FICO delivers prescriptive analytic solutions to some of the world’s biggest brands, such as Nestle, to help them increase revenue and reduce costs. For Nestle, FICO’s prescriptive analytic solutions have delivered significant savings by maximizing payload, minimizing transportation costs and by reducing production plant costs. FICO has even
helped Nestle increase sales by reducing the number of product shortages in each distribution.


You may have hundreds or thousands of products, or perhaps just a few. Your margins are razor thin and
your competitors out maneuver you while your IT department reduces its budget. Inventory planning is a roll of the dice, and poor distribution execution leads to empty shelves or aggressive discounts to clear them. Could you improve your
bottom line if you forecasted more accurately?


Now we have a tool, the FICO Forecaster, which will help you pick the winning forecast and act on it by:

  • Taming dozens of forecasting algorithms and make them compete against each other to give more
    accurate answers – all at a click of a button.
  • Leveraging deep and self-supervising neural networks to find the pockets of signal in your
    historical data.
  • Providing a seamless path to inventory optimization, pricing, and markdown. You need integrated
    solutions, n ot disparate initiatives fighting for budget and executive attention.
  • Balance the influence of headquarters and the field when making forecasts and driving
    business decisions.
