Speciality Retailer


sofco, a leading provider of integrated and collaborative End-to-End Planning Solutions for the Consumer Goods, Manufacturing and Retail sectors, are delighted to announce, another customer has gone live with sofco Demand Planning WSSI (Weekly Sales, Stock and Intake) application using their existing Cloud Architecture. This speciality retailer who operates more than 2,800 stores worldwide under iconic brand names, now efficiently manages stock based on a sales forecast, actual sales and stock information.

The previous solution relied on Excel spreadsheets that had been manually created and were prone to error and did not fulfil all their planning requirements. sofco Demand Planning WSSI allows the automatic import of data from multiple data sources and has the ability to allow aggregations and data management at all levels of the Hierarchies. The customer’s processes are now fully supported allowing the integrated planning and reporting of all aspects of the retail planning, review, and reporting process. Full archiving on a weekly basis and data exports to the business BI solution are also provided allowing the continuing use of legacy programs and processes whilst allowing the business to plan forward for further improvements.

They can now maximise sales by ensuring stock levels are effectively controlled and optimised, while managing their inventory based on sales forecasting, actual sales and stock information.
