Stock optimisation software for (multi-channel) allocation and replenishment based on actual sales transactions. The consumer as the heartbeat of the supply chain: for higher profit margins, less excess inventory and fewer missed sales.
Every idea starts with marvel, frustration or a feeling of ‘this can be better’. In our case, we were triggered by all three. Truly shocked by the amount of waste within retail. Warehouses are stacked with outdated merchandise and there a lot of money is wasted due to unnecessary transport and handling to redistribute to other stores. This can be different. No, this must be different Not only is this detrimental to the profit of a company, but above all the system is extremely bad for the environment ....
Do you work in the fashion industry? Do you have to redistribute stock between different stores? Then you are probably incurring unnecessary costs and should consider optimising your allocation and stock management process. Stock management is often the responsibility of a merchandise manager or store staff. But is it sensible to carry out this complex task yourself and could you save on redistribution costs?
Do you work in a sports store or for a sports brand? Do you regularly have excess inventory? Perhaps you should consider optimising and/or automating the stock management process. Stock management is often the responsibility of a supply chain manager or of store staff. But how wise is it to have such complex and time consuming tasks carried out by your staff?
Do you work in a cosmetics store or for a cosmetics brand? Do you have missed sales on a regular basis, despite a well-stocked warehouse? Then your complex stock management process may not be optimal. Stock management is often the responsibility of a supply chain manager or of store staff. But is it really possible to manage this complex process manually yourself?
