More seasons, more often – more is now the expectation of consumers across the board, for all types of products. Time to market is shrinking and products are more globalized than before, making them even more difficult to manage. At the same time, there is more profitability pressure on every SKU and the margin of error has shrunk; success in a season dictates a very high percentage, up to 90%, of revenue attainment for retailers. Retail PLM offers a multitude of advantages and drives efficiencies including arming expansion strategies like launching private/white label brands, adding new categories, expanding geographically or adding selling channels.
