LEAFIO Inventory Management

Seasonality

Meet every season with optimal inventory and maximum profit

Seasonality – the range changes through seasons, holidays, weekdays and weekends. Automated demand forecasting and auto ordering gives the retailer a competitive benefit – you will be ready for the season in advance and use resources as efficiently as possible.

Leafio seasonality: how it works

Seasonal sales peaks can last from a few days to weeks or months. To successfully enter the season and finish it without write-offs, the ML-based algorithms of LEAFIO allow you to prepare in advance. Considering each seasonality type will help you to quantitatively and qualitatively improve the indicators of each location and the whole chain.

  • Purchasing model synchronized with the calendar

    When preparing for the season, you need to understand when it starts, where the peak of sales is and when it ends clearly. Continuous demand analysis with AI allows you to calculate future demand and be one step ahead to make the most of changes determined by the season, events or other factors.

  • Reserving goods from suppliers in advance in the hot season

    The hot season is equally hot for all chains. And in order to avoid a lack of goods and offer your customers the best assortment at the best price, you must purchase or reserve the goods from the supplier in advance. With Leafio, you don't always have to keep abreast; you can instruct the system to make an order, providing your assortment with everything you need at the right time.

  • Considering the delivery time of imported goods

    The seasonal assortment is often imported, with the duration of deliveries from one to six months. The system’s model builds sales forecasts taking into account all the factors that will affect sales in 3-6 months.

  • Accurately predicted demand for new products in the range

    Predicting the demand for a new product is not an easy task. Leafio will independently build sales forecasts of new products based on the "clustering" model, taking into account the sales experience of analogs or similar products.

  • Effective distribution and delivery of goods from DSs to retail outlets

    Long-term storage of goods at the distribution center is not profitable as they need to be sold during the season. Therefore, our system calculates the most efficient distribution of goods based on sales forecasts for each store in the chain.

Stop managing seasonality based on guesswork. Predict and manage demand and stock with AI.

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
