Our teams of consultants and project managers explore different aspects of your organisation to provide you with an in-depth study of your business and technical issues. Supported by researchers and data scientists from our research and development team, they analyse your information and adapt our mathematical models to best fit your activities and your business challenges.

A four-step approach:

  • Analysis of the landscape
  • Data recovery
  • Report and recommendations
  • Potential creation of proof of concept

Example case studies:

Case study 1: Stock level analysis

Vekia worked with a specialist cultural assets distributor to estimate the cost of overstocking.

  • Analysis of how stock is replenished at the point of sale
  • Analysis of sales and stock information and of Vekia sales forecasts
  • Estimation of potential profit: a 40% reduction in stock
  • Redesign in line with the recommendations of our reports

Following this study, the distributor asked Vekia to launch a second phase, extending the scope of the project.

Case study 2: Analysis of sales projections

Vekia worked with a specialist top of the range fashion retailer to test the quality of Vekia forecasts.

  • Analysis of the last 3 years’ sales
  • Calculation of forecasts for a defined period and comparison of this with the actual figures

The results of this study convinced the client to work with Vekia to equip its supply chain management team with the right tools.
