Powerful. Scalable. Frictionless. Seriously Profitable.
Retailers carrying a wide range of products face a wide range of shifting demand trends. The factors that influence what shoppers put in their carts – foods and beverages, personal care items, apparel and accessories, hardline products for inside and outside the home – all vary daily and differently across store locations or markets. Planalytics’ predictive demand analytics enable companies to adjust inventories based on when, where, and how much the sales of specific products will increase or decrease due to the weather, the most omnipresent external driver of consumer purchasing.
POWERFUL: With over 40,000 product and service categories analyzed based on trillions of actual consumer purchases, Planalytics combines proven analytical modeling and machine learning/artificial intelligence techniques to quantify demand changes.
SCALABLE: There is no faster or cost-effective way to scale product-specific, localized weather-driven demand metrics across a business. Planalytics is able to develop hundreds, thousands, even tens of thousands of demand models for a business within a few weeks.
FRICTIONLESS: With frictionless integrations into leading solutions from SAP, Blue Yonder, Oracle, and other SaaS and ML/AI solutions, retailers don’t have to wait months or years to operationalize analytics that directly enhance core processes such as planning, allocation, replenishment, marketing, and reporting.
SERIOUSLY PROFITABLE: Retailers that integrate Planalytics’ predictive demand analytics grow profit margins through increased sales (improved availability/fewer out-of-stocks), lower costs (e.g. inventory carrying costs, markdowns, perishable waste/shrink, etc.), and/or more effective use of marketing dollars (e.g. improved ROAS, etc.).
