Demand Planning and Forecasting

GAINS Demand Planning & Forecasting Software: Drive better outcomes with AI-driven demand forecasts.

Stay ahead of dynamic shifts in demand with advanced demand planning and forecasting that recognizes patterns, senses change, and applies machine learning to recommend an optimal plan.

A leap forward for forecasting demand.

Right-size your inventory.
Free up working capital by carrying the optimal amount of
inventory required to meet customer demand. Gain insight into potentially millions of SKUs and recognize the right time to restock, redistribute, or reprice items.
Model, analyze, and simulate to anticipate issues.
Create advanced simulations that reveal the impact of promotions, historical demand, interest rates, seasonal cycles, and competitor performance. Apply sophisticated algorithms and machine learning to aid in selecting the most plausible model. Reduce latency in decisions that spike inventory costs or diminish service levels.
Automate routine planning activities.
Keep planners out of the weeds. GAINS automatically detects exceptions, anomalies, and outliers caused by promotions, seasonality, and more. Spend less time buried in data and manually identifying exceptions — more time making crucial decisions that address overspending and underperforming areas.
