Tilly's deploys SAS Size Profiling as a managed solution

Jan '10
Tilly's, a leading specialty retailer, has deployed SAS Size Profiling as a managed solution to better evaluate store-level style-specific demand by size. SAS, the leader in business analytics, is the only software vendor to currently offer size profiling customers the choice of either a managed solution or licensed software for behind-the-firewall deployment.

Licensing software for behind-the-firewall deployment offers retailers different benefits than a managed or hosted model. Think of these deployment models in terms of leasing v. buying a car: a managed solution is like leasing a car with services included and leveraging others' expertise for maintenance and repairs. Licensed software for behind-the-firewall deployment is more like a customer buying a car and maintaining it independently, which may mean a lower long-term cost of ownership.

“Having SAS host this solution was an efficient way to deploy this important capability,” said Craig DeMerit, Tilly's CIO. “It is great for us to be able to rely on SAS for the implementation and ongoing support, because they know the software better than anyone else.”

“We may have been missing opportunities with earlier processes that were far less precise and with SAS, I firmly believe we can improve size profile accuracy,” DeMerit continued. “We looked hard at SAS and competitive solutions. The SAS Retail team, by far, delivered the best combination of powerful analytics, an innovative licensing and support model, and retail domain expertise.”

SAS retail solutions are particularly effective in the current economy as retailers seek to optimize inventory, capital and profits. “We're seeing innovative retailers invest in SAS to affect the bottom line and increase top-line growth,” said Gene Gsell, SAS Retail General Manager. “Those investing strategically in this market win now, and will continue to win in the future.”

What does SAS Size Profiling do for retailers?

SAS Size Profiling's best-in-class analytics transform historical sales data into accurate projections of future demand by size. Integrated with existing merchandising systems, this intelligence is applied to purchasing and allocation workflows delivering optimal, store-specific size profiles that match local demand. Both pre-season and in-season profiling are systematized through an intuitive user interface and automated workflow. SAS Size Profiling combined with SAS Pack Optimization makes up SAS Size Optimization.
