Hello, we are Hakio!

We're on a mission to radically change demand forecasting in the fashion and apparel industry. Managing inventory in fashion has long been difficult with rapid market changes, evolving trends, and shifting consumer preferences. But we're changing that now.

Drawing upon over 20 years of expertise in supply chain optimisation, we've developed cutting-edge AI-powered algorithms. These algorithms empower fashion leaders to make informed decisions about stock levels, optimising their inventory for maximum efficiency and profitability.

But our impact extends beyond the bottom line. Reducing excess stock means less waste in the end – a win-win for both businesses and the planet.

We're on a mission

At Hakio, we're on a mission to radically change how demand forecasting in the fashion and apparel industry is done today. We use advanced AI-powered algorithms to turn large chunks of data into informed decision making for fashion leaders. Not just to improve efficiency and profitability for our customers, but because we want to help tackle the urgent problem with excessive waste in the industry.

What does Hakio mean?

As you might have noticed, Hakio has a bit of a Japanese ring to it. That's because our name is inspired by a unique superpower featured in the popular manga series 'One Piece' called 'Observation Haki'. We couldn't resist incorporating a bit of our nerdy side into our brand identity!
