  • Your stock demand and replenishment.
  • Your current inventory with an eye to maximize your returns.
  • A full evaluation of your supply chain.

Pain Points

When our retail supply chain management consultants visit your business, they look for:

Through logistic consultancy, we evaluate your processes, systems and products to look for areas of improvement, and influence your forecasting over the long term.

Bloated and Aged Inventory

By reviewing your current inventory, our supply chain consulting network can focus on the release of working capital by putting the right systems and processes in place to ensure you have the right stock in the right place at the right time. Due to our extensive global networks and contact lists, we can also help in the offshoring of aged inventory to ensure any possible write-downs you need to create the minimum impact and maximum return.

  • What systems do you have in place? Are they effective?
  • What is the current state of your aged inventory?
  •  What write-down opportunities can be leveraged?

Inventory Management

By looking at your stock receiving and rotation processes including your “FIFO” principles, we ensure that your stock is moving and turning in the most efficient manner and that we’re maximizing your in-store availability % at all times.

  • What are your current inventory turns?
  • What is your current in-store availability %?

Accessories & Wearables

We can help you influence revenue increases through proactive accessory programs, increasing attachment rates in wearables and other technologies that are coming to the forefront. By reviewing your current business model in this area, we can help you find sale/return and consignment model partners to help you grow this area and provide the maximum customer experience which can enhance your supply chain management.

  • What is your current business model?
