Calvin Hollinger, Chief Administrative Officer of Urban Outfitters, Inc. said: "The rapid international and multichannel growth we are experiencing creates new levels of complexity from a planning and assortment standpoint. We need a solution to help us accurately plan inventory across our many product categories, channels and growing international business, then translate that demand into effective buying, merchandise and assortment plans. TXT can provide those capabilities within one integrated solution."
TXT Integrated Retail Planning will help Urban Outfitters, Inc. manage the whole spectrum of their retail planning processes: Strategic, Merchandise Planning, Store Grading, Open to Buy (OTB) and Assortment Planning both pre-season and in-season. Planning teams will create and manage their planning processes and OTB across the brands and channels at various levels as required within each brand.
