  • Good morning! We are DemandWise. Our mission is to provide information to retailers, consumer packaged goods manufacturers and industrial parts manufacturers that enables them to understand operational and tactical demand for their products in each of their outlets. We estimate prior demand and forecast daily demand for each SKU in each outlet. Today, I’m going to explore some of the implications of this for your business and your business model.
