Intelligent retail planning transformation at NRF 2023

It’s no real secret that the retail industry is still reeling from the impact left by the pandemic. Decision-making has grown more complex, and planning methodologies are stretched to the breaking point. To overcome these significant challenges, retail organizations must adopt transformative initiatives to unify merchandise planning and operational decisions for faster, data-driven insights. Only in doing so can they plan better, predict more, and support customers in a highly fluctuating market that demands proactivity rather than reactivity.

The time for intelligent retail planning transformation is now.

We’re attending NRF 2023 (Retail’s Big Show) to discuss and showcase Board’s Intelligent retail Planning solutions. Read on to learn more about the event and why Board is the transformative solution retail businesses need to survive.

NRF 2023: Breaking through

This year, the key theme is breaking through – an apt message for an industry that must operate smarter, faster, and more innovatively. We can already see the responses to COVID, with retailers understanding where new priorities lie regarding technology adoption and process refinement. And at the heart of all this is a transformative effort that aligns merchandising, supply chain, and operations. For retailers, knowing where to go is the next step from getting through it to breaking through!

With more than 175 sessions and 350+ speakers, NRF 2023 is truly shaping up to be an influential and important event that all retailers should take note of next year.

Unlock breakthrough performance: the intelligent planning opportunity

Driven by unprecedented levels of volatility and complexity, the gap between plan and reality is growing. For planners, the profitability zone seems to be shrinking by the transaction, day, and ultimately planning cycle.

For breakthrough planning performance, retailers need solutions that add rapid improvements to their bottom-line whilst transforming foundational planning capabilities to future-proof their planning cycles; there are three significant ways in which Board retail solutions both optimize and transform retail planning:

  • Hone profitability, fast: Develop merchandise planning capabilities that better align your customer to the plan; focus assortments, better availability, and offers.
  • Build planning resilience: Broaden scenario planning, dial-up automation, and use new insights and optimization from AI/ML in a planning-friendly mode.
  • New ways of working: Transform your planning through visibility and collaboration.
