Merchandise Planning

Define your open-to-buys, margins and revenue, digitize your planning so users can easily share, publish and reconcile different plans and versions.

Customer-Centric

Planning

Merchandise planners far and wide have to consider two main things: money and demand. While some retailers do this from two separate spreadsheets, Jesta’s Merchandise Planning solution considers cost and customer desires simultaneously. After all, your product purchases have to suit both your financial and customer-driven needs.

Jesta’s Merchandise Planning solution is wholly integrated with Merchandising ERP (read: one centralized, single version of the truth). Planning and Merchandising can be synchronized on command or scheduled to do so as you wish. Jesta’s Merchandise Planning solution accommodates multiple plans (original, current and working) so you can review and modify, then easily compare different planned tactics against each other.

Calculating revenue, margins and open-to-buys in tight harmony with past performance and inventory forecasts, while cascading planning scenarios top-down or bottom-up at the executive or merchandise level, improves the success rate of your merchandise strategies. What’s more, when adjustments have to be made, this kind of holistic approach makes time-consuming recalculations easier, faster and more precise. Combine your data sources — there’s strength in numbers.

Discover the core features that make Jesta I.S. Merchandising ERP your ultimate choice for success:

When a supervisor approves a planner’s working plan, it’s automatically copied to the original plan and/or current plan, a welcome safety net in times of need.

The system can house multiple plans: up to four working (draft) plans, the original plan, the current (revised) plan and the actual plan with historical values from Merchandising ERP.

Product plans can be viewed weekly, monthly, quarterly, by season or annually, and be exported to Excel, manipulated and then reimported into the system.
