Seven ways retail merchandising makes fiscal compliance easier
Choose a retail merchandising solution that provides a foundation for innovation, supports global operations, and can adapt as your business changes.
Use one central source for retail merchandising information. Gain visibility and accurate perpetual inventory to drive decisions on fulfillment, replenishment, allocation, sales auditing, trade management, and pricing. Provide users with point-of-sales information for discrepancy resolution.
Ensure business agility with multivertical, multicountry, and multiformat support. Enable robust supplier deal management with a seamless process from negotiation to collection.
Evaluate sales transactions from all channels to identify missing, duplicate, or erroneous data to ensure quick resolution before it’s passed to downstream systems.
Integrate with Oracle Retail’s solutions for supply chain, planning, omnichannel, and financials for robust functionality that facilitates end-to-end process execution.
Manage the matching, reconciliation, and payment of supplier invoices with a configurable automated solution. Define the level at which matching occurs for a supplier—from a single purchase order to multiple purchase orders or locations.
Increase productivity by reducing manual processes and improve supplier payment cycles via automation and workflow.
Configure parameters in alignment with company policies and supplier agreements to promote matching compliance and efficient resolution.
Integrate with Oracle Retail Merchandising Foundation and financial solutions to gain complete visibility and ensure the collection of funds owed.
Create an allocation that reduces the likelihood of overstocks and future markdowns. Sophisticated algorithms determine how to spread the available inventory across all locations.
Determine individual store need based on metrics that fit the product, store characteristics, and product lifecycle for allocation.
Base allocation on different hierarchy levels, item groups, or a single item, and on orders, ASNs, transfers, BOLs, or stock on hand. Allocation needs can be determined based on manual input, historical data, plan information, demand forecasts, or a combination of plan information and history, which compares actual sales to plan information and reforecasts based on actual performance in season.
Support for regular, promotional, and clearance pricing across all touchpoints.
Enable users to make information-pricing decisions by providing visibility to cost, current price, and margin as well as upcoming price events, key item, and inventory data.
Ensure pricing structures adhere to company procedures using defined price points, and clear seasonal merchandise quickly and efficiently by applying automated processes.
