QuantiSense Has New Supply Chain Analytics
2014 by in Industry, Retail Technology
Retailers can use the software to analyze and track the flow of merchandise from manufacturer to distribution center to store, leveraging a unified picture of supply chain data with merchandising, store operations, customer insights, e-commerce analytics and more, to give retail professionals a powerful, enterprise-wide view of how the flow of specific merchandise affects the customer experience.
With the new insights delivered by QuantiSense Supply Chain & Logistics, retailers can address potential disruptions or opportunities in the supply chain, and take immediate action to remedy or capitalize on them.
The solution currently is in implementation with two major North American retailers, featuring integration with the Manhattan Associates warehouse management system.
“Retailers see tremendous value in gaining deep, detailed visibility into their supply chain,” said Jeff Buck, CEO of QuantiSense. “QuantiSense Supply Chain & Logistics lets retailers use supply chain visibility to make better decisions about merchandise management, promotions, events, store staffing, the omni-channel experience and more, ensuring that customers always get the items and service they want and expect.”
With key data spread across multiple systems, buyers, planners, allocators, store operations and marketers often struggle to get detailed visibility into the entire supply chain to answer questions such as:
* When will the items we’re heavily promoting arrive in-store?
* On what days should I increase store staffing to receive a large merchandise shipment?
* Can I commit to a specific date for shipping backordered e-commerce or catalog items directly to my consumers?
* When should I invite my best customers back to the store to see new merchandise?
* Should I airship merchandise to capitalize on an immediate selling opportunity to my best customers?
With QuantiSense Supply Chain & Logistics, all supply chain data is merged. Any retail decision-maker within the enterprise can now gain a comprehensive view of the status, timing, value and demand for merchandise, wherever it resides, helping drive new revenue, margin and customer satisfaction.
