Sales & Demand Forecasting

Our forecasting engine is the beating heart of Shelf Planner. 

Every day, the engine analyses thousands of transactions to recognize trends and patterns that our customers could never pick up. 

The result is a true performance based inventory management that looks at actual potential and probability.

How does it work?

Shelf Planner is not like other inventory management systems. 
Based on data ingested from your store daily and external data sets, Shelf Planner generates new probabilistic models for each unique SKU—for every store, every day. These models are translated into profit maximization models to create the perfect order.
The probabilistic models are fed by vector autoregressive multivariate time series models that use a massive array of data sets, along with machine learning based dependent models to catch every possible swing in the wild world of retail.
