Driving Sales & Performance with Weather Analytics 

Planalytics helps businesses “put a number” on the weather’s impacts by providing visibility into exactly when, where, and how much the conditions outside will affect sales for specific products and services. With these insights, companies are able to DRIVE SALES & MARKET SHARE by having product available when the customer wants it, IMPROVE MARGINS by more optimally deploying inventory (e.g. reduced markdowns, lower shrink, etc.). and INCREASE WORKING CAPITAL (e.g. trimming total inventory, reducing days of supply, etc.).

Learn more by attending our complimentary breakfast briefing.  Topics include:

  • A look at how weather volatility affects companies from the need to adjust for near-term, trading season sales fluctuations to the distortions and increased error it adds to planning processes.
  • An introduction to Weather-Driven Demand, a measurement derived on a detailed, multi-year analyses of sales data and the corresponding weather data (by time period, product/service, and location), and how companies use it to better evaluate results (like-for-like sales, promotional performance, etc.) and to better position the business to take advantage of climate-related opportunities.
  • Use case examples that demonstrate how the analytics are utilised for reporting and analysis, planning, demand forecasting, replenishment, marketing/advertising, etc.
