Predicting consumer preferences poses significant challenges for specialty store retailers. And, once a trend is identified, rapid response to capitalise on fickle tastes is essential to success. You need a comprehensive view of demand across all channels to capture data that indicate a shift in customer desires and the ability to act on that information quickly.
With the specific tools and visibility that specialty store retailers require, Manhattan Associates’ supply chain solutions give you the flexibility and information when you need it so you don't end up with inventory that doesn't sell, unexpected markdowns or stock-outs on hot sellers. Our specialty store solutions enable you to re-plan throughout the season; optimise inventory; effectively manage all aspects of promotions; forecast at the product, store cluster and channel level, and improve overall customer service.
Whether you want to enable multi-channel distribution and manage both bulk and piece-pick orders based on changing customer demand or use put-to-store and flow-through functionality, our supply chain solutions for specialty retailers can make it happen. They also allow you to build store-ready shipments and support inbound and outbound value-added services—all from the same integrated platform.
We know what works for specialty stores and have created solutions that support your reputation for great customer service and allow you to keep costs and cycle times to a minimum. Manhattan SCOPE®: Supply Chain Optimisation—Planning through Execution solutions offer you:
