Item Planning: Item Planning Software for Cross-Channel Retailers

Manhattan Associates’ Item Planning lets you build plan by item, key item, or assortment—by vendor, class or item attribute—and across multiple sales channels. With Item Planning you can plan and forecast sales and inventory requirements in line with changes in demand to maximize margin potential for key items at every stage of the product lifecycle. 

Our Item Planning solution offers powerful attribute planning capabilitiesthat make it easy to incorporate attributes into your planning process and explore “what if” planning scenarios to weigh the benefits of different strategies based on customer preferences. Retailers can determine the optimum product mix across the attributes that matter most to customers. This approach improves sales, turn and inventory management by putting customer preferences in sync with financial targets.

Item Planning is a flexible, easy-to-use solution that allows you to:

  • Micro-manage your key items that contribute the most profit to your business
  • Improve forecast accuracy at item level with built in integration to Manhattan’s Demand Forecasting solution
  • Use attribute planning to gain visibility into customer preferences and react quickly to their changing needs
  • Execute assortment plans to get the right product, at the right price, in the right locations at the right time
  • Rapidly respond to changes in demand and align inventory accordingly to increase sales, margin and sell through.
