• Hager Group

Hager Group is a leading supplier of solutions and services for electrical installations in residential, commercial and industrial buildings. Ranging from energy distribution through cable management and wiring accessories to building automation and security systems, its products are sold in 129 countries with a turnover of €1.9 billion in 2015.

Hager Group wishes to continuously improve its forecasting processes and reduce its inventory levels while ensuring best-in-class customer service. This drive led Hager Group and Quintiq to come together to improve demand forecasting of 60,000 products across 30 market segments. This collaboration is expected to enable Hager Group to achieve 90 % forecast accuracy.

Quintiq technology will enable stakeholders to adjust the forecast for any part of the product and market hierarchy in real time. It supports the Hager Group strategy of continuous innovation by automatically managing the introduction of new products. The solution will automate parts of the product lifecycle management process by considering product replacements as well as evolutions in their bill of material.
Quintiq was selected for our needs because they were able to provide a globally satisfactory answer to every expectation...We are counting on Quintiq not only to manage statistical calculations on a large data range, but also for its extended simulation capacities. This allows us to further stimulate the collaborative atmosphere between all teams and achieve a better forecast quality.
