JustEnough Software is now part of Mi9 Retail. Read the press release.
Irvine, Calif. – May 3, 2017 – JustEnough Software, a leading provider of demand management solutions for retail, wholesale and direct-to-consumer businesses worldwide, today announced that Tommy Bahama, an island-inspired lifestyle brand that defines relaxed, sophisticated style in men’s and women’s sportswear, swimwear, accessories, footwear, as well as a complete home furnishings collection, has gone live with its Merchandise Financial Planning solution, which helps top retailers around the world better set sales, margin and inventory targets and manage their open-to-buy budgets.
Although Tommy Bahama began as a wholesale company, over the years it has opened 168 domestic and international retail stores, restaurants and has launched an e-commerce site. Seeking powerful and responsive solutions to support a multi-channel retail organization, the company turned to JustEnough Software for its proven ability to help retailers manage by exception, leverage inventory throughout the supply chain, as well as deliver planning and process consistency across multiple channels.
Tommy Bahama ultimately selected JustEnough’s fully integrated Merchandise Financial Planning, Allocation and Assortment Planning solutions. JustEnough’s best-in-class implementation team took the lead on a phased solution rollout that began with Merchandise Financial Planning on a cloud-based model to reduce the retailer’s total cost of ownership.
The JustEnough team worked closely with the retailer on solution design and an implementation timeline. After a smooth, on-time installation with minimal disruption to the business, Tommy Bahama went live with Merchandise Financial Planning in early spring.
“With a focus on driving our direct to consumer business, we partnered with JustEnough for a solution to provide a world-class shopping experience for our guests no matter how they shop with the goal to optimize inventory across channels, make fulfillment decisions based on customer service and increase sell-thru while reducing costs. The Merchandise Financial Planning solution was the first step towards reaching these goals,“ said Stacy Plews, Sr. Director DTC Planning at Tommy Bahama. “Working with the JustEnough implementation team was a great experience, their expertise and support allowed us to take a spreadsheet-based manual process and leverage their technology to deliver consistency in planning and process across product divisions and channels to focus our time on strategically managing our business. As our business evolves their solution will give us a flexible and scalable tool to meet this future demand.“
Malcolm Buxton, President and CEO of JustEnough Software, added, “We are delighted to provide Tommy Bahama with a solution that gives its users the ability to plan multiple brands, channels and currencies – all in one view. We look forward to continuing our collaboration with Tommy Bahama as it realizes bottom-line results from using Merchandise Financial Planning, and as we embark on the future installation of Allocation and Assortment Planning.“
