Initial allocation

Optimise your first inventory based on sales data

You will be familiar with it. Your merchandiser sends as much stock as possible to the stores, so that as little as possible stays behind in the distribution centre or warehouse. Unfortunately, this often means that you have to redistribute your stock later.

Smart Supply does not immediately send all stock from the distribution centre to the stores. After an initial allocation, the software uses an algorithm to determine the highest sales potential per SKU (Stock Keeping Unit) for each location. The stock will be distributed to the stores at which the demand for the product is the greatest.

Not one-on-one replenishment but a dynamic process. This means that you improve your product availability, increase your profit margin, reduce excess inventory and have fewer missed sales. But how does Smart Supply work? Find out below.

Up-to-date customised advice 

No unnecessary redistribution 

Fewer lost sales 

Get more out of your inventory

Do you struggle with allocating your initial inventory at the beginning of a season for your stores or customers? With the ‘initial allocation’ module from Smart Supply you can easily automate this process. Based on the realised sales data of other (comparable) article groups, you can get customised advice on quantities per size to optimise the first allocation run. This means that from the very first delivery, size curves will match the current sales results from the respective store.

Smart-size your initial inventory 

Every location has a unique demand profile. Your inventory is aligned with the demand from your customers. The result? Better sales numbers and lower costs during the season from redistributing the inventory.
