Basic Information

Fountain9 is a platform that helps food brands and retailers reduce food wastage and maintain high availability by predicting their future inventory needs. They aim to predict future inventory imbalances which lead to out-of-stock situations or wastage and also recommend ways of minimising their impact. Their demand sensing and pricing engine take into account several factors like historical sales trends, seasonality, holidays, markdown events and pricing changes to predict future inventory requirements and optimize prices. Predicted inventory demand is also aligned with supply-side data to identify ideal suppliers and replenishment quantities that minimize chances of stock-outs or inventory wastage. See more
