Does Your Software Fit The Way You Need It To Fit?
Apparel retailers know that their customers are looking for things that fit. In fact, the top question apparel shoppers want to know is, “Is this item the one I want?” and fit is high on the checklist to determine that criteria. But apparel retailers need something that fits, too — their software. If your retail software doesn’t fit, you have problems.
- Product assortments need to be based on an intelligent assessment of what has been purchased in the past and what will probably be in demand in the future. The wrong assortment is a problem because the customer won’t buy what they don’t want.
- Allocation needs to be wise so that the right product is in the right place at the right time. Poorly planned allocation is a problem because the product isn’t where the customer can buy it.
- Product analysis needs to be comprehensive so that descriptions, provenance, and other details are accurate. An insufficient analysis is a problem because it causes inadequate decisions.
- Replenishment needs to be automated so that stock levels are restored in an efficient fashion. Manual replenishment methods are a problem because the potential for human error is multiplied exponentially with every added channel you sell on.
- Performance and product management can only be as effective as the tools you use to collect information, filter it for analysis, and make decisive actions happen. Poor tools are a problem because they don’t fit the task at hand.
