Intelligent Line Planning with Solvoyo

Line planning (Range Planning) is the process of determining the number of products that will be sold in the future and specifying them by attributes so that design teams can focus their efforts on the specific needs identified by merchandisers or category managers.  This is an important step for Retail Planning and is crucial for fashion who constantly develop or source new products.  Often this part of the process is managed through manual analysis of sales performance of existing products and slicing the sales data along different dimensions or product attributes such as price bands. In the case of fashion products analysis gets more complex as product attributes such as the color group, print type, arm length, neckline, fabric type, etc. need to be considered. Solvoyo’s line planning solution makes this process easier and faster by automating the line analysis process through consolidating data from different sources including competitor collections and combines analysis and planning steps into one which improves productivity, reduces error, improves visibility to metrics and the reasons behind the decisions being made.

Solvoyo Line Planning, a cloud-based,  user-friendly and configurable UI brings automation to product and line analysis and standardizes the planning process. Financial metrics combined with product visuals helps identify best and worst-performers and can also provide recommendations on how to split the future collections along attributes such as price bands, shapes, color groups, etc. This solution saves time by consolidating data from multiple sources so planners can compare the financial metrics, option counts, stock investment for different slices of the collection. External data can easily be incorporated into the solution as well so planners can track how the key competitors have positioned their offering along price bands and product attributes. Store capacities can be easily incorporated into the analysis and planning steps as well.
