We analyze product data (shipping quantity and POS) and weather data to help you manufacture, ship and sell the right amount at the right time. 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 products by comparing sales amount against weather data to identify products that are related to the weather.

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.

case03Forecasting demand

Challenge:“I want to predict how much quantity I can sell.”

We will perform analysis by matching the detailed product data such as POS, shipment volume, price and inventory, against weather data.
It is possible to forecast specific quantities and sales amounts.

case04Factor analysis

Challenge:“I want to understand the factors that affected sales in the past.”

We analyze past sales factors from the perspective of weather and economic factors to see which factors are critical. Objectively visualizing which factors have previously influenced sales will lead to more effective measures for the future.
