How does Counterpoint Calculate Seasonal Purchasing
Last Updated 6 months ago

The Counterpoint suggested order process can accommodate seasonal purchasing by way of the automated seasonality calculations. 

You can opt to have Counterpoint calculate seasonality based on the following parameters:

  • W – Winter item with over 70% of total sales activity being done in the Dec Jan Feb months
  • V – Spring item with over 70% of total sales activity being done in the Mar Apr May months
  • U – Summer item with over 70% of total sales activity being done in the Jun Jul Aug months
  • F – Fall item with over 70% of total sales activity being done in the Sep Oct Nov months

The suggested order quantity for seasonal parts is calculated using the weighted average daily sales for the last 2 seasons if the days to buy for are in the season. When the days to order is out of season for the product the suggested order calculation uses the weighted average daily sales for the last 18 out of season months.

Once populated, the suggested order process will consider the seasonality of the product when suggesting order quantities.
