What Does Inventory Optimization & Retail Planning Include?

Our inventory optimization and retail planning solutions include three components:  planning, allocation, and replenishment.


Retail planning solutions can help you set goals for sales performance, inventory, and other financial metrics, then track results and note any variances to these goals. By tying enterprise-wide strategic plans to the execution of shared goals, your company will become more efficient, increase revenue, and minimize financial risks.


Allocation software is the ideal solution for fashion or seasonal items. Allocation can help you analyze how certain items have performed at certain stores, as well as their potential for future performance, then use that information to assign individual item quantities to specific store locations. Having the right mix of products available at the right time will help stores earn customers’ repeat business and strengthen brand loyalty.


Replenishment software is best for managing core basic items. Replenishment can help your stores automatically acquire products on a recurring basis in order to satisfy anticipated needs. Your company will be able to deliver outstanding service while also minimizing your inventory investment, thereby maximizing profits.
