iKIS provides fashion forecasting and allocation with more than 14 different algorithms to support the fashion business at a skuloc level. iKIS Allocation tools can use hundreds of custom rules in Mass Maintenance, enabling users to allocate the right products in the right quantity on the shelf at the right location. Rolling the data up into effective plans for assortment and tracking delivers the user details and accuracy at a level previously unknown in a solution that’s 1/10 the price of the competition.
Buyers and Category managers need product/location forecasting and allocations at the store, style, color, and size (UPC or Skuloc) levels. Instead of marking down the ‘leftover’ quantity of the wrong sizes and losing the sales where you ran out of the right sizes, you could have sold the right products, raising sales and gross margin. Attempting to manage sales with a plan at category and level will not meet the demand of the individual customer. Bad buying and poor allocations cost money in lost sales, markdowns, and consumer opinion. See how iKIS can help ‘Tighten the Links in Your Chain™.’
