In May 2017, JustEnough Software announced that Tommy Bahama, an island-inspired lifestyle brand that defines relaxed, sophisticated style in men’s and women’s sportswear, swimwear, accessories, footwear, as well as a complete home furnishings collection, went live with our industry-leading Merchandise Financial Planning solution, which helps top retailers around the world better set sales, margin and inventory targets and manage their open-to-buy budgets.

Although Tommy Bahama began as a wholesale company, over the years it has opened 168 domestic and international retail stores, restaurants and has launched an e-commerce site.

The JustEnough team worked closely with the retailer on the solution design and an implementation timeline to ensure a smooth, on-time installation with minimal disruption to the business.

In our joint announcement, Stacy Plews, Sr. Director DTC Planning at Tommy Bahama, said, “Working with the JustEnough implementation team was a great experience, their expertise and support allowed us to take a spreadsheet based manual process and leverage their technology to deliver consistency in planning and process across product divisions and channels to focus our time on strategically managing our business.

Vans and The North Face

Founded in 1966, Vans has stood for authenticity in youth lifestyle since day one. The manufacturer of apparel, including its iconic shoes and products like t-shirts, hoodies, socks, hats and backpacks, operates nearly 600 retail stores around the world. Vans is also active in the action sports and music industry. The company sponsors skateboard, surf, snow, BMX and motocross teams, and has also been the primary sponsor of the annual Vans Warped Tour traveling rock festival.

The North Face began as a small mountaineering retail store in California in the 1960s. Now, more than 50 years after its humble start, The North Face delivers an extensive line of performance apparel for men and women, equipment and footwear that cater to college students, climbers, mountaineers, skiers, snowboarders, hikers and endurance athletes across the globe.

The companies, both of which belong to the VF Corporation brand portfolio, selected JustEnough Allocation, Inventory Planning, Replenishment, Demand Forecasting and Profiling solutions in 2016. Recently, Vans and The North Face went live with JustEnough Allocation, which leverages allocation rules to model performance criteria and ultimately determine the best placement of stock. The JustEnough solutions will continue to be deployed at both companies over the next year.

Ultimately, the retailer selected JustEnough’s best-in-class Allocation solution to replace a legacy in-house solution. JustEnough Allocation takes current and inbound stock levels into account to ensure inventory is pushed to the optimal store or sales channel, thereby maximizing the stock’s selling potential. The implementation of JustEnough Allocation at Ackermans will begin the summer of 2017.

RIS News

In early May, RIS News published a byline by JustEnough, which offers six strategies to help retailers better improve in-season planning and address exception management variation. Making exception management a critical aspect of their end-to-end planning and execution process gives businesses the ability to understand why an item is selling above or below expectation – and thus avoid the costly pitfalls of having too much or too little stock on hand.

Six Steps to a Seamless Software Implementation

Smart retailers recognize that implementing new software can supercharge their businesses. But they also dread doing it, because they know that the devil is in the details when it comes to introducing unfamiliar technology to their teams and making it part of their infrastructure.


Change is a journey, but a retailer that prepares properly before embarking on it can make sure that the implementation ultimately achieves what it wants. That may mean being able to make in-season adjustments to address new trends or it might be optimizing assortments to improve sales. Therefore, retailers must start by asking themselves: What kind of outcomes do you want to see the software implementation achieve? How small or large in scope should this project be, initially? Do you have the right resources—meaning budget, time, and people—to make this happen right now?

In this newest thought leadership article, JustEnough Software offers six tips to help companies navigate a smooth software implementation. Learn more here.
