Sports Direct – Improving Planning and Performance
Sports Direct are the leading sports retailer for apparel, shoes and equipment.
We were engaged to provide a top down, collaborative planning solution to help the buying team collaborate and fulfil customer demand, whilst simultaneously managing not over ordering and carrying too much stock.
We implemented an IBM Planning Analytics solution in the Cloud, to allow remote teams of buyers to ensure that the correct levels of stock were ordered to meet the approved company budgets, across a very broad range of product classes, from football boots to homewares!
As a result, the buying budgets are now aligned across the business, and the teams are working to a common goal. Stock levels are much improved, and trading performance has benefitted from less forced stock clearance, resulting in saving money for the company.View all our work
