Retail Planning

Launch your Merchandise Lifecycles Here

A store rack that’s often full of extra-small T-shirts, but consistently devoid of, say, mediums is a sure sign that someone’s retail planning is out of touch. When done successfully, retail planning makes sure that in-demand items in an optimal assortment of colors and sizes are always available in the stores that are likely to sell them fast.

Jesta’s retail planning solutions ensures that T-shirts of all sizes get customer love by providing buyers, inventory managers and merchandisers with a centralized, 360° real-time view of stock, sales performance, store capabilities and selling patterns, and shopper histories. Decision-makers can then build precise market segments, product ranges and price lines to tightly align your offerings — T-shirts and otherwise — with the locations, channels and customers that demand them. Sales increase, markdowns decrease, stock-to-sales ratios equalize.

In addition to exhaustive inventory planning, Jesta’s retail planning solutions provide end-to-end financial capabilites. The integrated platform enables you to connect your open-to-buy (OTB) with your margin targets accounting for price, promotions and markdowns throughout the season, and allowing you to change course and explore other growth possibilities when desires shift.
