DIFF: The Distributed Inventory Flow Forecasting Model

DIFF

A unique value-added technology available to interested MonarchFx Sellers is a Distributed Inventory Flow Forecasting model, referred to as DIFF.

This model customizes for the individual Seller:

  • An initial allocation of inventories (at SKU levels) to the MonarchFx Fulfillment Center(s) in order to get started.
  • An ongoing demand forecasting model that is based on state-of-the-art forecasting algorithms, with user inputs on promos, flash sales, new products, sales lifts, etc.
  • Replenishment signals for the Seller when SKUs reach thresholds and need to be replenished. This optimizes Seller inventories carried in MonarchFx fulfillment centers.

The DIFF analytical model is provided as an Advisory Service for the Seller. Upon Seller interests, MonarchFx provides the Advisory Service during the initial 90 days of start-up operations. If the Seller decides to continue, arrangements are made for its ongoing use.
