What's the latest in optimization? How can I build and deploy advanced analytics solutions faster?

We would like to invite you to the FICO Optimization Innovation Day on Tuesday, February 27 at the FICO Offices in Roseville, MN.

Whether you have a portfolio of a few products or a few thousand, we’re all responsible for executing against goals. In an era of razor-thin margins, declining IT budgets, and competitors constantly trying to outmaneuver you, accurate forecasts against those goals have never been more valuable. But inventory planning can still be a roll of the dice, and poor distribution execution leads to empty shelves or aggressive discounts to clear them. Could you improve your bottom line if you forecasted more accurately? 

FICO believes you can. In fact, we’ve already delivered prescriptive analytic solutions to some of the world’s biggest brands, such as Nestle, to help them increase revenue and reduce costs. For Nestle, FICO’s prescriptive analytic solutions have delivered significant savings by maximizing payload, minimizing transportation costs and by reducing production plant costs. FICO has even helped Nestle increase sales by reducing the number of product shortages in each distribution.
