Business Need: A leading international retailer was facing increasing operational challenges: A growing set of global locations and customers; sourcing its merchandize from a large number of suppliers globally; a rapid increase in online sales.
Our Client is a fast growing international retailer, with a growing set of global locations and customers. The company is based in the Netherlands, with offices and locations in Europe, Asia, North and South America, and Australia. With revenues exceeding 3 billion dollars, this company is on a fast track to become a global powerhouse in retail.
The Project: Perint's team of retail-supply chain experts, uncovered several opportunities in the evaluation stage of this project.
Perint's consultants recommended drastic changes to the client's supply-chain- management approach. The product range was divided into segments such as core products, seasonal products, and trend-driven items. The segmentation helped shape recommendations for a more flexible supply- chain effort.
Direct Impact: Achieving these supply-chain efficiency improvements resulted in net margin increase of more than 5 percentage points.
