To stay competitive in today’s consumer goods market, many brands and retailers sell products through multiple distribution channels, including eCommerce, wholesale and retail shops. Dealing with separate systems for each distribution channel, as well as silos of inventory and data, can become a complex management challenge.
The Apparel Magazine webinar, “Smart Inventory Fulfillment Strategies for Multi-Channel Brands & Retailers,” which is sponsored by CGS, will bring together thought leaders in the consumer brands market to discuss how brands and retailers can tackle the complexities of a multi-channel supply chain and develop the smartest fulfillment strategy for their organizations. The panel will address key questions for strategy development, including:
- Is the inventory virtual or pooled?
- Which is the best distribution channel to use for fulfillment?
- How do you manage planning and purchasing?
- Who owns the inventory?
- How do you give the consumer/customer or retail store full visibility to the entire supply chain?
- How do you manage the allocation of goods for eCommerce, retail and wholesale?
“Efficient, smart and effective order fulfillment is crucial for brands and retailers of all sizes, and can also be one of the biggest challenges when it comes to omnichannel retailing,” said Ajay Chidrawar, CGS. “I’m looking forward to discussing how brands and retailers can best manage their supply chain and map out fulfillment strategies for their organizations.”
