Layer Rounding

Layer Rounding provides three options for customers who order in bulk to round up qualifying order quantities to create even pallet layers that are more stable and efficient to pick:

  • Layer Pick
  • Percent Complete
  • Rounding Package Level

Each option serves a slightly different need, and they can be used together.

Coke RED Survey

Coke bottlers regularly conduct RED (Right Execution Daily) surveys at retail locations. There are different surveys depending upon the sales channel.

Using Ux fields, surveys can be generated in eoStar and then conducted using mobile devices on eoTouch, eoTablet, and eoMobile. The results are then transmitted to eoStar.

Coke Red Survey results can then be exported to Coke via the Coke Interface in eoStar.

Forecasting Worksheet

The forecasting spreadsheet is used for sales forecasting and can be exported to populate Dynamics GP’s manufacturing sales forecasts. Several improvements have been made to enhance performance and better equip Forecasting to handle multiple warehouses.

The spreadsheet allows for 5 weeks of forecasting at one time, that can be viewed by individual days and features by package, that will pro-rate across the items within that package.

It also allows for chain level forecast adjustments to help to more easily adjust for Chain specific promotions happening within the forecast period.
