Mi9 Retail enables users to plan prices at a product level while reviewing the impact at an aggregate level. What-if scenarios allow for comparisons on unit volume, revenue, and margin. Users can also compare the target revenue from the Merchandise Financial Planning module. The plans can be further refined by geographic and demographic hierarchies. During the planning process, users can look at inventory, price elasticity, and product rate-of-sale data, in addition to historical performance.

Validations

As the users are managing plans, they have immediate visibility into any potential problems before the plans are submitted. This reduces the planning process timeline, allowing for faster reaction to market conditions. The exceptions can also be made visible in the dashboard, focusing users on the elements that require attention.

MARKDOWN PLANNING

Smart Retailers Use Markdowns to Increase Customer Demand, Better Manage Inventory, and Phase Out Products

Effective markdown management can help retailers drive incremental buyer traffic, reduce excess inventory at the highest possible prices, and support effective product phase-outs. JustEnough Markdown Planning provides an intuitive, interactive way to set multiple markdown structures while maintaining complete visibility into the impact they may have on inventory, revenue, and margin. With JustEnough, creating a successful markdown strategy has never been easier.

Plan Price and Markdown Structures

Users have the ability to create a price and markdown structure at a product level with a complete view of current inventory, price elasticity, and product rate of sale. Phase-out dates can also be set at the product level. Multiple markdown structures with variable durations can be easily set and the results are instantly available so planners can compare the impact of the markdowns on product margins, revenues, and unit volumes until the phase out date of each product.

Manage Product Phase-out

By setting phase-out dates, JustEnough Price and Markdown Planning can calculate products which are expected to exceed their phase-out dates and an estimated sell-through date is projected. The system also provides a suggested markdown rate in order for the product to be sold out by the planned phase-out date.
