Supply chain solutions for consumer electronics businesses
The rapid evolution of technology creates challenges for consumer electronics retail. Trends come and go, product lifecycles can be short while promotions can have a major impact on demand. RELEX helps you master these challenges with confidence.
Manage the initial demand peak
In consumer electronics demand typically peaks at launch while sales quickly decline when a replacement model is expected. Success means having enough stock to meet the initial demand peak and having none left when the next generation of products appears.
With RELEX you can:
- Create reliable forecasts for new product introductions
- Allocate products effectively however you choose, e.g. by forecast or product category sales – to ensure the right quantities to the right stores
- Monitor the estimated end-of-season stock and avoid residuals
Make the most of your promotions
Besides fast product turnover, promotions also complicate forecasting and replenishment in the consumer electronics market. While demand peaks can be huge, accurate forecasts reduce the risk of lost sales and unwanted stock.
RELEX helps you to:
- Build good forecasts for promotions automatically
- Monitor the entire chain by your chosen criteria and react within the promotional period to actual sales
- Automate most of the planning for recurring and similar campaigns
- Analyze past promotions to plan more successful ones
