Retailers see tremendous value in gaining deep, detailed visibility into their supply chain.
New York, NY (PRWEB) January 13, 2014
QuantiSense, Inc., a leading provider of retail business intelligence and retail analytics software & services, today announced the release of the QuantiSense Supply Chain & Logistics analytics application.
With QuantiSense software, retailers can now analyze and track the flow of merchandise from manufacturer to distribution center (DC) to store, leveraging a unified picture of supply chain data with merchandising, store operations, customer insights, e-commerce analytics and more, to give retail professionals a powerful, enterprise-wide view of how the flow of specific merchandise affects the customer experience.
With the new insights delivered by QuantiSense Supply Chain & Logistics, retailers can proactively address potential disruptions or opportunities in the supply chain, and take immediate action to remedy or capitalize on them.
The solution is currently in implementation with two major North American retailers, featuring integration with the Manhattan Associates warehouse management system (WMS).
“Retailers see tremendous value in gaining deep, detailed visibility into their supply chain,” said Jeff Buck, CEO of QuantiSense. “QuantiSense Supply Chain & Logistics lets retailers use supply chain visibility to make better decisions about merchandise management, promotions, events, store staffing, the omni-channel experience and more, ensuring that customers always get the items and service they want and expect.”
An Integrated View of the Entire Supply Chain
Traditionally, the retail supply chain is broken into two distinct silos: the “back-office” supply chain encompassing the flow of goods between manufacturers, wholesalers and the retailer’s DCs, and the customer-facing supply chain encompassing merchandise management, e-commerce & catalog, stores, and consumers.
With key data spread across multiple systems, buyers, planners, allocators, store operations and marketers often struggle to get detailed visibility into the entire supply chain to answer questions like:
- When will the items we’re heavily promoting arrive in-store?
- On what days should I increase store staffing to receive a large merchandise shipment?
- Can I commit to a specific date for shipping backordered e-commerce or catalog items directly to my consumers?
- When should I invite my best customers back to the store to see new merchandise?
- Should I airship merchandise to capitalize on an immediate selling opportunity to my best customers?
With QuantiSense Supply Chain & Logistics, all supply chain data is merged. Any retail decision-maker within the enterprise can now gain a comprehensive view of the status, timing, value and demand for merchandise, wherever it resides, helping drive new revenue, margin and customer satisfaction.
