Every retailer has gone down the rabbit hole of trying to improve their sales and inventory planning systems with little to no financial results to show for it.
And that is because the real ROI lies not in better planning but in better allocation, for where a retailer decides to place its goods in-season, considering all the constraints it must optimize against, has an immediate impact on the bottom line.
So Omni Talk is pleased to announce that Manhattan’s Senior Director, Product Strategy, Scott Fenwick, joined Chris Walton and Anne Mezzenga for the latest installment of their Omni Talk Ask An Expert Series to discuss all the ways retailers can capitalize on the financial opportunity latent in better allocation.
Collectively the three of them go deep on:
– The increased pressures all the various fulfillment options coming out of the pandemic (e.g., BOPIS, ship-from-store, etc.) have placed on allocation systems
– How most legacy allocation systems do not know how to read and react to these new “Omni”-signals
– And, perhaps most importantly, why all of that ladders up into one heck of an ROI opportunity
