Last month at the premier RetailTechANZ 2016 conference in Queensland, AU, Beacon Lighting’s CFO, David Speirs and JustEnough’s Greg Manson, presented to a packed audience, “The Journey to Integrated Retail Planning.” Beacon Lighting is Australia’s premier lighting and fan retailer with more than 90 stores across the country.
The presentation explored Beacon’s path to moving to an integrated retail planning system to drive real business benefits. Mr. Speirs explained that as Beacon Lighting continued to grow and its business became more complex, they realized they needed a modern, integrated forecasting and replenishment system. They found a great fit with JustEnough and in September 2015, began rolling out JustEnough Replenishment and Allocation solutions to its stores. The result? Beacon Lighting achieved real benefits - fast - including increased comparative sales, improved stock position and many productivity improvements.
“Retail has changed dramatically in recent years, presenting new challenges for retailers,” said Greg Manson, sales director for Africa and Asia Pacific, JustEnough. “Beacon Lighting, in partnership with JustEnough, has been able to hurdle these challenges by implementing a truly integrated planning system to bring about positive changes in their processes and to realize their financial and business objectives.”
RetailTechANZ, an exclusive and invitation-only event, is a closed forum for the sharpest minds in the industry to connect and discuss shared challenges, as well as network, build lasting relationships and meet potential partners.
