Lokad's approach really fits Maxicoffee’s innovation strategy. Through the analysis of our data with Lokad’s algorithms, we were able to set up operational and strategic KPIs to gain better insight on how to cover demand for our customers, all the while staying aligned with our Supply Chain constraints and applying a policy of stock reduction. A top-line Supply Chain Scientist accompanied our in-house team to help them build up their skills. Thus, they were able to dedicate more time to focusing on the deep understanding and optimization of strategical inbound decisions instead of getting swamped in operational issues. Lastly, Lokad's specific forecasting methods allowed us to correct and re-orient our e-commerce policy with a high degree of accuracy.

3 Sprouts using inventory optimization software
3 Sprouts was created by three friends who share a love of babies and an appreciation for unique and modern products. Having worked in design in New York and Toronto for such high profile companies such as Kate Spade, Barneys New York and Holt Renfrew, they were inspired to create a collection that appealed to both parents and children.

We needed a solution at 3 Sprouts that would help us manage our inventory as we grew rapidly. Lokad helped us forecast inventory for all markets and created a system that generates purchase orders for our various warehouses. Lokad took a daunting process and made it simple and more accurate.

Before, we were flying without instruments, and now, we are navigating with precision. One more thing that you likely won't find with another vendor: you are free and self-sufficient.

The mordern man using inventory optimization software
The Modern Man is an Ecommerce based in the UK that provides a comprehensive selection of male grooming products for skincare, haircare and whole body care, with formulas created from some of the best-known and most-loved brands, as well as alternative ranges that provide something a little different.

Within a few hours, I have been able to import the reorder levels from Lokad into my ordering system and generate the first wave of orders to the suppliers. I feel much more relieved that a sensible system is looking after my stock levels now, rather than me just guessing. By the way, I run this company by myself, so the smallest company using Lokad now is just 1 person!

Oscaro using inventory optimization software
Oscaro is the largest Auto Parts eCommerce in Europe. It has achieved this position by offering the lowest prices on an extremely wide range of items, while at the same time providing extended customer support. It carries over 300,000 different product references, and has the ambition to expand this catalog up to a million references in the future.

Our business has been doubling every year. Great customer service is one of the keys to our success. But maintaining outstanding customer service while undergoing such growth is becoming a challenge and it requires the best demand forecasting that the market can offer. Classical solutions require too much manpower and don't scale well over hundreds of thousands of products. Lokad and Windows Azure were exactly the solution my business needed.

Pierre-Noël Luiggi, CEO of Oscaro,

Kira Vans is using Lokad for inventory optimization
2005. Two brothers. One used camper van for hire. All well and good until they realised just how difficult it was to source decent conversion parts quickly and easily. And so began the mission to simplify, de-mystify and reduce the cost of building a camper van.

As an importer & online retailer we are always under pressure to balance stock holding, availability of products for sale, and variable lead times. Before Lokad we had long periods out of stock on key products, despite spending a huge amount of time on forecasting and planning our order cycles. Since we implemented Lokad a year ago we are now holding 10% less stock while increasing our sales by 40%, and it is taking dramatically less time to manage our buying processes. Stock outs are now dramatically reduced so we are very happy Lokad clients.

Robert McCandless, Owner at Kira Vans,
