Retail is an increasingly complex business with demand uncertainty growing due to ultra-competitive trading conditions and a fundamental change in customer behaviour . We use the latest software to capture and analyse all your data to uncover the hidden opportunities to increase sales and enhance cash flow.
Greater accuracy delivers better results
Ironically, this market uncertainty produces valuable new data and potential insights that many Retailers have no way to take advantage of it. Using analytical capabilities and approaches based on cumbersome manual processes, old algorithms and aggregated sales histories is a serious barrier to improving trading performance.
Traditional supply chain systems cannot easily interpret new demand signals and solve the difficult problem of measuring the impact of external demand factors on baseline demand. Many retailers are left with disappointing results, significant forecast errors, and manually intensive processes leading to poor productivity.
Our forecasting and replenishment solutions help solve problems that planners, buyers and merchandisers face every day. Rather than a “pick best” approach, we utilize a more accurate self-adaptive demand forecasting algorithm that creates a reliable baseline. Machine learning adjusts the baseline by identifying the key demand factors at a sku store level. This “demand modelling” approach uses automation to analyse all the relevant variables and the complex interactions between them.
