MID Retail Inc. today announced that The Orvis Company has selected its Advanced Allocation software to intelligently manage the flow of merchandise to its retail stores.
After reviewing a number of different software options, Orvis selected MID’s Advanced Allocation software based on its robust functionality and proven technology.
“MID Retail’s Advanced Allocation software will help keep us ‘in-stock’ on the items our customers want,” said Julie Cheney, Director of Planning and Allocation for Orvis. “The MID solution enables us to accurately control our inventory position while improving customer satisfaction.”
With MID Advanced Allocation, shoppers are more likely to find the items they are looking for, resulting in improved sales and customer satisfaction.

Fully automated workflows enable retailers to maintain ideal store inventory levels with minimal manual intervention from their planning and allocation teams.
