Who we are
Nicolas and I grew up in France and Belgium respectively. We met at Satalia where he led the development of machine learning solutions and I headed our bespoke builds. We worked on a couple of projects together and bonded immediately. Well that’s not true. At the time, France just beat Belgium 1-0 at the world cup so things were tense!
What led to this
Over the past few years, Nico and I have had the chance to develop AI, supply-chain, and retail expertise. We built bespoke systems for some of the world's largest enterprises and understood how powerful yet expensive, complex, and difficult to implement these solutions are. We also realised that while the big players of the industry were benefiting from the efficiency of our technology, small-to-mid-sized businesses that are fighting to catch up were missing out. Needless to say, we weren't comfortable with this idea and decided to support them.
Problems we solve
As brands get started, they pour efforts into product design, digital marketing, and customer service. But once they find their product market fit and scale their business, they start having back office challenges and are often not properly equipped to face them.
By discussing with online brands we understood they use Excel as their default inventory planner, and that when their business scales, their spreadsheets don’t. Forecasting demand quickly becomes time-consuming and inaccurate, leading brands to face stockouts and excess inventory which impacts their profitability. No smart, flexible, and fast way existed to optimise inventory. Well… Hello, World!
