Fresh inventory algorithm

Strike a balance between availability and lack of write-offs.
The LEAFIO Fresh inventory solution takes into account high variability, irregular demand throughout the week, expiration dates, and supplier delivery slots throughout the day. You can make your inventory management and margins of different categories of fresh goods in a “lean” and accurate way.

LEAFIO Fresh inventory management: How it works

We have developed an algorithm that takes into account all these specifics and has been tested by dozens of retailers who successfully achieve the goals of fresh categories in their companies.

  • Remaining shelf life

    Taking into account the remaining shelf life – the actual shelf life of the product after it hits the store shelf

  • LIFO batch accounting

    The most accurate calculation of the order, due to implemented simplified analogue of batch accounting by LIFO

  • Across the week demand coefficient 

    Taking into account fluctuations in demand by day of the week, which is critical for products in this category due to frequent deliveries and limited shelf life.

  • Delivery slots

    Taking into account the goods delivery slots (the range of time for delivery of goods during the day), which makes it possible for you to make a more precise forecast.

  • Level of needed availability

    You can set the acceptable level of availability for each product in order to avoid write-offs. This makes it possible for you to balance the inventory through avoiding write-offs and maintaining availability.

  • Other factors

    Taking into account all the basic factors: demand forecast, lead time, packaging ratio, supplier restrictions, demand variability, reserve inventory and the necessary display.

Customers note a decrease in write-offs, improved availability and a sharp increase in the transparency of managing inventory in this category.

During the year, we opened 23 new stores that were connected to the LEAFIO system. When we switched to centralized ordering, our surplus was decreased. We reduced the amount of time we spent on managing inventory in stores. The program does not work on forecasting but is based on demand. Because of this, we are managing inventory and product availability incredibly well, which is very important to the customer
