SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Alloy Technologies, Inc. announced today that its Alloy.ai solution is now available on SAP® Store and is part of SAP’s industry cloud portfolio for the consumer products industry. Alloy.ai brings consumer products customers that leverage SAP Integrated Business Planning (SAP IBP) for Supply Chain visibility to consumer demand and inventory across their supply chains.
Alloy.ai leverages integration capabilities of SAP Business Technology Platform (SAP BTP) to integrate with SAP IBP for Supply Chain and SAP BTP data and analytics solutions using SAP Integration Suite to deliver harmonized, granular demand, inventory and other point-of-sale data to customers as part of SAP’s industry cloud portfolio for the consumer products industry.
“Problems like stockouts and excess inventory continue to present a major challenge for every brand selling into retail. With Alloy.ai now available as part of SAP’s industry cloud portfolio, consumer brands can gain current and complete visibility into their inventory positions and consumer demand, so they can make better, more accurate decisions across their supply chains,” said Joel Beal, CEO and co-founder of Alloy Technologies. “Consumer products companies are realizing that it’s not enough to keep an eye on consumer preferences monthly or weekly. These brands need immediate insights from their POS and inventory data – by day, by store and even by SKU – to stay competitive.”
“The inclusion of Alloy.ai in SAP’s industry cloud portfolio is a great benefit for the consumer products industry,” said Anna Linden, VP, Global Head of Supply Chain Planning Solution Management at SAP. “Data from the broader ecosystem is a key driver for insightful and aligned business decisions. Brands that aren’t prioritizing granular visibility and rapid-response in this new climate will struggle to stay competitive. Our partnership with Alloy Technologies helps enable businesses that use SAP IBP for Supply Chain to access broad sets of harmonized daily point-of-sale, inventory and supply chain data so they can automatically build more accurate forecasts and ensure business continuity in times of supply chain disruption.”
Alloy.ai is a demand and inventory control tower purpose-built to help consumer products companies sell more, save time and solve complex supply chain challenges. With daily SKU-store level insights in Alloy.ai, brands can quickly sense problems, predict issues their competitors won’t see coming and respond in real time, within seconds instead of days.

- An early warning system when their demand and supply are out of sync, powered by daily SKU store-level insights
- 850+ pre-built connectors to automatically pull and harmonize data from all their retailers, ecommerce partners, channel inventory and ERP
- A single source of information for their sales and supply chain teams to make faster business decisions
- Accurate near-term forecasts (two to six weeks) based on daily SKU-store level data to make better decisions about inventory allocation, promotions and order adjustments with retail partners
