Why use AI Inventory demand forecasting
Knowledge of how many products you will need in the inventory is one of the most critical elements for a distribution company.

The forecast can be used to improve company cash flow by decreasing excess inventory levels.
The demand forecasting platform also helps businesses improve supply chain efficiency by forecasting sales and reorder quantities so the company can serve all customers without any delay and without the need to boost marketing campaigns to cover excess stock.
