Don't have any history on the new SKU and need to introduce it into the market?
Testing correctly is critical to profitability.
- We identify the ideal stores in which to perform the test by analyzing the performance and behavior of similar products across a retail chain.
- We also cluster stores based on sales mix and demographic data to more accurately assort and allocate SKU's.
- We allow retailers to effectively test new products and ultimately order the appropriate quantities of product in their initial buy, optimizing sales for the season, while maximizing the exposure the to over-stocking and closeout expense.
- Finally, we generate a base line forecast for the new products in the test stores, which is used at the conclusion of the test, to compare the against the actual test results, to generate a forecast of the products performance across the entire chain for the season.
