“We wanted a solution where we could right from the start focus on what the team do best and that is planning. “…“we are able now to synchronize bottom up and top-down planning processes and everything is linked together...”
—Martin Walter, Head of Merchandise Planning at ABOUT YOU
ABOUT YOU is a digital shopping destination where people can discover fashions from a 2,000+ brand range. It is one of the fastest growing e-Commerce companies in Europe based in Hamburg, Germany.
This innovative company set out to digitalize the classic shopping experience on a smartphone. Boasting 1000+ passionate employees from 77 countries with sales in 25 markets topping €1,17bn in the fiscal year 2020/21, ABOUT YOU is now one of the largest fashion e-tailers in Germany.
The complexity due to sheer number and categories of the fashions that ABOUT YOU offers, requires careful and data-driven planning. Martin Walter, Head of Merchandise Planning at ABOUT YOU says, “We were searching for a smarter solution where everything was connected right up from the start and that could include BI data to avoid us [having] to enter the data manually, spending too much time.”
