“When it comes to greater visibility into the supply chain, especially alerts for unexpected supply shortages and critical inventory situations anywhere in the supply chain, over 60% of retailers cite real problems.”

Where did my retail profit go?

For retailers, demand volatility isn’t new. But the rate at which customer expectations are driving it is. The acceleration of change in shopping habits means brands are fiercely competing for market share. 

Coupled with ongoing supply chain disruptions, retailers are seeing the inherent vulnerabilities in their operations.  Traditional planning processes can’t keep up, resulting in excess inventory, low sell through rates and reduced margins.
