How does Optiply determine the colour of the dots in the advice?

In a purchase order there are dots per product. These dots indicate how reliable an advice is.


These products have an accurate prediction. We therefore advise you to follow this advice.


When a product is less predictable it will get an orange dot. Think of products that have recently suffered from fluctuating demand, enormous highs and lows. These can also be products that have been out of stock for a long time (e.g. because they were not available). Check the products with deviating advice and adjust where necessary.


When a product is new or has less than five sales orders, it will receive a red dot. Often the advice is to always order one piece. Adjust the red dots to your own preference.
