Planning Solutions for Retail

Planning effectively for your merchandise and your business is a significant aspect behind your likely success. This means ensuring the availability of the right goods in the right quantities at the right place and making sure that the turnover of your square meters is performing in line with or indeed bettering your budget. BudgetFlow is a user friendly method by which you can translate your ideas based on results and forecast the planning of stores/departments/shop areas and/or articlegroups. Thanks to the Excel-interface, your planning will never have been so easy and together with M.A.R.S. (our Bl-tool) this also applies to your budgeting, because realisation figures are always immediate available.

How you will benefit from using BudgetFlow:

Integration and overview of your Retail operation
The major benefit of BudgetFlow is the full integration with your merchandise solution. This way, plans and realisation are measured, followed up and managed. This solution will provide your retail operation with an actual status of your purchasing, sales and stock planning from whichever point you have planned it and at whichever point in time you need it.

Flexible rules for planning and budgeting
BudgetFlow delivers you considerable possibilities for planning. These include planning relating to articlegroup, supplier and the store combined with time periods (Year, Month etc.) and even store space and store departments. BudgetFlow will empower you to use quantity and value based planning and facilitates the possibility of planning alternatives and scenarios. At any point in time, you can make a selection regarding your planning variables (e.g.from/to supplier number and/or time period).

Optimising your sales, purchases and stock levels
By providing you with the possibility of making your plans at the lowest level (e.g.month), BudgetFlow delivers you plans based on the last period, current stock and sales levels.
