Product demand forecasting service for the apparel industry

We analyze product data and weather data to provide insight into the relationship between temperature and timing for optimal sales per item.
It’s possible to forecast the demand for a specific item. First, tell us about your challenges.

case01Analyzing the relationship between weather and products (weather sensitivity survey)

Challenge:“First I need to know which products are weather-related.”

We analyze the sales data of multiple products versus weather data to visualize the relationship with weather, by timing and area.

Sells more in hot weather
Not affected by temperature
Sells more in cold weather

Use it to roughly understand the relationship between multiple items and the weather.

case02Visualizing the peak period

Challenge:“I need to know when a product will start to sell, peak, and taper off.”

We will summarize the timing of the product's “beginning of sales,” “peak” and “end of sales” cycle, as well as the benchmark temperature that triggers buying behavior, by area.

Leverage it for marketing and promotion purposes.
