Between the pandemic, global conflict, and persistent supply chain disruptions, the future is getting harder to predict for businesses. As a top seller in retail stores such as Best Buy and Target — on top of their impressive ecommerce sales — the innovative consumer electronics brand Tile developed a set of strategies to become a more dynamic and successful company amid this uncertainty.

This is your chance to learn the secrets of Tile’s success — a brand with more than 40M Tiles sold worldwide, and a thriving community of users spanning 195 countries. Watch this educational webinar on-demand, featuring a discussion between CJ Prober, CEO of Tile, and Joel Beal, Alloy’s CEO on how Tile uses data in Alloy to plan in a smarter, more dynamic way, and execute those plans with greater precision. The two CEOs explore how Tile is:

  • Identifying demand patterns: Tile quickly learned that forecasting based on historical data wasn’t a great indicator of future performance. Learn how they analyze real-time POS data across different retailers to keep their finger on the pulse of consumer demand.
  • Finding insights into why demand looks the way it does: Knowing what is happening with your demand is important, but knowing why is better. Why is sell-through up in one retailer and down in another? Prober will explain how the Tile team is able to drill into individual store performance to unlock insights.
  • Becoming more dynamic by connecting consumer demand to their supply plans: Once Tile understands what their demand pattern looks like, they need to ensure their supply plans are based on that demand signal — and adjusted accordingly as things change.
