Merchandising & Supply Chain Planning

There are two foundational business capabilities in Retail that determine the ability to compete: Merchandising and Supply Chain. Merchandising gets the customers and Supply Chain gets the products. Now add in unpredictable seasons, finicky customers, and a volatile economy. These make it challenging for Retailers to meet the expectations of customers by providing the right product, in the right place and at the right price.
