Solutions
Enablement or Abandonment Model
The goal is clear: decrease the loss of clients. The behavior of clients during the validity period of a contract of services or maintenance, as well as the features of the asset in question, offers useful information stating if the client is inclined to cancel the contract or, on the contrary, to keep or even extend the contact. We give a cancellation likelihood score to clients in order to take better decisions and prevent cancellations.

Task Optimization
The productization of processes within organizations is the reason behind subdividing work into diverse tasks according to their goal, duration, impact or resource specialization. All these conditions, on top of collective agreements, sick leaves or overtime complicate planning and the assignment of tasks. Frequently this is solved manually by a planning responsible. Our optimization engines help plan, in a matter of seconds, the work of big teams for several years, taking into account all restrictions and modifying results thanks to the use of parameters available to the planning responsible.

Detection of potential markets
We answer two questions: which potential client has which chance of becoming a client? What is the optimal offer or every existing client and potential client? The main goal is to automatically assess commercial opportunities in support of the sales and marketing departments and focus efforts in a better way. The company's clients are profiled by sector and activity, based on all available information in the market. We assign a potentiality score to companies in the market with conditions, activities and behaviors similar to clients. Additionally, the client profiling offers information about up/cross-selling oportunities on existing clients.

Demand Forecasting
We train machine-learning models with historical demand data in a specific product or family, improving information with external factors that can affect the demand of that specific product. From that estimate, better decisions on production, distribution and provisioning can be taken. An accurate estimate of demand is critical for business planning.

Event Forecasting
The planning of the workload of technicians and the optimization of resources are heavily influenced by the knowledge of when a machine can broke down, how many incidences of a specific kind will happen in an area in the following weeks, or how many spare pieces will be needed.

Obsolescence
Forecasting the point in the life cycle where an asset is at the moment is critical to optimize stocks and take good provisioning decisions, just as forecasting obsolescence and the optimal liquidation point in time and sales channel. This is not just a way to save costs and optimize stocks, but it also can boost incomes from the sale of surplus, obsolete and end-of-life assets.
