Merchandise Financial Planning (MFP) is a critical activity in the retail industry, enabling seamless planning and execution of a company’s strategy by providing end-to-end visibility and continuity across all brands, products, channels, and regions. This approach has immense value for retail companies as it enables them to define financial targets and optimize inventory levels to meet customer demand while minimizing the risk of overstocking or stockouts. By providing a comprehensive view of a retailer’s operations, MFP enables better, faster decision-making about pricing, promotions, and inventory allocation to maximize profitability and minimize risk.
