IN-SEASON

The solution for Stock management

The In-Season solution from Analyticalways uses Machine Learning and artificial intelligence to guarantee the utmost efficiency in taking decisions and stock management.

Stock managers (demand planners) know that accurate forecasts are essential to keeping up profitability, avoiding overstocks and stock-outs and satisfying the demand from multichannel customers.

IMPROVE PROFITABILITY

Daily stock optimization suggestions

Our predictive algorithms propose suggestions each day so each store has just the right stock. This gives demand planners full capacity to react in anticipating how demand is evolving at each level of product, channel and point of sale, and thus guarantee that the right level of product is available.

The suggestions take into account trends, seasonality, demand spikes and the estimated impact of promotions.

With In-Season and our consultants you have a strategic path to improving your company's profitability using stock management.

Functionality

Dashboard for managing KPIs

Our KPIs (product mix, turnover, payback, GMROII and potential lost sales from stock-outs) are the most effective ones for assessing operational and financial efficiency. They let you identify where problems are and indicate how to correct them.

Lifecycle prediction per product/store (up to 52 weeks)

In-Season predicts the demand for each product-size-store every week throughout the product lifecycle up to a maximum of 52 weeks so you can manage your inventory well in advance.

Reordering proposal

Our automatic purchase order calculation tells you which products the company's total stock (current + pending) cannot meet demand for during the lifecycle, so you can avoid stock-outs.

Replacement Product Management

Identify the replacement products within a collection and coordinate managing them to prevent lost sales at moments of scarcity.

Cannibalization

Identify the products which cause sales cannibalization: you can include the cannibalization percentage into the demand calculation to avert overstocks.

Detailed automatic calculations of lost sales (products/stores)

In-Season monitors the levels of lost sales and takes this into account in producing the forecast. It also identifies the articles affected by stock shortages so this can be corrected.

In-Season product mix analysis

We monitor how the collection mix behaves over the season and raise alerts about the products causing problems. We show you the optimal levels of assortment per store to avoid overstocks from excess horizontality, telling you the Ideal Horizontality.

Stock-out alerts

The system has functionality to raise an alert when it detects that stock shortages may prompt lost sales over the next few weeks, enabling proactive purchasing decisions.

Store capacity alerts

We monitor the saturation level per store, in accordance with your sales area/volume rules and indicating the best option.

Sell-through alerts (Sellthru)

These alerts flag anomalous behavior in the sell-through comparison for each product in the store compared to the total for the company and its group.

Sales slowdown and speedup alerts

Warning of possible speedups and slowdowns in sales with respect to historical/expected behavior, letting you take action in advance.

Dynamic reports

In-Season lets you create all kinds of dynamic online reports with all the dimensions and expressions used by the tool, to streamline decision-making.

Visual Merchandising management

This includes issues such as defining different VM stock levels and managing the display rules to facilitate control of the brand image.

In-Season introduction proposal for new products

This offers automated calculation of the amount of stock we should bring in for a new product at a given moment of the collection.

Stock balancing proposals (different rules for each model)

This lets you automate this complex operation by identifying the best options to ensure the extinction of toxic stock and fewer lost sales. There are different kinds of transfers: necessity, to avert size stock-outs, or concentration to satisfy the RVM rules.

Promotion management

Identify the products with forthcoming promotions: you can include the expected growth percentage to guarantee correct supply of the goods and take this into account in the future demand to avert overstocks.

Automated prediction-driven restocking proposal for stores

The tool offers automated calculation for replenishment from warehouse to store. It takes into account the forecast levels of demand, based on historical data and trends, added to the different service lead times, the coverages defined, VM criteria and other aspects.

Shortage restocking management

In-Season has an algorithm that helps us to optimize scarce resources, automatically assigning a reception priority based on the projected rate of sales.

Overstock analysis

This enables us to identify and track articles for which the units available exceed real demand over the lifecycle, thus averting medium and long-term overstocks.

Product lifecycle management

This allows the lifecycle for each product to be adjusted to take decisions that maximize profitability.

Variable coverage management

It is possible to define variable coverages driven by business needs for the different product categories and stores. This is how we ensure the proper flow of goods to stores.

Ideal stock proposal for new stores

This sets an initial stock proposal for store openings, which can be modified as determined by the opening period, the mirror stores assigned and the initial coverage values.

Product and store seasonality management

This allows changes to be made to the envisaged seasonality if this is anomalous for some product so that changes in the seasonality curve can be corrected.

Returns management proposal

The tool analyzes the available overstocks at all stores and produces a daily report of the units to be returned to the warehouse to reach ideal stock levels, having counted transfers and the VM rules.
