In Sweden there is a company called Hemglass that delivers ice cream to people’s homes in refrigerated vans. This company is very well know in Sweden, not only for its ice creams, but also for the music the van’s play to alert people they have arrived at their door. If you are curious about how it sounds, you can check it out here.
We are going to enter this market and try to beat them at their own game and for that we are going to use Microsoft Flow and Power BI.
Here is the game plan:
Using flow, we will collect every morning the weather forecast and send send it to our drivers using Office 365, so they know how much they should stock on their vans. We will, at the same time, send the data to Power Bi so we can store it in our records. We can after a while, compare the weather data with the sales on our vans and develop a stock strategy that is more accurate.
To do this, you don’t need to write a single line of code. Any business owner can do it. J
