Boston Retail Partners’ 2015 Merchandise Planning Survey

According to the Boston Retail Partners’ 2015 Merchandise Planning Survey: ‘Today’s retailers are wrestling with a myriad of business and IT issues. Adding to the already long list, current planning systems are out-of-date and don’t effectively address today’s requirements for an omni-channel planning environment. Most retailers find their current planning applications are ineffective and can’t support the complex analysis required to optimize planning decisions and ultimately meet customer demand. The good news is that most retailers realize this and more than half of retailers are planning to upgrade or replace their planning applications within two years.”
