  • Understand the past, present and future by flexibly analyzing your data at any time interval, modeling different fiscal calendars, granularities, forecast versions and more

Prediction

More accurate forecast available

Machine learning algorithms keep you ahead of supply-demand imbalances

  • Predict outages or overstocks with forward-looking metrics like Future Weeks of Supply for every item-location combination in your network
