Underselling Great Products?

Brands and retailers worldwide are struggling to select the best product assortments for retail and e-commerce channels to maximize the assortment value at retail and are therefore not realizing full sales potential.

Relying on dense, out of date spreadsheets, PowerPoints and other documents for worldwide & regional merchandising and buying is chaos and increases the risk of critical errors. Without true visibility, no flexibility and outdated and incomplete information, it is impossible to make good decisions. How can you optimize product assortments by channel, region, store-type or persona?

Want to stop wasting time and energy?

That sounds like me!
