  • ICS auto-selects the best-fit forecasting algorithm by choosing from 8 options through the application of a multi-algorithm tournament method.

  • By default ICS forecasts expected sales, purchases, inventory positions at all locations and resulting cash commitments 24 months into the future.

  • Forecasts can easily be enriched with market knowledge or other human input.

  • Facilitates forecasting of new product introductions, newly established or suspended network locations.

  • Stocking towards forecast as opposed  to stocking to history increases reactiveness of inventory investments to changing market conditions drastically.

Enrich forecasts by adding Events for known future demand.

  • Events are automatically added to the demand forecast.

  • Replenishment recommendations are auto-adjusted.

  • When plans change or events are delayed rescheduling can be done with a click and forecast and replenishment recommendations are instantly updated.

  • Event planning does not add to historical demand (transactional history), protecting against unnecessary stock build-ups for known demand.

  • Events Planning can be automated.

  • ICS can identify parts classifying for event planning.
