Seasonality and trends

The system can automatically identify the seasonal progress on the basis of which it adequately adjusts the ordering process over the course of the entire year. In the event of missing historical data for one of the articles or outlets/warehouses, the system can search for data from a different outlet or the relevant article group.

This also applies to recognizing trends where, for instance, the system gradually increases the orders on the basis of a growing trend.

Removing lost sales and extremities

Upon processing the supporting data for accurate forecast, the system automatically eliminates extreme values. When, for instance, there is a historical sale involving extreme values which, however, is only an isolated occurrence, the system eliminates such transaction from the forecast calculation, thus preventing an unnecessary increase in the stock amounts required.

On the contrary, where the historical sales data is missing potential transactions caused by insufficient stock, the system calculates what the sales would have been at that time, had the stock been of a sufficient quantity. Therefore, the sales forecast for calculating the optimal orders will not be underestimated.
