Perfect for "What if...?"
Even compare to benchmarks. All built-in.
Now the fun begins for the merchant in you!
Start to play "What if...?"
- That monthly ending inventory number doesn't look quite right? Okay, change turns. What difference would that make?
- Having second thoughts about reaching those sales numbers in some months? No problem; change expected sales in whatever months you want.
- Gross Margins can be changed each month as well. Need to open up some Open-to-Buy dollars? Which months do you want some special promotions?
See the cause-effect results immediately, each time you change an input.
Plus, for every plan you generate, the SPEEDY Online OTB also projects GMROI. (That's the #1 measure of inventory productivity.)
Now, any retailer, anywhere, can know your Open-to-Buy in minutes, on demand. Automagically!
