Brookes Retail Supply Chain Solutions helps stores and online retailers improve demand forecasting accuracy, inventory optimisation and retail replenishment planning.

We specialise in meeting the complex demand forecasting challenges faced by multichannel retailers, “long tail” product catalogues with intermittent and volatile demand, products with seasonal demand, new product forecasting and promotional forecasting.

We help retailers combine demand and supply data from multiple channels into a single integrated system to create a unified demand signal that improves demand forecasting, resulting in a more responsive supply chain with increased shelf fill rates, improved supply chain visibility and reduced inventory costs.

At Brookes Retail we understand the challenges faced by many retailers especially online retailers having an extensive product catalog and the importance being able to fulfill orders for a large number of products which are often slow moving and have different demand patterns. This requires a sophisticated supply chain planning solution that takes into account many different demand signals.

Our internet retailing supply chain planning solutions help reduce the planning workload and achieve improved KPIs by optimising supply chain planning with automated forecasting, inventory optimisation and predictive replenishment. Accurately forecasting product availability allows internet retailers to maximise sales and margin and minimize stockouts and overstocks and the need for clearances.

We achieve improved forecast accuracy for even the most complex supply chains and diverse products with automated forecasting at the SKU-level, taking into account demand patterns, seasonal factors, market trends, new product launches and other factors which affect the volatility of demand.

Using predictive analytics and machine learning, we allow retailers to harness the massive amount of new data available to automate and enhance many routine supply chain planning decisions.

“The flexibility of consultants during all this change was world-class … So far this project has gone far better than we ever could have imagined … We’ve actually managed to grow our revenue and reduce our inventory costs, so I’m very pleased.”
- Chris Clowes, Supply Chain Manager, Costa Express
