Consumer demands are evolving. Make integrated decisions that are better and faster to drive growth.

Common apparel & footwear
challenges by role

  • “I have difficulty matching products with changing consumer behavior, trends (e.g. casualization and choices).”
  • “I have to launch an increasing number of new and personalized items.”
  • “Massive volumes of customer, supplier, product, and market data are available but not being used effectively to drive decisions and business results.”
  • “Our market visit reports are all on email – no way to reference them systematically.”
  • “We have limited Visibility to NPI, Marketing, Promotion & Price Changes – Extremely manual processes.”
  • “There is complex coordination between different actors, where often the manufacturing is not owned by our brand.”
  • “We have a lack of collaboration and visibility between various links in the supply chain, causing poor insights into SKU levels leading to over/under stocks.”
  • “Allocation of constrained supply is often contentious and sub-optimal.”
  • “We have store footprint rationalization due to consumer demand shifts to e-commerce.”
  • “We are seeing significant shifts in demand across channels and products that are hard to forecast."
  • “Managing unique seasonality and SKU variances across my regions is challenging.”
  • “Proliferation of product offers due to new collection launches, are resulting in higher inventory in the store.”
  • “Slow, siloed planning processes without clear view on constraints lead to alignment gap between planning, finance and operations execution."
  • “Increasing volatility of raw material and commodity costs are creating headwinds.”
  • “Our S&OP process is conducted on PowerPoint – A big productivity drain driving highly ineffective meetings.”
  • “Our AOP /finance process is disconnected from the rolling forecasts of our S&OP process.”
  • “Our growth return on marketing/trade spend is not meeting expectations.”

Aim big, start small, iterate rapidly.
