Fashion Retail World Tour 2016 - Sydney

Transforming Retail Planning & Analytics in Fashion Retail

It’s no coincidence that in 2015 less than 45% of retailers were found to be using advanced analytics for store and assortment planning, yet more than half of surveyed retailers confessed to discounting 10-24% of their stock as a result of over-buying, or purchasing the wrong products.

A successful retail business relies on the vital balance of stock planning and sales forecasting by the Merchandise & Assortment Planning team to enable the wider corporate strategic plan; a process that commonly relies upon hefty, detailed spreadsheet systems and time-consuming weekly reporting.

Join BOARD at this event and hear how leading retailers have transformed their business with the aid of advanced planning and analytical software designed with retailers in mind.
