Store Level

Harness the Power of the Cloud to Optimize Your Store-level Inventory

Whether you have a few dozen or a few thousand store locations, our solutions will scale to fit your needs.

Whether you are replenishing a few dozen stores or a few thousand stores, you face numerous challenges.  You may have a short supply in your distribution centers and need to figure out how to best allocate those quantities to your stores or you may have inventory in your DCs that you want to push out to your stores as equitably as possible.  Your stores probably have multiple size and space constraints that you need to adhere to.  At the same time, you want to keep your store shelves and displays full and attractive.  Let’s not forget that to be successful, you need to rely on a vast number of people that you have to trust and likewise, you want them to trust that you are making the best possible decisions to maximize their profits and return on energy.  You don’t want perishable products to spoil needlessly, but you don’t want to run out of stock either.  You want to be well stocked for your promotions, but not overstock after the promotion.  You want to get rid of your overstock as cost-effectively as possible.  If it is cost effective to transfer it or return it, you want to do that whenever possible.  And finally, you want to manage store openings and closings as efficiently as possible.
Sounds simple. Right?
