Category Management

Great buying and commercial functions most often have a very strong analytical and commercial finance foundation. Using commercial trends and analytics to set the range framework has been an ongoing trend for over a decade, resulting in the increased use of data and analytics to inform ranging decisions and ongoing trading decisions.

As a supply chain consulting firm, we have taken particular interest in this area as a natural extension to what we do, as the benefits of getting this right cascade through the entire supply chain. Setting the category framework with the use of Commercial planning tools, a considered approach to OTB management and building suitable grading structures are all effective demand and supply solutions because the result is more sales and faster stock turns.
