“IPTOS” I-ne’s brand management system
IPTOS is a series of gates that control each step of product development, from brand planning to scaling. Each gate has its own KPI.
We record successes and failures at each gate and use this data to expedite a PDCA cycle. Through IPTOS, we’ve minimized risk and built knowledge about past successes and failures. This system allows us to generate hit products consistently with minimal risk.
Over 90% Accuracy Rate in Demand Forecasts for Haircare Products
Implementing IPTOS has significantly improved demand forecasting accuracy, particularly in predicting post-release Point of Sale (POS) data based on pre-launch surveys.
Based on the forecasts conducted in 2022, we achieved an impressive average forecast accuracy of 92.8% for brands BOTANIST, YOLU, and DROAS. Similarly, our success rate for new haircare brands launched in the past 3 years has exceeded 75%.
