E-Commerce Sellers Survey
The purpose of the survey is to identify the pain points of small and medium sized e-commerce businesses in forecasting their demands and planning their inventory well.

The results would be used as inputs to prioritize and refine feature for an Forecasting and Inventory Planner app I am developing particularly to address this sector.
I am currently employed full-time and this is my personal side project which I am working on during my weekends and vacations :) .
Please read this blog post to know more about the background and motivation behind this. https://skulogi.com/blog/smart_inventory_planner/

Your inputs would be invaluable in developing the right solution and as a token of appreciation I would like to offer the following to all participants.

1) EARLY ACCESS of Beta Product (once completed).
2) Extended FREE TRIAL (upto 3 Months).
3) 40% Discount for those who would like to subscribe to an annual plan at the end of free trials.
4) A white-glove on-boarding when converting to a paid plan. (i.e 1-on-1 calls to support setup and use the product, discuss custom feature/integration requests or any other queries.)

In addition to above 1 randomly selected participant would get an Amazon Echo Smart Speaker as FREE GIFT.

(Subject to availability in the participants region or an equivalent item/cash voucher).
