"Virtually all of Amazon's POs misalign with consumer ordering patterns."
Youval Peltier (IDERIVE CEO)
Are your consumer orders more lumpy or more smooth? More intermittent or erratic? Regardless of your ASIN demand profile, iDerive can show you how to overcome forecasting complexities with its proprietary modeling. Optimizing inventory allocation and fulfillment has never been more effortless.
Identifying and Mastering your Order Patterns:
Customer ordering patterns on Amazon can vary significantly, and they are often categorized into different types based on their characteristics. These patterns play a crucial role in determining inventory management and forecasting strategies for Vendors. Here are the main four:
Smooth Ordering Pattern: Consistent orders at a steady rate over time. The demand for products remains relatively stable, making it easier for Vendors to forecast and plan their inventory.
Intermittent Ordering Pattern: Characterized by sporadic or irregular orders. There may be periods of low or no demand, followed by sudden spikes in orders. This pattern is common for seasonal products or items with occasional popularity.
Lumpy Ordering Pattern: A lumpy ordering pattern is characterized by irregularly large orders or bulk purchases by customers. This pattern is often seen when customers take advantage of discounts, promotions, or sales events. Lumpy demand can pose challenges in inventory planning, as Vendors must be prepared to fulfill large orders without causing stock-outs for other customers.
Erratic Ordering Pattern: Unpredictable and inconsistent. Customers place orders with no clear pattern or logic, making it difficult for Vendors to forecast demand accurately. Erratic demand is commonly seen in niche or trend-driven products.
In reality, customer ordering patterns are usually mix of the above types.
Understanding and analyzing customer ordering patterns are essential for e-commerce brands to optimize their inventory levels, reduce stock-outs, and enhance customer satisfaction. Advanced analytics tools and forecasting models, offered by iDerive, can help Vendors navigate the complexities of these patterns and make data-driven decisions to improve their overall performance.
