Collaborating with Retailers to Create World-Class Planning and Execution

In the retail industry, the supply-demand chain is complex and the lines between “seller” and “producer” are blurring. Retailers often lack a common view of merchandise across all its businesses, channels and brands. As a result, the processes and technologies for allocation and replenishment are inconsistent; forecasting is inaccurate; and inventory is poorly accounted for and excessive.

Capgemini’s Integrated Planning & Execution (IP&E) model addresses these business issues by integrating production, merchandising and logistics to�enable a “pull” business model.��
