ÅHLÉNS RAPID MFP IMPLEMENTATION
“To be the preferred shopping destination, we need to be able to understand customer demand and market changes and quickly execute on our merchandising and financial plans so that our discerning customers get the right product, at the right time, at their preferred stores, for the right price”, said Nina Junehed, Administrative Purchasing Director for Åhléns. “SkillNet is the right partner for this.”
Undergoing a large scale transformation with the Oracle Retail merchandising platform, Åhléns, a leading swedish-based retailer, selected SkillNet as its strategic partner to implement the Merchandise Financial Planning (MFP) portion of its new merchandising suite. SkillNet’s Rapid Implementation Merchandising and Planning Solution for MFP was a key variable in successfully landing the account.
Focused on delivering an agile project, SkillNet’s team of MFP consultants in Europe integrated MFP to Åhléns’ existing systems and processes. As a result of this implementation, Åhléns is reaping the benefits of automated financial planning of short term and long term inventory at a categorical level in their stores—a task that previously required manual completion.
