The home and garden sector deals with diverse product ranges. Some are perennial with fairly constant sales, some experience strong seasonal variations, others only sell in the two weeks before Christmas. They vary widely by sales volume, price, size, weight and shelf life. They come from scores of different suppliers.
So to manage your product lines effectively you need to be able to treat each as individually as possible. RELEX systems let you:
- Decide exactly how you want to classify each product and assign different business rules to different categories
With highly seasonal products you need the right assortment in place at the right time and you need your stock to shift by season’s end. Even year-round sellers experience swings in demand. With RELEX you can:
- Improve forecast accuracy for seasonal products with our seasonal models, which are optimised automatically for each product
- Control allocation accurately and effectively to boost seasonal sales and minimise unwanted end-of-season stock
You probably deal with hundreds of suppliers – some of them delivering to your central warehouse, some of them directly to your stores. With many suppliers orders have to meet certain conditions for you to get the best price.
To manage your transport costs you need to cut the number of half-empty trucks and keep them as full as possible.
- RELEX systems help you keep costs down by optimising order batches and transportation loads
