Let’s talk about the company!

The fast-fashion business strategy relies on foreseeing micro fashion trends and bringing them to market swiftly and cheaply. Because fast-fashion merchants focus on forecasting rather than producing fashion trends, accuracy is crucial; otherwise, they risk being left with inventory they can’t sell once the next “micro-trend” begins. As a result, fast-fashion merchants are turning to machine learning to help them spot trends and prevent costly product cycles and that’s why H&M is also turning to machine learning!

H&M is turning to machine learning in order to boost performance. It wants to evaluate shop receipts, returns, and loyalty card data to better align supply and demand and lessen dependency on markdowns, according to the Wall Street Journal.

The company is putting a lot of money into machine learning to help with assortment and demand planning. It has developed a team of data scientists, analysts, and engineers to examine data ranging from external blog postings to internal purchase data, rather than depending on merchants to predict trends.

The firm is investing in automated warehouses in addition to deploying machine-learning algorithms to improve assortments, with the ultimate objective of attaining next-day delivery for 90% of the European market.

H&M hopes to integrate RFID technology in its stores in the long run to boost supply chain efficiencies. Customers might scan labels with RFID technology and obtain customised recommendations based on their purchasing history or preferences.
