Project story

Machine learning expedites retail inventory

A nationwide discount retailer was struggling to maintain inventory accuracy and manage shrinkage across hundreds of retail locations. With infrequent physical inventory counts, a lack of shipment and unique SKU tracking, and unpredictable shrinkage due to product damage and theft, the company was unable to accurately manage inventory at the individual store level. Having recognized the need to adopt an advanced digital solution to mitigate their inventory issues, they turned to Blueprint for help.

Blueprint created machine learning models that performed on par with historical models at predicting perpetual inventory in addition to a very accurate sales-forecasting model. These models enabled the client to see a virtual inventory count at any time for any given store, reduce unnecessary spend and better manage inventory and shrinkage. In addition, decision-makers were able to comfortably commit to further digital transformation.
