AI-POWERED DEMAND PLANNING

Demand planning optimisation is achieved through accuracy and automation

We understand that demand planning and supply chain optimisation cannot be obtained without accurate demand forecasting. We pioneer innovation and development in forecast technology and lead the field when it comes to forecast accuracy, allowing our customers to see future demand with more clarity than ever deemed possible. 

Automated AI-powered Demand Forecasting

Demand planning and supply chain optimisation depends on the accuracy of the demand forecast. It’s a bottom-up approach, where decisions about procurement and inventory levels, replenishment and assortment selection, production planning, distribution and warehousing, all depend on expected demand. 

Sumo Analytics pioneers AI-powered forecast technology and delivers unprecedented levels of accuracy - the bedrock of demand planning optimisation - generating hyper-granular demand forecasts, scaling to millions of items across multiple categories. 

Our Cold Start technology generates forecasts for new products with no sales history whatsoever, with short history, or eroded historical data due to external shocks, allowing for streamlined sales and superior operations planning under uncertainty.
