Planning for the Retail Renaissance
4 New requirements to profit in the future

Clearly it's not the best of times for traditional Retailers who face a sea change in business: store closures, Amazon’s accelerating dominance of the online market and wholesale changes in the customers shopping habits. Like any major structural business change, there will be winners and losers but in the end there will be a Renaissance for those who can adapt to the forthcoming “new normal”. 4 trends are early indicators as to the new retail requirements to prosper in the future.

  • The acceptance of fast fashion techniques and a laser focus on customer based assortments for all types of Retailers
  • The emergence of the Fulfilment Chain as a competitive advantage
  • Determining the best ways to plan and manage inventory, single pools, separate inventories or hybrid techniques
  • Optimizing the organization and business processes of the merchandise office with an emphasis on agility and collaboration

Thinking Retail Forums will be the right place to discuss this topic, learn from TXT Retail Customer experiences, network with Retail experts and prepare for the future.
