The smart platform
for retail merchandising
Data-driven decisions for better, faster merchandising processes
The result? Agility at every step.
Increase product availability online and capture sales across channels
- Dynamic Buffers
- Store to web
Avoid siloed stock through dynamic buffers. Determine and distribute the required volume for online and physical channels on a daily basis.
Re-assign products back to the online warehouses with predictive analytics to maximize product availability across ecommerce platforms (internal and marketplaces). Reconsider all the stock and stores across the network and avoid simplifications.
Anticipate demand: always enough, never too much
Support the expertise of your buyers. Nextail helps them buy the right amount of new products by anticipating local demand. Mid-term, bottom-up forecasts at SKU-level ensure that their buying decisions are 80% data and 20% intuition, not the other way around.
First Allocation & Replenishment
Full sales potential all season: the right items, in the right place
- First Allocation
Allocate the right amount of initial units, at SKU level, across all of your channels and locations. Since you can anticipate demand at each location, you can avoid overstocking while keeping more units available in your warehouse for tactical distribution later.
Unify your online and offline stock through dynamic reservations of inventory in your warehouse. With the freshest data every morning, you can be proactive, assigning units in your warehouse to the stores with the highest selling probability rather than to clusters (size, location, etc.)
Prolong full-price sales: Transfer units within your network
Now you can maximize full-price sales, even up to the end of a product's lifecycle. With Nextail, you can see exactly how to move stock among stores to reduce overstock and consolidate broken size sets within your network. The best part? It takes minutes - not days.
Promotions & Events
Prepare your channels to capture the full potential of promotions and other events
Adjust your stock levels to capture all demand driven by promotions and events through advanced elasticity forecasting. Measure real elasticities to improve and prepare future promotions, and recalculate demand baselines to readjust coverage levels after events.
Empower company-wide decisions: Insights you can act on
- Business intelligence
- Store App
You'll have retail-specific, flexible and granular insights so that you can use your data like never before. Nextail doesn't churn out reports, it integrates these insights back into your systems so that your tasks are ready for execution. And since your data is available on a centralized platform, all levels of your organization can stay informed.
Empower store staff with more time and access to key store and product information. They'll be able to monitor store performance and carry out tasks even faster thanks to features like mobile scanning.
