Challenges in Retail

We know you try to reach the optimum and most efficient use of valuable resources, whether these are people, products or other assets. But on your journey meeting the objectives, we also know you will have to battle with these core challenges:

  • Short delivery windows
  • Demand profile (morning, noon, evening)
  • Lead-Times
  • Products to be delivered
  • Capacity
  • Delivery Location

The planner is responsible for creating a plan, and hence the planner should always be in control. In our view, the first step is to create an environment in which the planner will have full transparency as to the current state of the planning. Time consuming tasks will be automated so that the planner can focus on the actual decision-making process.

Let Ab Ovo help you with your planning challenges. We will help you solve these puzzles and ensure you take the right planning decisions.
