Demand Forecasting

Accurately forecast demand beyond seasonal trends so you can plan production, lower inventory costs, and maximize profits.

Improve planning and boost your bottom line

If you’re relying solely on historical data to forecast demand, you may not be seeing the whole picture. Identifying patterns from previous years can be helpful, but it doesn’t account for outside factors like changing consumer preferences or the market entry of new competitors.

Without accounting for those externalities, you run the risk of underproducing (harming customer relationships), overproducing (incurring excess costs), or simply being operationally inefficient. Here’s how RapidMiner helps you fill in the gaps.

Get the full picture

Build models that account for more than just historical trends to get a complete view of market demand.

Optimize production, inventory & supply chain

Use your more comprehensive forecast to plan how much product you’ll need to make and store.

Boost profits

Avoid over or underproduction and leave behind the brand damage and inventory costs that come with them.
