7 steps to reduce Lost Sales in E-Commerce

Most online shoppers can relate to the frustration of reading “Available in 12 weeks” when buying products online. Up to 58% of frustrated shoppers are lost customers due to product unavailability in in-store sales and 65% in online sales. These lost sales are reason enough, to take a closer look at the root causes of out-of-stock situations. That’s what we did together with the leading online store for e-mobility charging stations in Germany.


To provide daily improvement suggestions for your supply chain, we integrate the transaction and planning data from your ERP system. If possible, this is done via an API, which many ERP systems already provide. Otherwise, flat files can be exchanged automatically via an encrypted server.
Additionally, your web shop or CRM systems can be connected to numi. This allows you to enrich numi’s optimization algorithms with further data and improve and synchronize the results back.

Frequently asked questions

As with many statistical optimizations, the more data we have, the more accurate the results. For optimal results, numi needs current inventory data, past customer orders (ideally at least the last two years to identify trends and seasonality), purchasing data, and master data. In addition, the data set can also be enriched with external data to increase the accuracy of the forecast methods. Contact us to receive a data template or to discuss integration possibilities.
Your data security is very important to us. Hence, we only pull the data we need to optimize your Supply Chain, and store them on our encrypted database in Frankfurt, Germany, in compliance with local regulations. Customer names for example are not important for supply chain optimization, so we only store the IDs only.
With numi, inventory parameters such as safety stocks, minimum stocks, target stocks or reorder points can be adjusted, purchase requisitions can be created, or supplier delivery times can be corrected. In addition, numi offers the possibility to provide more realistic delivery data for your customers and overwrite it in the ERP system or make it available in your webstore.
Other tools, such as your web shop or your CRM system, can be connected to numi to improve planning in numi on the one hand, and to play optimized results back into your systems on the other. For example, projects can be imported, or website traffic can be used for demand sensing. In addition, numi offers the possibility to provide realistic availability data in your web sshop.
numi is a software-as-a-service product that is billed monthly. The costs are based on the scope of the service and the potential savings, which are determined during our free Supply Chain CheckUp, enabling us to create a fair pricing model tailored to your business.
The data numi needs is available in every ERP system. Some ERP systems offer open interfaces, which means that no effort is required on your side. If your ERP system does not provide an API, the data can usually be extracted relatively easily and exchanged via an SFTP or AWS S3 server provided by numi. Contact us to discuss the integration options.
numi aims to integrate the entire supply chain organization of your company. This includes, for example, material planners, inventory planners, warehouse planners, sales, purchasing and customer support.
