Markdown

Clear inventory as profitably as possible while balancing shopper demand in one tool that covers your entire assortment, both softlines and hardlines. Retailers are enabled to optimize their markdown plan with dramatically improved markdown cadences, timing and depths.

“Now we take a scientific approach to pricing rather than relying on individuals’ beliefs or assumptions.”

The New Markdown Landscape

Markdowns are becoming increasingly more complex no matter the retail vertical. Channel disruption, rapidly expanding and localized assortments, competition and category killers, changing consumer tastes – the list goes on. Markdown plans must be optimal and agile to keep up with this ever-evolving retail environment.
