The Forecasting Engine is a Machine Learning system which trains, tests and runs predictive models using external and client data.
The big challenge
For Brands and retailers reliable forecasting is a critical and increasingly forensic business function. Getting it right drives supply efficiencies, and maximises sales and customer satisfaction. Getting it wrong means Out of Stocks, and profitability and share compromises.
Look beyond where you already are
For FMCG vendors who need reliable forecasts of buyer behaviour, our Forecasting Engine is a machine learning system that constantly adapts to changing circumstances. Unlike demand planning software and enterprise analytics platforms, our product allows non- staff across business functions to access reliable short-range forecasts based on climate, calendar and promotions triggers.
Find the right tool
Forecasting product demand has never been more complex – or more vital. Our Forecasting Engine exists to produce the most reliable sales forecasts possible with big data and machine learning. When forecasting is automated, everyone across S&OP and the Supply Chain can focus on optimization instead.
Unlock new possibilities
Our Engine is scalable, it can automatically model thousands of SKUs across stores and regions and achieves accuracies of up to 95% in certain categories (average 81% across all products).
A factory for producing tailored predictive models
Using machine learning to automatically select and train the best possible model for each scenario the system monitors model accuracy – models are updated and re-tuned using fresh data to keep them within accuracy tolerances. We collate and maintain all the external data streams needed to fuel the predictions.
