Optimize supply with intelligent stock automation
Struggling with out-of-stock situations
and excess inventory?
You’re not alone. Many retailers know the feeling: in one store a product is selling off like hot cakes and in another it’s sitting idle, taking up valuable shelf space. Demand fluctuates over time, and between locations and sales channels, leaving retailers with disappointed customers and missed sales opportunities. Whether new, seasonal or NOS, it’s vital that your merchandise is always exactly where you need it. Precise real-time forecasts are key for the accurate allocation and replenishment of merchandise.
Demand-driven stock management
aifora’s solutions for intelligent stock automation ensure that you always have the right merchandise at the right place at the right time, by optimizing the distribution of merchandise. Retailers receive accurate order proposals based on current consumer demand, inventory levels, promotions and events – taking into account individual supplier lead times as well as unique business rules and strategies. As a result, you’ll reduce lost sales from out-of-stocks and minimize waste from over-stocks.
All stock management processes on one platform
