3DEXPERIENCE is a catalyst for innovation, enabling any enterprise stakeholder to participate in the innovation process, contributing to drive value for the end consumer.
Merchandise and buyers benefit from a shared view with the development and sourcing organization. Managers can define aesthetic, financial and design goals across brand and sales channels. During the new product introduction phases, dashboards, line boards, catalogs and reporting can alert leadership to out-of-plan offerings and manage by exception.
DS' solution for Merchandise Planning enables channel managers and sales executives to participate early in design decisions and support predictable sales volumes. Having early visibility to assortments enable merchants and store planners to optimize selections for local demographics and tastes. Aligning development plans to merchandise and financial plans enables brands to improve productivity along the delivery cycle. With DS solution, category and store planners can pro-actively manage downstream deliverables and activities. Planning alignment from early category plans across sourcing and vendor capacity enables brands to synchronize their goals and targets for stronger execution and profitability.
