Intelligent Stock Automation (ISA)

Understand and predict customer behavior and demand to drive profitability

About ISA

Our predictive services for merchandise management are the ideal supplement to optimize not only the prices, but also the company’s stock levels. The objective here is a demand-driven and holistic optimization of the flow of merchandise in the company. For the core elements allocation, replenishment and transfers, the highest possible automation of merchandise distribution and management processes becomes achievable.

With the help of our machine learning algorithms, it is possible to determine the optimum order time and the correct quantities better than with conventional calculation methods and to achieve an optimization of the stock for articles that are subsequently supplied.

Calculating the optimal purchase quantity and ideal merchandise distribution for seasonal items reduces misallocations and reduces costs for redistribution and markdowns during the season. But here, too, support is provided by recommending sensible redistributions and alternative sales channels, taking into account price and advertising campaigns.

This sophisticated stock management also generates valuable insights for a more precise planning of the next season:

  • Potentials from undercoverage of merchandise categories, channels, locations or articles
  • Potentials from surplus goods, forecast replenishment limit and forecast transfers of merchandise
  • Optimum order quantity
  • Split of deliveries
