the support of all stakeholders who will benefit from the forecast.
  • Be prepared and managed in an efficient manner.

Maximum precision

  • Blue Yonder Demand offers advanced demand forecasting solutions using world-class algorithms.
  • The system handles forecasting challenges, covering promotions, new products and external events such as weather. Industry standards
    and patented algorithms take into account different sales patterns using Machine Learning.
  • Forecasts are generated at different levels of the hierarchy to better account for trends
    and seasonality. Integrating promotion and price management with sales forecasts enables better demand shaping.
  • The system forecasts sales across all channels independently, offering tools for analyzing performance and managing exceptions.

Implementations and integrations of WMS systems

We deliver real results in the shortest possible time. As a result, the return on your investment will be quick and guaranteed.

Our team of consultants and project managers with several years of experience focuses on actual business needs, selecting such system parameters that will guarantee the most efficient operation of the warehouse. They will also take care of the technical aspects of WMS operation related to the creation of new, customized system functions.

We use the proven Blue Yonder Enterprise Methodology (BYEM), which enables projects to be implemented efficiently, on schedule and on budget, and with minimal risk.

Once everything is clear and described in functional and technical specifications, we install and configure the system and then help prepare and conduct tests. Together we decide on data migration and production takeoff. During and immediately after the launch, our consultants support users in quickly mastering operations and making good use of the knowledge gained during training.


A WMS works best in an integrated environment – it’s often not just an ERP system, but also a TMS, Labor Management, sales platform or courier systems. Our consultants can translate messages between any collaborating applications – whether it’s an in-house ecommerce platform or complex systems like SAP or Oracle.

We are specialists in Integrator – it is a tool that handles any integration perfectly and provides flexibility and operational reliability, including in integration with warehouse automation.

Integration is a key stage of the implementation plan – depending on the number of interfaces, it can take up to several weeks and is only completed when we consider that the cooperating systems are working as you intended and the transactional data is properly reconciled.

We have extensive experience in integrating BlueYonder products with voice picking solutions (we are a certified VoCollect Partner), Cubiscan dimensioning equipment, or internal logistics process automation solutions.


Already during the initial presentation, we will draw your attention to specific capabilities of the system that can significantly improve operations and enhance the quality of your services. During the project, at the stage of analyzing current processes and designing their future shape, we will use the knowledge from previous consultations and our previous experience to work with your team to design the best solution for your business.

We are aware that change in process always requires attention and critical revision of assumptions – but we also know that it pays off! Taking advantage of opportunities to automate and diversify the process – especially for picking or shipment preparation tasks – can yield quick results.

The production launch marks the closure of the implementation project – but also the opening of the continuous improvement phase of the system. Your specialists are already well trained and can take care of system performance and smooth processes. They are also able to adapt the configuration to changing business requirements.

And when business expectations require additional resources – HKK consultants will join the team and help prepare process modifications, additional reports and labels, integration with a new parent or transportation system, and offer the training necessary to take your team’s competence to the next higher level.


Training, support, development of WMS system

Continuous education and learning more about the system's features is the basis for a successful WMS implementation.

From the first training session, we familiarize key users and administrators with the system’s functions, show the possibilities of configuration and integration with the IT environment.

Prior to the production launch, we prepare the project team to conduct tests, develop documentation and conduct end-user training. Once the new system is in production, we help key users and trainers expand their knowledge of advanced functionality and learn new skills. We can arrange training sessions on, for example, reports, label preparation, launching new modules or configuration expansion.


Each information system after the configuration stage should be tested according to the developed test scenarios in order to minimize the risk of error in the production environment. We offer services of manual and automatic testing of new WMS functionalities before their production implementation in the warehouse IT infrastructure.

Support is already available during implementation – our consultants help maintain system availability during testing, Go-Live preparation and during production launch (hypercare). The support service is provided by consultants who know your configuration – so they always know where and what to look for.

During normal operations, for critical requests, our support services are available 24/7 in Polish and English. We help solve problems quickly and efficiently, without compromising your operations.

In special situations, the manufacturer’s participation in solving a problem or preparing a fix is required – our consultants then work closely with Blue Yonder engineers and customer specialists. As a result, the downtime or slowdown of operations is reduced to a minimum.

The configuration capabilities of BY WMS are extensive and require a critical approach during the pre-implementation analysis stage. We never encourage a wishful thinking approach – according to the principle of ‘and maybe it will come in handy’. Instead, we help you implement those features that are essential to your business. This will get your system off to a fast start and quickly gain momentum.

