A Healthy Approach to Retailing

Banner img

OnWindows recently spoke to Ray Aldis of Holland & Barrett International to find out why he expects JustEnough’s Promotion Management solution will transform the way it manages promotional campaigns and inventory forecasting.

Here are some highlights of the interview. Click here to read the full article.

Holland & Barrett is a familiar sight in almost every major city and town in the UK and Republic of Ireland, as well as several other European countries. Hundreds of its 3,000 health and beauty products are regularly available on various promotions throughout the year. "Promotions are the lifeblood of Holland & Barrett’s business and circa 60% of our sales come from these campaigns,” says Ray Aldis, the company’s director of projects."

Although increasing the frequency of promotional campaigns and introducing new types of offer helped Holland & Barrett to secure significant return on investment, Aldis notes that the physical act of managing so many campaigns from its UK corporate headquarters was becoming almost impossible. "We were using 45 separate spreadsheets to manage all of these promotional campaigns and inevitably, this led to inaccurate information and data conflicts," Aldis explains.

To gain better control of its promotional campaigns, Holland & Barrett rolled out JustEnough Software’s Promotion Management solution in October 2015.

"JustEnough’s software is the best-in-class promotion management solution; it’s highly configurable and we were able to quickly tweak or add functionalities to ensure it would meet our specific operational requirements,” Aldis enthuses. “We’ve been impressed by the solution’s ability to help us decide which products should be promoted, where they should be displayed in stores and how to optimize associated signage and advertising campaigns."
