A great way to connect your business systems and partners.

The top two business challenges facing retail supply chain executives in this economy are increased lead times for the delivery of merchandise to stores and low inventory turns, according to Aberdeen’s Retail research.

These business challenges can cause higher supply chain costs and lead to lower than average attainment of gross margin return on inventory (GMROI), fill rate, cash conversion cycle, and forecast accuracy.

Optimized Demand Management activities help lower operating costs. Organizations can achieve best-in-class status by automating and integrating Forecasting, Sourcing & Replenishment activities with their suppliers and customers. 

Learn how a Demand-driven Supply Chain Network (DDSN) helps the extended retail enterprise integrate its suppliers & customers to its core Demand Management processes. 

Register for this webcast co-presented by Microsoft and QLOGITEK. This webcast will feature an Enterprise Retail Organization using a DDSN framework and leveraging a Microsoft-based platform to help build a best-in-class retail operation.

Cheers and keep on BizTalking…
