Our predictive ACMs isolate the factors that drive behavior through data-driven customer segmentation and accurately predict final demand across each segment. 


In addition to demand forecasting and using that information to drive better pricing and selling decisions, our forecasting ACMs can also be trained on your capacity purchase data to determine the best time to purchase capacity to meet future demand by buying when costs are forecasted to be at their lowest.
