Smart Factory / Sales forecasting
Sales forecasting is an integral part of business and is no longer considered a luxury but a necessity with increasing demand. Forecasting can help managers deal with seasonality, holiday, a sudden shift in demand, and etc. It can be used to plan resources in response to expected demand, and project future budgets. Most companies are applying a single rule-based sales forecasting model to all of their products, resulting in low forecast accuracy that fails to meet demands. Poor sales demand forecasting can have a significant negative impact on resource allocation, cash flow, and growth planning.
JACC-Sales Forecasting analyzes and categorizes products by products’ features, sales' records, customer segmentation, seasonality, etc., and develops different AI predictive models for different product categories or products dynamically to meet sales demand. Thus, JACC-Sales Forecasting enables companies to make better business decisions and planning with a good estimation of the sales demand.
