Item Planner is the ultimate collaboration tool because both Buyers and Suppliers can work from the same set of numbers and always know where the performance of an item stands - meaning no surprises. -Jim Lewis, Founder & CEO of Enhanced Retail Solutions
New York, NY (PRWEB) April 26, 2016
Enhanced Retail Solutions (ERS), a leading provider of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) retail analytic and demand planning solutions to suppliers, licensors and their retail trading partners, announces a webinar to showcase the newest features and functionality of its Item Planner Software.
Item Planner software was created for planners for their constant need to monitor sales, inventory and profitability of their retail programs. Plans are based on sales and inventory history, seasonality, the promotional cadence and profitability requirements. Users can then track business week by week, watching for trends that effect profitability and taking action to optimize performance. It allows the user to conduct multiple “what if” scenarios to see what effect they could have on results. Unlike a spreadsheet based planning tool, Item Planner has smart features that reduce manual entry, copy/paste/vlookup headaches and sharing issues. Many new features were added as ERS transformed its legacy desktop application to a browser based, SaaS version.
The software is integrated with ERS’ ad-hoc reporting tool and allow users to format its output in reports exactly the way they need them to be. This includes picking from column fields, reporting level (ex: item, style, brand, etc.), time periods and create key comparisons such as This Year Plan vs. Last Year, Weekly and Cumulative Sell Through, This Year Actual vs. This Year Plan and Last Year, and Receipt Planning.
"Item Planner is the ultimate collaboration tool because both Buyers and Suppliers can work from the same set of numbers and always know where the performance of an item stands - meaning no surprises” says Jim Lewis, founder and CEO of Enhanced Retail Solutions. “Both can track plan versus actual every week and revise plans in-season to reflect reality. We are very excited to demonstrate its deep feature set.”
The Webinar will be held on Thursday, May 19th at 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM ET.