Once the system is running stably and giving momentum to your operations, it’s time to get busy turning up the pace – launching new features, tuning and automating processes. Together, we will determine the path forward for your system and provide the expertise and resources to implement this plan.

WMS development is a continuous and cyclical process – individual development projects may run in parallel and may require more resources than currently available in the client’s team. HKK consultants will join the project team on time and to the extent necessary to launch the project quickly and at low cost.

Upgrading to a new version can be crucial to system performance and reliability – if your WMS hasn’t been updated in several years, it’s time to think about it. Our consultants will introduce the new features and advise on how to use them. If you have been using a lot of modifications so far – you may find that they are no longer necessary to the same extent as before. This can help save on upgrade and support costs.

A fully trained implementation team can handle any form of implementation, no matter what the licensing method. We are prepared to implement for you Category Management On-premise solutions as well as those in the form of SaaS (Software as a Service), starting from single system modules and ending with an extensive network supporting micro and macro categories.


Category Management is the heart of a company’s commercial processes. It allows to make the most appropriate choices supported by a wide range of analyses. Of course, the process wouldn’t be so elaborate if it weren’t for data from integrated environments.

Our consultants are specialists in the integration of external systems, giving you, above all, the ability to import product, sales and store data. A component of each implementation plan is a workshop during which we conduct a mapping of the relevant data exchange fields together with you.

External systems feeding Category Management with data is the basis for a correct management process. But what about user comfort? We are also rushing to help in this field. We integrate manufacturer-prepared solutions (such as automatic import of product images) as well as dedicated personalizations, which most often serve to improve the user experience.


Training, support, development of CatMan systems

Our training team is made up of certified Blue Yonder consultants.

During the first workshop in the implementation process, we introduce users to the functionality of each module in order to correctly understand the optimal business process, using Blue Yonder tools.

Prior to the production launch, we conduct training of key users and end-users, preparing the entire team for a smooth change in the way work is done. In a situation where there is already a fully implemented Category Management system in the company, we help with the introduction of new users or help those already working to get to a higher level of sophistication.

It is easy to see that already at the stage of business meetings we get hooked on consultation by discussing processes and opportunities for optimization.

During the implementation process, our experienced consultants, based on the knowledge gained through courses, training and, most importantly, experience from past Category Management system implementations, will help you design or remodel your current process in a way that will bring tangible benefits. For each project implemented by HKK, we prepare an individual business specification, allowing us to estimate the added values after implementation at an early stage.

The production launch is the stage that completes the implementation process, but certainly does not close the development. Business expectations in this connection often require additional resources – HKK consultants are ready to support you in continuous improvement by modifying applications, running additional reports, expanding the system by adding integrations with external software.


The knowledge gained, in particular, during the implementation of Category Management solutions, allows the application of a system configuration appropriate to the requirements of the process. With such solutions, the system will take off in a short time and quickly gain momentum. Speed in development sometimes requires unconventional methods of adapting the solution. The HKK team has extensive experience in personalizing deployed solutions adding tremendous value.

Using the latest version of the system you have is key to the proper development of your business. Reported expectations for additional functionality are extremely important information for Blue Yonder. The manufacturer takes into account customer or partner demand when designing updates. Therefore, each new version is in line with the expectations of active users.

The process of running the update may turn out to be more complicated than we thought. This is because each configuration is business-specific and the key issue is not to lose it during the migration. In such situations, HKK’s team of consultants is here to help. We implement upgrades keeping all the necessary rules for this process – we prepare a backup of data, configurations, created interfaces and smoothly transition to the new version without losing the facilities developed so far.


Merchandising consultation

The appearance of the store is the showcase of your business, and Merchandising is more than a procedure to organize the shelves.

It plays an extremely important role in the image-building process, and is one of the most essential aspects of any establishment’s operations. Continuous development and improvement is important in business. That’s why it’s so important to tap into new trends and technologies.

Merchandising consultation will be an ideal solution for entrepreneurs who aim to: increase the effectiveness of product sales, improve the overall image of the store and avoid empty shelves.

As part of the consultation, we will help you develop a sales strategy that will include, among other things:

  • Even better understanding of consumer habits and decisions at the point of sale.
  • Activation of product sales, through appropriate selection of assortment taking into account customer preferences and needs and market trends.
  • Optimal placement of products on store shelves through visualizations in the form of planograms, including issues of visibility and availability.
