Demand forecasting & inventory optimization

4.67/5 (3 reviews)

SkuBrain overview

SkuBrain is a cloud-based demand forecasting and inventory optimization software which uses sales history data to predict future demand and generates recommendations based on current stock levels to allow users to plan their purchasing and manage promotions for any overstocked products. The system is designed for small and mid-size retailers, distributors, and suppliers.

SkuBrain compares more than 30 forecasting algorithms in a tournament to identify the model which most accurately predicts sales trends for the historic sales data, and automatically selects the optimal algorithm to create each forecast. Seasonal patterns and individual product trends, such as year-on-year logarithmic sales increases, are automatically detected by the algorithms. Any data in CSV format can be imported and used to create forecasts, and eCommerce integrations with Shopify, Brightpearl, and Vend allow for automatic data sync and real-time reporting on forecasts vs actual performance. Users can also manually adjust forecasts by brand, region, or product to account for upcoming changes, such as promotions or product discontinuations.

The replenishment plans which are automatically produced by SkuBrain can be used to generate purchase orders. Users can specify the lead times for each of their suppliers, and define multiple replenishment policies with custom service levels and overstock warning thresholds. SkuBrain can be accessed on any device, and users can collaborate in real time on demand forecasting and inventory planning, and share analysis reports with shareholders.

We have been working with SkuBrain for over a year and continue to be impressed. Most forecasting tools are far too expensive for small beverage manufacturers, SkuBrain offers the right set of functionality at a reasonable cost. The learning algorithms help breweries optimize projected production, and can to easily push or pull data through live integrations or a .CSV files. By connecting complimentary systems and sources such as VIP users can automatically import historical depletion and streamline data review without having to save multiple versions through an import export process. SkuBrain is an easy to use tool that we highly recommend to all our clients and friends throughout the craft beer community.Easy to use, responsive team and customer service.

I just compared our high and low forecast for Gaelic that we did and the SKU Brain forecast was right in the middle. So I feel very comfortable with the data it's giving. Plus those forecasts took a couple people many hours, and SKU brain took me 5 minutes.
