Company
Red Wing Shoe Company specializes in footwear and work apparel that can stand up to conditions around the globe, from Middle East oil fields to Midwest cornfields. It's retail network, dealer channels, and directly owned stores serve the hardest working consumers in the world.

Problem
Forecasts managed at the style level often deviate greatly at the SKU level, creating scepticism at suppliers, who modified their monthly production plans to reflect their opinion regarding the appropriate SKU level mix.

Solution
Red Wing Shoes invested in their supply chain people, process and technology, including APICS certification as well as implementing Logility Voyager Solutions™. Only four months after launching Logility Voyager Solutions, Red Wing, along with its suppliers and retailers, reduced inventory across the network, increased fill rates, shortened lead times, cut their SIOP process time in half, and improved forecast accuracy by 30%.
