Merchandising, Planning & Product Lifecycle Management

Get everything in the right place at the right time for the right people



Customers dictate retail.  Whether it’s in-store, online or over the phone, they want to know what’s available and how soon they can get it.

But trying to keep up with competing demands from different channels can cause chaos behind the scenes.

Our end-to-end solution synchronises all functions within the retail cycle –purchasing, receiving, pricing, stock management, allocation, replenishment, order management, in-store stock management and warehousing – to help you buy smart and sell through efficiently.

A new modern user interface provides a unique product focused way of working and tools to assist the merchandisers in their day to day job.




Plan at the lowest level and keep category and store plans synchronised

Retail is constantly changing. And in the face of competitor campaigns, unpredictable weather and emerging trends, it’s even more important that you can re-plan swiftly.

Our planning solution is based on the fundamental merchandising practice of getting the right merchandise in the right place at the right time.

Driven by a powerful calculation engine, it automates the time-consuming tasks associated with planning, enabling you to spend more time on the things that truly drive your business.
