Retailers with complex supply-chains need to closely align merchandising in stores to their supply and distribution network to maximize profits otherwise they can easily lose their margin before the goods reach the stores. Austin Labs fulfillment application identifies points of concern in the fulfillment network - excess inventory, insufficient coverage, or non-optimal mix of SKUs.
- Create a weekly distribution and inventory plan to minimize fulfillment costs while delivering a desired fulfillment level to stores
- For each SKU, determine the right level of cover at each distribution center by time of the year
- For retailers with manufacturing facilities, also create a manufacturing plan that aligns with the distribution and inventory plan
- Maximize margins over the entire supply-chain and not just in your stores
