Forecast Factors

Our demand planning solutions include a wide array of parameters and analytics to predict demand. Recent sales trends, seasonality, promotional activity, store in-stock levels, and production availability are just some of the factors that play a role in producing a confident forecast.

Forecast with Predictive Weather Driven Analytics

Injecting Planalytics predictive weather driven demand analytics adds another factor that may increase or decrease demand (by region) and produce more accurate inventory requirements by week. This provides even more robust and efficient planning which lowers inventory carrying costs and frees up more working capital.
