Lokad is a start-up that was founded in 2008. We’re a software-creator specialized in the analysis of BtoB data. We help companies (e-stores, distribution chains, aerospace, car parts…) to optimize their stock and their prices. Our algorithms process almost a terabyte of data per day and handle more than a billion dollars of stock each year. We’re profitable, in a period of high-growth – mainly in Europe and Anglo-Saxon countries. Most of our clients are based overseas.
Lokad’s success is based on two technical innovations:
Instead of creating traditional, time-based forecasts (i.e. a predicted value for each future date), Lokad generates probabilistic forecasts: each sales scenario is paired with multiple futures, which allows our optimization algorithms to take into account all possible outcomes.
Each of Lokad’s clients has their own unique way of organizing things, with their own constraints and optimization tools. In order to adapt our solution to each situation, we created our own programming language, Envision, so that we could create a tailored solution for each customer.
