Improved financial performance.

Improve sales and margin with dynamic in-season reforecasting that proactively adjusts to changing demand and inventory conditions. Invest in proven analytics that optimizes assortments to increase your inventory’s productivity and profitability.

Improve the customer experience.

Produce analytics-driven, localized assortment plans so you can tailor merchandise to meet the needs of your customers. Use omnichannel customer analytics to understand what customers are looking for in terms of style, color or size – and deliver a superior shopping experience.

Reduce markdowns.

Manage products throughout the planning life cycle – across organizational silos – to help make better decisions earlier and reduce costly markdowns. Create merchandise plans driven by demand forecasts to improve in-stock positions and maximize inventory turnover.

Get the right products to the right stores at the right times.

Create better assortments, optimal allocations and better execution in stores. Base assortment plans on demand forecasts. Employ an automated allocation system that uses predefined rules and methodologies.

Increase staff and process productivity.

Provide a single version of the truth with an integrated platform. Integrated worksheet analytics gives buyers and planners the ability to focus on implementation of the high-value findings.
