NEO: The Intelligent Agent for Your Business
NEO is your all-knowing supply chain assistant, continuously identifying, monitoring, analyzing and resolving problems to help you achieve autonomous supply chain management
What is NEO?
NEO is the brain behind the Sentient Business Network. He’s your all-knowing supply chain assistant, continuously identifying, monitoring, analyzing and resolving problems so you can focus on the important issues. NEO gathers information from across your entire business network and analyzes and optimizes business processes and resolves issues. His capabilities include autonomous forecasting, replenishment, sourcing, transportation optimization and much more. He works in the background and with users to constantly find and fix issues. NEO knows, learns and acts to keep your supply chain and your business network running optimally.
With today’s global complex supply chains involving thousands of SKUs and product variations, partners and channels, manual planning and management are just not effective nor scalable. Yet to run efficiently, companies must continually monitor and synchronize supply to demand, adjust forecasts, recalculate orders, inventory levels, and select optimal transportation modes. That’s where NEO can help.
NEO Brings Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning to Your Supply Chain
NEO starts out smart and gets smarter. NEO has accumulated wisdom from across the network, across companies and a variety of scenarios. He collects and analyzes information from across the network, from internal and external systems and data streams, to fine tune his decision-making process to deliver increasingly effective results.
How NEO Can Help
He monitors conditions across the network, identifies problems and can modify or generate transactions as needed, optimizing processes such as demand planning, replenishment and transportation. NEO runs in real time, monitoring and managing. You can use him as is or program your own NEO to perform custom tasks. Some of the typical jobs NEO performs:
- AI forecast management
- Last minute allocation

What does it take to effectively address challenges in the supply chain? What’s really required is real-time “always on” planning and execution capabilities that eliminate the information lead times between unplanned shifts in consumer demand or supply capability.
The success of AI in supply chains is heavily dependent on information accuracy, data timeliness, and selection of the correct decision space for AI applications. In this webinar, Joe Bellini explains the basics of AI that supply chain pros need to know, and how they can get the most from their AI implementations.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) can offer a huge benefit to supply chain managers, but only if it is based on solid fundamentals that take into account the diverse and dynamic nature of today’s modern supply chains. This report identifies the eight fundamentals that need to be in place in order to achieve the dramatic returns that AI is capable of delivering.
