TXT Retail Planning

The need is clear - Understand the Customer, and deliver precisely to her requirements, that’s the goal for any retailer. Online or in store, from a fulfillment center, or direct from the vendor, through wholesale or franchise, around the corner or around the world, what does it take? Precision Merchandising requires an organized set of processes to all come together seamlessly, from developing merchandising concepts and financial plans, determining assortments, delivering to stores and DC’s, replenishing, repricing and promoting, and at end, clearing the last unit of an item to replace it with newest fashion trend. The traditional approach? Implementing and maintaining an extensive array of systems modifying internal business processes to fit the system designs, and training teams of specialists to operate the software.
At TXT, we call this approach “dated”.

TXT has designed and delivered TXT Retail Planning: a single platform-based solution that covers the entire spectrum of activities required to plan and manage merchandise through every stage of its lifecycle.

With one solution, one technology, one UI, one (simple) learning curve, but covering all the business processes, TXT creates a singular success.

Assortment Planning: Compelling assortments can be created both numerically and visually. Marry customer demographics with product attributes to create effective localized assortments. Plan your product through the driving factors that make sense to your business this season. Select the appropriate time horizons and balance those delivery windows back to your financial objectives

Allocation, Replenishment and Promotions: Realign your assortment plans based on up to date delivery quantities and the most recent trends in store, or balance inventory between fulfillment centers and DC’s. Manage the service levels of products in store through automated replenishment techniques, all flowing seamlessly from your merchandise and assortment plans
