Turn specialty retail challenges
Better manage complexities across the specialty retail supply chain, including large and varied assortments, long-lead times,
and omnichannel needs.
Large & complex assortments
Specialty retailers need to cost-efficiently carry a broad assortment, ensuring that the right products are available at the right locations at the right time to avoid losing sales to competitors.
Long lead times and delivery uncertainty
Specialty products sourced internationally may have long lead times or delivery date uncertainty, which makes it difficult to ensure availability, particularly during seasonal peaks or in times of supplier shortfalls.
Seasonality and short lifecycles
Specialty retailers typically include a large number of seasonal and short-lifecycle products in their assortment. Thus, it’s critical for them to accurately identify products and prices for clearance to avoid costly overstock or a hit to tight margins.
Multiple sales channels
Consumers expect an omnichannel shopping experience, which brings fulfillment complexity and challenges in maintaining availability and efficiency in each channel.
