Fix the OOS Problem at its source.
One of the biggest reasons our inventory optimization solutions work so well is that they are store-based…by design. Why? Because that’s where the problems, and the solutions, exists.
Retailers often blame the DC or their vendors for causing item unavailability. But, in truth and by study, it’s been shown that the overwhelming majority of the issues are caused by mistakes made in the store. And, by OVERWHELMING we mean 98%. That’s clearly not a small number. The level of what you solve at the store is almost then the same level of the ENTIRE PROBLEM.
