Dashboard

As well, our software development team has introduced predictive analytics capabilities. These include customer demand forecasting based on historical sales data. The system provides replenishment suggestions, allowing the customer to resupply on time without excess inventory.

Using Machine Learning algorithms for data analysis, the system first generates a general forecast of the required quantity of each item for a certain period. This forecast is then filtered by specified parameters, such as the minimum required amount of goods in stock, the delivery period for receiving goods from suppliers, minimum delivery quantity, etc.

After filtration, the system provides replenishment recommendations based on current warehouse and supplier capabilities. These recommendations can be automatically applied, generating purchase orders based on a predetermined schedule. Alternatively, managers can manually generate orders using the specific recommendations provided.

Challenges

During the development process, the HQSoftware team faced several challenges.

Exploring a legacy solution. As our client had a legacy system that needed modernization and transition to new technologies, our team had to understand how the system worked.

The challenge came from the fact that the team was very short on technical documentation, so we had to figure out the solution ourselves. Despite this, we were able to successfully upgrade the WMS, improving its performance by up to 40%.

Data processing. Our team needed to choose suitable Machine Learning models that would provide accurate predictive analytics outcomes and could be flexible enough to analyze new data, such as ongoing sales.

It was also important to ensure seamless data processing with a constant stream of incoming data. Our goal was to create a solution that could not only handle the current volume of data seamlessly but also sustain future growth in the database. Therefore, we designed a scalable architecture that can maintain high performance as the business expands.

By successfully overcoming these challenges, we were able to provide our customer with a high-quality, scalable solution with bug-free performance.
