About Company

In a landscape where e-commerce brands are diversifying across multiple channels earlier than ever, and with Amazon imposing a low inventory level fee starting in April, the pressure and complexity of inventory planning is higher than ever before.

Poor inventory planning can lead to the arch-enemy of operations: Out-of-stock situations.

These scenarios result in lost revenue for brands, decreased revenue for fulfillment providers, and dissatisfaction among customers. In essence, everyone loses.

This is where Spherecast comes into play: A solution designed to eliminate out-of-stock situations, unlocking value for e-commerce brands worldwide and scaling through fulfillment providers.

We assist brands in creating the ideal demand plan, purchase order plan, and in precisely projecting their cash flows. Powered by machine learning and non-linear optimization techniques.
