Assortment and Space Planning

Often times, assortment planning is a tug-of-war between art and science. There’s the art, knowing your customers and being able to create a display that demands attention, and the science, looking at the assortment as a mix of numbers, algorithms, and statistics that guide decisions. Automate the process with our Assortment & Space Planning solution that combines art and science to give you the flexibility to get more in-depth assortments.

Allocation Strategy

Allocation

Take all the guesswork out of allocating products to locations with our Allocation solution. It uses allocation rules to model performance criteria to determine the best placement of stock. Taking current stock, inbound stock, and need into account, the solution quickly allocates inventory to locations to maximize selling potential.
Stock can be pre-allocated to increase warehouse efficiency by enabling the cross-dock of stock on arrival. Additionally, configurable allocation rules allow for managing different phases of the product lifecycle including new products, ongoing and pushing out stock for end-of-life products.

Demand Forecasting

Automate the production of your forecasts with our Demand Forecasting engine. With smarter forecasts that represent true demand, you’ll avoid poor forecasting outcomes like overstocks, product obsolescence and lost sales.
For the most effective demand forecasting, you need true demand history, not just sales history. We provide this critical piece by identifying periods of insufficient stock, which are then used to calculate lost sales. You’ll get the full picture of what sales might have been, had there been enough of the products in stock that your customers wanted.
