Intuendi uses machine learning and AI to automate and customize demand forecasting for each business. During onboarding, any unique factors to your market or industry can be added to help the system make more accurate predictions.
Intuendi offers several different types of forecasting as well, to best fit each business. The two main options are top-down and bottom-up, yet the exact option depends on what works best for you. From there, users can further customize how data is prioritized in forecasting.
This customization allows businesses to better monitor stock levels and quickly detect under/overstock risks. When those situations seem likely to occur, users can allow the Intuendi AI to suggest just how much stock needs to be ordered, when the order needs to be made, and from which supplier to get the fastest results or best prices.
Inteundi also offers inventory management tools to better inform demand forecasting based on stock levels and other factors. One particularly cool feature offered by Intuendi is the ability to forecast for new products based on data from existing products. Specifically, this is great when launching a new product which doesn’t yet have any sales history. The system can find products which share similar characteristics, such as color or style, and use that information to generate a forecast.
Another unique feature of Intuendi’s AI appears when making purchase orders: order management system makes it possible to see a container’s estimated space in real-time.
Automation features make suggested orders based on supplier constraints, like a predetermined minimum order quantity. Requiring approval can prevent overstock situations by allowing users to double-check what is being ordered and in what quantities.
Want to understand why the AI suggested the quantities or dates that it did? There’s a pop-out tile which will show the reasoning. Of course, users can also make their own purchase orders the traditional way as well - though still informed by the data Intuendi has on each product.
After using Intuendi, a few extra features would have been nice:
|Starting at approximately $1,600/month (€1,500/month)
|Designed for retailers, eCommerce, manufacturers, and more. Features include:
Intuendi has a monthly subscription based pricing model which is based on the exact feature set your business needs. However, $1,600 seems to be the minimum price a company would pay. Adding more than five users can increase the cost, as this adds variables to the AI algorithms. The cloud-based software is accessible from any web browser.
