Prevedere Demand Planning for CPG/Retail
Discover the hidden drivers of consumer demand by category, product, and region
While marketing, promotions, and price changes affect future sales, consumer behavior is also driven by numerous external factors. Wages, cost of fuel, sentiment, and online search trends can impact the consumer’s willingness to buy, but are factors beyond a company’s control. Nonetheless, they can be analyzed and included in your research plan.
