Forecasting: the Future of Retail

At some point in our lives, everyone has wished for the ability to predict the future. Whilst, unfortunately(!), our skills can’t extend to your personal life and important questions such as the finale of Game of Thrones, the ability to predict your organisation’s future doesn’t have to be a far-fetched dream.

 Wait, I don’t have the in-house resources to support forecasting

To remain competitive in today’s marketplace, guesswork and estimations are no longer enough. There’s a careful balance to ensure you’re always ready to meet demand whilst reducing business overheads. Remember, customers are fickle. Whilst you may think yours are loyal, if they’re faced with an out-of-stock product on your website which is still available from a competitor, you can bet they’ll drop you like a hot potato. And once you’ve lost them for that purchase, can you be confident they’ll come back?

How else can data science support my business?

It’s so easy to get yourselves set up with better forecasting thanks to Amadeus. If used and responded to effectively, you can be confident in the following:

  • Optimised stock levels to avoid wastage whilst continuing to meet demand

  • Easy prediction of how many customers are at risk of leaving your business

  • Prediction of sales growth to allow you to proactively respond to future demand.
