After noticing that Islands key performance indicators could potentially be higher, KEXY reached out to them to help by adding in the crucial specialty of machine learning and analytics. KEXY chose Islands as a data partner in order to demonstrate the potential for inefficiencies and improve their inventory purchasing plan through a strategy such as machine learning.

Once KEXY chose Islands as a data partner to show proof of possible inefficiencies; all that was required was past data to feed to the machine learning modeling tool. This way they would grasp the customers’ consumption behavior in an attempt to forecast it and then distill it into a more efficient inventory purchasing plan.


By accessing data from all 56 locations KEXY fed their system the information through their five (5) step process. From organizing the data, analyzing it, preparing it for the model, choosing the most critical variables, and ultimately allowing the model to provide the proper insight.

KEXY was able to run their machine learning model to predict customer consumption patterns and optimize Islands' inventory purchasing plan. The model identified usage as the main variable that could be used to minimize waste and overstock; which made it possible for KEXY to forecast an ideal inventory requirement for Islands by running four different scenarios and slightly modifying a few variables.

With the assistance of strong data from Islands on this collaboration, the system predicted that KEXY could help Islands to get potential savings of up to $440,000 every month in saved inventory throughout all 50 plus of their stores.

A real-world case study like this is an excellent example of how data analytics and advanced technology can be used to identify and solve inefficiencies, and ultimately lead to improved business outcomes and revenues.
