Demand Management

See what’s coming, keep products in stock, and shape demand to meet growth goals

Forecast accuracy and demand variability remain a top challenge for companies.  In an uncertain world, decision making should be made with confidence and guided by data to point you in the right direction.  However – not all data is forecastable. John Galt brings forecasting expertise to the market and lets you easily apply science to your forecast.  Respond and react faster to changing consumer demand by including consumption data and easily translate demand into supply strategies.

How do you level up your demand plan?

  • Start by modeling your base demand, understand forecastability of data, and learn how to deploy traditional time-series forecast models. We have trained thousands of planners to help them understand how the different models and statistical results can help improve their planning. Seamlessly collaborate with sales, marketing and other areas.
  • Evolve by optimizing and expanding the models used including lifecycle, launch, attribute-based, regression and more. Understand where the demand is by segmenting promotion, event and base demand layers.  Go beyond basic hierarchies and model across different time levels and product, geography, customer and product levels while understanding which provide forecast-value. Gain visibility beyond your network and use prescriptive recommendations to take action.  Expand collaboration up and down the supply chain and enhance the quality of the forecast by accepting or rejecting inputs.
  • Accelerate your process to automate and optimize the forecast with machine leaning that predicts changes in demand by bringing in external demand signals like POS, IoT, weather, etc. Then shape the demand by modeling operational and financial implications to maximize profitability, reduce risk and boost customer service. John Galt is battle-tested with hundreds of machine learning deployments to support promotions, cannibalization, seasonality and more.
  • Transform your process by bringing in millions of data points across an extended supply chain ecosystem to further automate your processes and get automated insights into demand drivers.

Hundreds of global brands trust Atlas to deliver results and improve their processes.  At John Galt we are practitioners, teachers and innovators and combine math and science to real world problems.  As a forecasting pioneer, we combine our heritage with our team of battle tested experts to bring forecasting expertise to the market.
