Simplify Replenishment Methods With ChainDrive
ChainDrive Retail Merchandising software gives merchandising methods a makeover by allowing the user to define the attributes being assigned. For example, performance monitoring can be categorized by style, brand, collection, or season. This lets you look at your actual data in multiple ways so the real factors affecting replenishment can be viewed.
That means you can simplify the way you handle your merchandising methodologies without sacrificing efficiency or profit.
The Value of Simulation
Maybe your business has always been primarily seasonal and replenishment has always reflected that. With ChainDrive’s advanced analytical tools you can simulate other ways of looking at your data without risk. When all the information is collected across the enterprise and stored in a secure, centralized database, it’s simple to be creative.
Look at what changes when your merchandise strategy is based on style vs season. Explore the variables stock-outs in a size and make accurate projections for each scenario. The ability to visualize the outcome of different decisions simplifies the choices because you see the potential of each action.
The Effectiveness of Customization
If a simulation is like trying on all the clothes in the store, customization is like having the tailor professionally fit your choice. A custom fit is effective in clothing because it is perfect for the specific body wearing the item.
Customization in merchandising software is effective because it makes the process fit the specific business. From vendor management to allocation, the most effective “fit” for retailers is a fit that is perfect for the specific business using the software. With ChainDrive’s flexible format, retailers can find that perfect fit through user-defined attributes. The retailer can also work with our support team to develop a custom component that optimizes their application. Our free demo can be customized, too, so you can see what can be done.
The Importance of Automation
Automated replenishment simplifies management because it happens without human intervention. But automation is only effective when it is appropriately used. ChainDrive’s Merchandising software makes it simple to set parameters once you have determined the best replenishment settings. Then those processes can be monitored, edited, or deleted as necessary. Prioritize your team’s valuable time by letting the software do what can be done with automation and let your people do what they do best.
