Is your ERP system holding you back?

Retail industry experts and analysts agree that a solid foundational platform is a critical value driver for the business, rather than simply an operating cost.

Building a Business Case for Demand Management
Co-Hosted with Hobson & Company

April 2 | 12 p.m. ET

If you are considering transitioning from a legacy or homegrown planning, allocation, or replenishment system to something automated, integrated, and intelligent, you are likely understating the financial benefits of doing so. Building a business case that captures the real costs of lost sales, markdowns, manual processes, inventory carrying costs, and more, is the only way to quantify the impact on your bottom line. With a comprehensive, fact-based approach to evaluating ROI, you can deliver a business case that drives consensus internally.

In this webinar, we cover:

  • How to build a compelling business case to make a well-informed investment decision
  • KPIs needed to produce an ROI calculation
  • How to measure the success of a demand planning software implementation

Optimizing Allocations Amidst All the Unknowns
Co-Hosted with The Parker Avery Group

April 9 | 12 p.m. ET

Whether it’s a global health crisis, a change in a regional weather pattern, or a local concert, it’s important to set your inventory levels thoughtfully and deliberately. Eroding margins and increasing competition mean it’s no longer feasible to buy an extra 10% of inventory to cover mistakes. Even in the best of circumstances, inventory accuracy and rate of sale is critical to supply chain optimization.

In this webinar, we cover:

  • How to utilize AI and ML to mirror organizational risk tolerance
  • Where and how an intelligent solution can optimize human attention
  • Overview and demo of Mi9 Allocation capabilities

Assortment Planning: Addressing Item Level Planning Challenges
Co-Hosted with The Parker Avery Group

April 14 | 12 p.m. ET

The Coronavirus pandemic will undoubtedly add complexity to the assortment planning process in the future. This time next year, item level demand modeling may prove challenging when analyzing this current selling period, especially if you’re relying on spreadsheets and manual analysis. With the right technology, demand can be properly modeled in order to generate accurate sales plans at the item level.

In this webinar, we cover:

  • How to apply multiple historical periods and remove anomalies to precisely model demand
  • How to apply strategic triggers prior to purchasing inventory
  • Overview and demo of Mi9 Retail Assortment Planning capabilities
