Predict demand by product, category, and location
Our advanced economic and modeling engine allows companies to determine how store sales would be effected by external factors (economic, environmental or consumer behavior) without the influence of promotions or pricing changes. This will give your team a solid baseline to assess marketing effectiveness.
After creating a forecast using the most predictive external factors, Prevedere allows you to test various scenarios before committing to any plan. Changes in pricing, distribution of product, entering/exiting a market, even staffing changes can all be included to see how your sales forecast changes.
