Juleb Forecasting Module: the ideal inventory management tool for optimized purchase and transfer processes
Running a pharmacy presents several challenges that can affect the overall efficiency. First off, accurately determining the right quantities of products needed for each branch is tricky. If a pharmacy miscalculates and orders too little, they risk running out of essential products, leading to customer dissatisfaction and potential loss to competitors. Conversely, overordering can result in high volumes of expired products, resulting in money loss. Lastly, the lack of visibility into overall inventory levels across branches further complicates the replenishment/transfer processes, contributing to imbalances where some branches have excess stock while others face understocking, which may even lead to unnecessary purchases (Endless loop)!

Pharmacy's operational processes are complex and require managers to spend numerous hours on manual tasks to analyze big data for purchases, transfers and replenishment. This not only consumes valuable time but also diverts attention from more critical aspects of managing a pharmacy, such as customer care, promotional work and new segments expansions.

Onе powеrful tool that has provеn its worth in solving these obstacles smartly and achiеving required goals is Juleb’s forecasting. Juleb’s forecasting is a smart automated tool used to predict and optimize ideal inventory levels to aid warehouse managers and pharmacy owners make data-driven decisions for their purchases and transfers. This tool can optimize inventory levels, reduce stockouts and overstocked products (expiries), and improve overall efficiency of operations for the pharmacies and warehouses.


By using the forecasting tool, pharmacy managers and owners can save money on expiries and overstocking, improve customer satisfaction, and gain competitive advantage by having trendy and necessary products on hand for all branches.

Improved customer satisfaction and Competitive advantage (Increased Sales)

Juleb Forecasting Tool helps pharmacies identify opportunities to increase sales by forecasting demand for specific products during certain times of the year (using weight average, recency and product classification algorithms). This allows managers to stock up on those products and promote them to customers. Accurate forecasting of products and quantities ensures that pharmacies have the products that recurring customers need/want on hand, leading to better customer sales and satisfaction.
