Retail Product Lifecycle Experts
Accelerate Time to Market
We help retailers reduce time to market and adapt to rapidly changing customer expectations
Every retailer knows that having a meaningful product assortment at the right time at the correct perceived value is crucial to the success of their organization. Consumers want what they want, how they want it and they want it now. With an ever-changing retail landscape, retailers must be efficient yet remain nimble in order to quickly adapt to emerging trends that resonate with their customers. Retailers can’t afford long lead times and development lifecycles. Having the right people, processes and technology in place is vital to effectively increase speed to market, minimize redundancies and decrease cost.
Our team of merchandising and product lifecycle management specialists have helped many retailers reduce time to market and implement operational improvements with appropriate Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) tools.
Optimize End-to-End Supply Chain Processes
PLM solutions enable a holistic view of end-to-end merchandise planning, product lifecycle and supply chain
As retailers strive to meet increasing consumer demands, they often look inward at merchandising and supply chain processes and tools to drive the needed efficiencies. This often requires implementing new merchandise planning, ERP and supply chain solutions to meet their goals. However, in recent years, retailers have come to recognize that optimizing their end-to-end supply chain requires both a change in how they bring product to market and the ability to link merchandise planning strategies to product design and development and supply chain solutions to effectively streamline the sourcing, procurement and movement of their product offering. Once considered an internal design and development tracking tool, modern day PLM solutions provide the ability to link merchandising and supply chain functions, enabling a holistic view of the end-to-end merchandise planning, product lifecycle and supply chain needed to drive operational optimization and accelerated time to market.
