Better predictions remove the guessing game

Accurate demand forecasting across all categories — including increasingly important fresh food — is key to delivering sales and profit growth. Our AI-powered models and analytic platform use shopper demand and robust causal factors to completely capture the complexity and reach of today’s retail supply chain.

Machine learning for cleansing, learning, and adapting

With supervised machine learning, our solutions can first understand the historical patterns and then be introduced to a broader data set over time, cleansing and allowing it to find patterns that humans can’t detect as accurately or efficiently.

We specialize in high-volume retail, so we know exactly how to train and optimize our models for the nuances and specifics of retail and CPG demand planning, rather than taking a generalized approach. And with external variables and contextual data such as events calendars, seasonality, weather, or even extreme outliers, we deliver the most accurate forecasts.

Supply Chain Demand Forecasting AI
