Irvine, Calif. – Dec 6, 2016 - JustEnough Software Corporation, a leading provider of demand management solutions for retail, wholesale and direct-to-consumer businesses worldwide, today announced a new version of its industry leading Assortment Planning solution. New capabilities introduced today help retailers move from seasonal planning to continuous omni-channel assortment planning so they can keep ahead of fast-changing customer preferences and demand.
Traditional seasonal retail planning has come under pressure in today’s world of always connected, unpredictable and demanding consumers that expect to find what they want, whenever they want it. To survive in this age of the customer, retailers must be able to anticipate demand and sense and respond to changing demand patterns. Many are working to replace seasonal planning and one-time buys with planning that continuously adjusts to demand shifts and emerging trends and uses more frequent buys. The result is more flexible assortments that engage and delight customers.
New capabilities of JustEnough Assortment Planning that support omni-channel, continuous planning include:
- Dynamic Clustering for Cross-Channel Assorting: Creates clusters based on key measures and attributes and then dynamically shifts the makeup of clusters based on relevant seasonal shopping patterns. The result is highly targeted assortment plans that address localized shopper needs across all stores and channels without planning assortments at the individual store level.
