Loading Point of Sale (POS) Data for Demand Planning

Many companies provide their POS data to help their suppliers better plan their supply. DemandCaster supports POS data through either uploading the data or automating the data load.

File Structure

With each new upload the prior values are replaced or as an option may be appended to the existing POS data.

The data structure is as follows by column:

  • A - Cust Code
  • B - Item/Product Code
  • C - Date Sold
  • D - Qty Sold

Optional Forecast using POS

As an option, the POS data may be forecasted. If this is something you would like to do, please let us know and we will enable. Please note that adding forecasting to the POS data will increase the forecasting run time since it is done in addition to the normal demand planning forecast process.
