Right Product, Right Time, Right Price

Companies are challenged to provide on-trend, timely and smartly-priced merchandise. This can mean the difference between success and failure in today’s highly competitive and time-sensitive consumer lifestyle products marketplace. 

To achieve omnichannel business objectives, retailers and brands must increase their understanding of consumer demand, skillfully plan and develop their product mix and improve collaboration with their channel partners. Real-time business visibility and greater efficiency is required to improve strategic decision-making and meet consumer expectations.   

By leveraging advanced omnichannel merchandise planning strategies, more detailed assortment plans are used to translate the overall plan into the most appropriate and profitable mix for each distribution channel based on specific customer preferences and needs—resulting in on-trend merchandise reaching the market faster, a greater full price sell-through and increased margins.
