What is Lokad?

We optimize the thousands of supply chain decisions that your company needs to make every day: How much to purchase? How much to replenish? How much to rebalance from location A to B? How much to liquidate? Lokad optimizes such decisions with advanced probabilistic forecasts that analyze all possible futures against all possible decisions.

Lokad delivers a combination of software+experts. With our software, your company gains access to the most advanced forecasting technology on the market that delivers probabilistic lead time forecasts and probabilistic demand forecasts. Probabilistic forecasts outperform classic forecasts whenever inventory is involved.

And thanks to our experts, your company gains access to expertise and dedication of our Lokad team. We are here to solve your supply chain challenges whatever it takes. Lokad features programmatic capabilities used by our experts in order to take into account all of your supply chain constraints: container shipments, minimum order quantities, shelf space capacity, etc.

ROI and control

For every unit your company holds in stock, should this unit stay where it is today or should it be moved somewhere else? For every unit that your company could purchase or produce, should it be purchased or produced today? Operating your supply chain involves making all those decisions - every day, possibly many times a day, for every single unit of stock, for every single unit that could be in stock.

Excellence in supply chain management requires more than having the right vision and the right teams. Excellence also requires smart optimization of millions of decisions, rather than merely making decisions out of habit or inertia. In addition, the optimization process should take pretty much everything into account for every single decision: all historical data, all ordering or manufacturing constraints, all economic drivers.

Quantitative supply chain is the analysis of all possible futures against all possible decisions, and making the best possible decisions based on their ROI (return on investment). The whole process requires full robotization so that it can be operated at any scale. Quantitative supply chain gives back the control of the supply chain to management by freeing up the company’s teams from mundane clerical tasks.

Import data from many data sources

Import your data and get started

In order to deliver meaningful results, Lokad typically starts its work with three different datasets: (1) your list of products (2) your sales history and (3) your purchase order history. Then, to refine the results even further, we can include any additional relevant data: stock-out history, promotional history, competitors prices, etc.

Lokad offers data connectors for many popular apps. If your app is supported by Lokad, you can import all the relevant data into your Lokad account in just a few clicks.

Otherwise, you can also import your flat files (CSV, TSV, Excel) into Lokad. Files can be uploaded through the web or through protocols such as FTP, SFTP, FTPS. In fact, Lokad is able to handle very large quantities of files in various formats. We can even scale up to extremely large retail networks if needed.

If you wish to proceed by importing your files into Lokad, just get in touch with the Lokad team, and we will provide you with the necessary technical guidance to help you extract the right data in the correct format.
