A unified starting point for planning means you can assess future adjustments and opportunities easily.
Inventory, store and sales information is always aligned in Vision Merchandising and Planning.
Plan receipts used to derive an OTB are automatically leveraged in Vision Merchandising during PO creation.
Plan views can be switched on the fly: currency, currency/units, currency by quarter, or currency/units by quarter.
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 Vision Merchandising.
Product plans can be viewed weekly, monthly, quarterly, by season or annually, and be exported to Excel, manipulated and then reimported into the system.
