Many people, particularly millennials, always want the latest and greatest. So do retailers. But how do you determine which stores get the hottest “it” items and how many? Enter Jesta’s Allocation module.
Jesta’s Allocation tool enables you to accurately allocate short life cycle fashion items to the stores that are likely to sell them the fastest. After all, you don’t want those items getting comfy and taking up store space; you do want a quick turnover so your revenue grows. Initial and end-of-season allocations can also be executed here.
Allocations can be done from items at the warehouse, an advanced shipment notification (ASN) or a PO for complete flexibility. Allocation quantities are suggested by Jesta’s system based on historical sales history, sophisticated store clusters or user-defined instructions (allocate according to an existing cluster, fill to, min/max, weeks of supply etc.). The control is all yours.
Don’t play the numbers game. Jesta’s Allocation module is a tool you can count on.
Specify the quantities yourself or rely on a trusted template that performed well.
