We predicted store replenishment quantities for each item sold across the retailer expanse using a combination of internal shipping data, point of sales, inventory and invoice inputs at the retailer level. We did this by:

                      • First, determining product level seasonality and underlying daily sales variations
                      • This information was used to forecast expected future sales
                      • Multiple forecasting techniques using time series trends, in combination with store and product related factors were considered
                      • Relevant constraints were applied to forecast quantities such as the minimum order quantity required for a replenishment trip to a store, the total capacity of a store, and the threshold below which an inventory replenishment will be required

                      KEY BENEFITS

                      • Our solution provided an intuitive interface for over 500 users, with reports on sales performance and sell-in recommendations
