BBU distributes products that are perishable in nature and shoppers expect items to be fresh when purchased. Additionally, many goods are considered substitutable, potentially leading to lost revenue due to out-of-stock items. BBU turned to antuit.ai's AI-powered demand forecasting to improve order accuracy and help reduce waste due to overstocking. BBU also sought to modernize its outdated operations and equip its associates with the right tools to help ensure the highest quality of product.
