The Source & Blue Yonder
Blue Yonder recently completed an implementation of its SaaS-based demand planning solution for Canadian tech retailer The Source. Consumer electronics retailers offer a range of products in-stores and online, including low frequency electronics, such as TVs; hot, in-demand offerings, such as video game consoles; and fast-moving conveniences, such as chargers. As a result, forecasting demand for this range of product is often challenging. With Blue Yonder’s artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) capabilities, The Source can use data-driven forecasting to better plan for current and future demand of these products.
