Retail’s BIG Show | January 15-17 2017 | Booth 830

RELEX Solutions, one of the fastest growing providers of integrated retail and supply chain planning solutions, will be showcasing its state-of-the-art systems, which have delivered significant financial benefits to its retail customers, at NRF’s Annual Convention & EXPO on the 15-17th January 2017.

RELEX has tapped into the power of in-memory computing through its proprietary columnar technology. According to Gartner’s latest Hype Cycle for Supply Chain Planning publication, the field of In-Memory Computing (IMC) is the only technology offering transformational business benefits within the next 2 to 5 years. Michael Falck, Head of US operations, comments: “For over 10 years, we’ve been delivering IMC enabled packaged solutions providing our customers with the speed and processing power needed to gain powerful insight for faster decision-making. Our Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions are readily available and deliver business benefit in a fraction of the time associated with traditional ERP systems. We are so confident in the results that we offer a “try before you buy” approach that returns full ROI in months rather than years.”

RELEX will launch its new online collaboration solution at NRF. Store users will be able to view proposed planograms, created by the centralized planning team in an impressive 3D planogram viewer. The state-of-the-art solution will enable the user to make local range changes and run what-if scenarios as simply as a drag and drop, in real time, for higher sales and margins. An industry first, the fully collaborative planogram editor will also make it possible for head office merchandisers to view and edit planograms simultaneously with other stakeholders such as vendors or category captains.

RELEX is also proud of its success built on 100% customer referenceability, and is delighted to have two of its customers speaking at NRF:

  • Mari Nenonen, Supply Chain Manager at international textile design company Marimekko, will give insights and actionable tips to optimize a global multi-echelon operation with limited resources. Working with RELEX, Marimekko has been able to better manage inventory management and assortment planning, resulting in a 22% reduction in DC inventory and a 22% increase in company-level turnover.
  • Bill Crayton, Vice President of Merchandising at LifeWay Christian Stores will explain how the omni-channel retailer efficiently leverages local store resource intelligence with centralized replenishment and allocation processes to maximize sales, margins and improve customer experience. In collaboration with Columbus Consulting International, RELEX has helped LifeWay with its long-term business strategy to manage a single inventory across all departments.

“Putting our customers first, and offering a transparent, honest partnership combined with strong innovation are the basis of our success,” says Falck. “We want to continue to exceed our customers’ expectations and look forward to unveiling the latest addition to our portfolio of solutions at NRF.”
