Retail Planning Software
In retail, the moment of decision is everything. If you don’t have the right product in the right place at the right time your customers often won’t wait. And yet having too much stock on hand means you’ll be forced to mark stock down in order to sell it, reducing your margins. Making the right merchandising decisions and accurately managing your inventory across multiple channels becomes more challenging in today’s fast moving retail environment.
