04-21-2007, 06:52 AM
Get daily / weekly / monthly sales forecasts for all your osCommerce products.

If you keep too much inventory, your expenses go up. But if you reduce too much, you have nothing to sell. Sales forecasting is a key of eCommerce profitability.

The delivered forecasts are purely statistical and rely on the collaborative forecasting technology of Lokad. This technology enhances the forecast accuracy even if the amount of input data is low.
