Key Features of ROIvolution

Sales cycle prediction up to 52 weeks

ROIvolution can project demand for each product-size-store combination on a weekly basis for up to a year. This feature allows retailers to manage stock proactively, reducing the risk of overstock and stockouts while ensuring that popular items are always available.

Efficient new product introduction

Introducing new products to the market can be challenging. Traditional methods rely heavily on historical averages and often fail to account for changes in demand or seasonality. ROIvolution uses a detailed, automated calculation based on product category behavior and price, optimizing the quantity of new stock to introduce at the right time.

Overstock analysis and management

Overstock can tie up capital and increase storage costs. ROIvolution’s predictive AI analyzes current and future demand to identify overstock issues early, providing actionable insights to avoid unnecessary discounts and improve inventory turnover.

Variable coverage management

Traditional fixed coverage strategies do not account for the unique turnover rates of different products. However, ROIvolution implements variable coverage, adapting stock levels to actual product rotation, enhancing stock efficiency and reducing excess inventory.

Stockout alerts with ROIvolution’s predictive AI

ROIvolution features an alert system that detects potential stockouts weeks in advance. This proactive approach allows retailers to make informed purchasing decisions, preventing sales losses and maintaining customer satisfaction.

Enhancing Visual Merchandising with predictive AI

The role of visual merchandising in driving sales cannot be underestimated because it is crucial for attracting and retaining customers. ROIvolution integrates merchandising rules and visual parameters into its stock management processes, ensuring that product displays are optimized for maximum appeal and sales potential.

This integration helps maintain a consistent brand image and improves the overall shopping experience. However, many retailers do not fully utilize these tools due to a lack of knowledge or resources. With ROIvolution, retailers can overcome these challenges and maximize their sales opportunities.

Preparing the Sales Team

In addition to technological tools, ROIvolution recognizes the invaluable role of the sales team. By providing sales staff with data-driven insights and predictive analytics, retailers can empower their employees to make informed decisions, enhancing their sensitivity and responsiveness to business needs.
