Smart Assortment Plan

Enable merchandisers and planners to optimize inventory mix with computational power to go up to a granularity of design level attributes of styles.

  • Identify NOOS- top sellers/ best sellers and core styles with persistent sales for a longer period of time
  • Perform computations up to 17 levels of product attributes for ideal decision making
  • Better forecast across stores basis true rate of sales at the store-attribute group level by analyzing past sales, revenue, discounts, size-cuts, stock-outs, and exposure.
  • Identify and discard highly discounted sales that distort true demand
  • Achieve higher revenue and margins by identifying true style level store demand and maintain continuity of pivotal sizes in each store. 
  • Lower inventory cost by correcting long-tail styles at the store-attribute group level.

Open To Buy

Maintain freshness throughout the season by creating an appropriate mix of inventory in the right levels with high availability as per the local demand.

  • Automate store-style level buy across drops
  • Determine actual procurement order based on Demand Planning, Depletion, Returns, and other considerations like lead time and MoQ, to find the opening inventory at the start of the OTB period
  • Predict daily ROS at an attribute group level

Dynamic Discounting and Reordering

Basis a style’s on-going performance and stock-status, the smart algorithm recommends if it is an outperformer and should be re-ordered, or if the current discount should be increased or decreased, basis:

  • Price elasticity and brand-category level guardrails for discounting and reordering
  • True ROS ™ of healthy size-set, when compared to others
  • Current discounting
  • Ageing of style
  • The present health of the style

Optimal Store Allocation

Take advantage of this highly advanced and automated solution that generates a dynamic store-style ranking to optimize inventory distribution through:

  • Fresh/ New season allocation
  • Size-wise and collection/story-wise displays
  • Event-based allocation
  • Automated replenishment and replacement system. 
  • Identifying non-moving dead styles in stores and suggesting pullback to warehouse

Inter-store transfers

Prevent extra buying and utilize inventory redistribution between stores to:

  • Improve stock health
