Merchandise Planning

OUR APPROACH

The planning business case consists of two elements: the strategic component and the economic component. Strategy focuses on the operational goals of the business whereas the economics looks at how you plan, manage and trade your inventory. By aligning these two aspects, you can successfully drive sales and profit up whilst managing costs down.​
