ForecastPlanner™ for

RETAILERS

For retailers, we offer an automatic large-scale forecasting solution including events forecasting, promotional forecasting, life cycle based forecasting and target inventory optimization.

Creation Of Target Inventory

• Target inventory is based on the item forecastability and on intelligent detection of past behavior.

• Target inventory is calculated differently for every item/store based on its segment (steady, sporadic, short, seasonal, etc) and on its life status (launch, promoted, phasing out).

• Management of promotion target (how to start and leave a promotion).

• Forecastability and variability of demand and supply govern the safety stock portion of the target inventory.

•A careful past behavior pattern recognition verifies/updates the target inventory.

•Prices

•Seasonality

•Promotional and advertising activities

Stock-outs

•Competing promotions

•Clearance promotions

•Global activities

•Market sentiment
