Automotive Aftermarket

Forecasting demand for automotive parts is like chasing a moving target. Seasonal, fast- and slow-moving items such as vintage auto parts, regional uniqueness, and competitive online threats are accepted ‘necessary evils’. Reverse this.

HVACR and Plumbing

You’re in the business of making people’s homes and workplaces comfortable and efficient. But what about your own business? Feeling the heat of new competitors, rising commodity costs, seasonality and large assortments?

Furniture

Minimize the impact of long and variable lead times related to imported furniture. Proactively understand the cost trade-offs of inventory on-hand. Use insights to optimize promotions, quoting, discounts, forward buys ahead of a cost increase, and more.

Foodservice & Food Distribution

Are perishable items and safety stock feasting on your margins? Fill hungry bellies, not shelves — with specialized features including Fresh Product Forecasting and Seasonal Product forecasting, Intra-Day Replenishment and Shelf-Life Management.

Wine & Spirits

Your business thrives on people coming together to celebrate. But the complexity of forecasting seasonality, lead times, political buys and promotions is nothing to celebrate. Get the insights to improve product availability, sales and revenue with less risk.

Hardware

Demand trends can change in an instant, when macro-trends such as a hurricane or pandemic hit. Plan for chaos and balance inventory profitably for seasonal items, like snow shovels and camping equipment – versus stockpiling and markdowns.

Electrical & Industrial

Right-size inventory levels for slow-moving and intermittent-demand products such as incandescent light bulbs that take up costly space on shelves, but are essential to key customers. Use pricing strategically to shape demand and grow margin on high-selling products across broad assortments.

Pet Food & Supplies

Keep high-turn essentials like dog food and kitty litter in stock. Avoid sales loss to an online competitor. Allocate and move inventory between locations with speed and efficiency. Integrate inventory data into the pricing strategy to shape demand.
