Buyerplan Assortment Planner offers a simple and flexible approach to financial, store and product planning. The application has been designed to deliver a financially sound range that is either space or rate-of-sale driven. It promotes greater option control, reduced markdowns and increased profitability.
The application integrates the financial planning necessary to formulate a buying budget with the store planning needed to calculate the grade option structure. Data may be entered at any level of the product or store hierarchy and it is then automatically consolidated or spread down.
A key objective is to calculate the proposed width and depth of each range and this can be achieved for multiple phases and grades.
All of the above targets are made available to Line Planner to guide and monitor line-by-line building of the ranges.
