ROSEMONT, ILLINOIS 09/28/2020US Foods, a $25B foodservice distributor serving approximately 300,000 restaurants and foodservice operators, recently completed the initial phase of the company’s journey into advanced demand analytics.
Early in 2020, the company embarked on a project to develop an open source demand forecasting system that would help them drastically improve their forecast accuracy. However, despite an existing tenured and skilled team of analysts and data scientists, they quickly realized such a major initiative required deeper analytics proficiency than the company possessed internally.
ATLANTA, GEORGIA 09/14/2020The Parker Avery Group has revolutionized traditional demand analytics with the company’s proprietary demand forecasting platform. As the heart of Parker Avery’s Tailored Intelligence analytics offerings, the platform can be deployed in a “results as a service” manner, leveraging the firm's considerable analytics and business process competencies.
Chief Analytics Officer, Sam Iosevich and his team of data scientists have successfully deployed the analytics service in several major consumer brands with overwhelmingly positive results—and in considerably shorter timeframes than typical analytics solution implementations.
ATLANTA, GEORGIA 09/01/2020Atlanta-based retail and consumer goods consulting firm, The Parker Avery Group, announces the promotion of Amanda Astrologo to Partner.
