About Pull Logic Pull Logic is based on research out of the Georgia Institute of Technology and the work of Dr. Benoit Montreuil who leads the Supply Chain and Logistics Institute there and solves the $1.8 trillion problem of “Inventory Distortion” as defined by the retail advisory firm, IHL Group.   Its narrowly focused AI solves this inventory distortion problem of “lost sales” and “unproductive inventory” and has yielded results of up to 30% revenue increase and up to a 50% decrease in unproductive inventory. While the Pull Logic solution is simple to understand and implement, it uses sophisticated algorithms and models based on the customer’s data to predict customer demand and manage inventory more efficiently.    More importantly, it does not replace existing systems but complements and works alongside them to achieve these results and can be implemented in a matter of weeks.
