TXT Retail, an Aptos Company, has announced that premium sports footwear and apparel retailer, The Finish Line, Inc., has successfully implemented the TXT Retail merchandise planning solution. With this roll-out, the retailer gains world-class merchandise financial planning across its 950 locations in the United States and its digital channels.

The TXT Retail merchandise planning solution supports Finish Line to set its global targets for all products, brands and channels they serve, while harmonising buying decisions to expected demand. As the season progresses, the solution helps to easily simulate and make course corrections to keep a firm handle on the achievement of margin and inventory investment targets. Finish Line is also using the TXT Retail application to support collaborative planning with key vendors.

The first phase of the Finish Line deployment was completed in October 2017 and included all aspects of merchandise financial planning, including strategic planning, preseason financial planning, in-season forecasting, and open-to-buy management. With this successful roll-out, Finish Line established one version of the truth across its organisation and created a starting point for assortment plans by location.

During the next project phase, Finish Line is focusing on store planning and clustering, key item planning, and assortment strategy to create customer-focused assortments that meet localised demand. For its TXT Retail implementations, Finish Line is leveraging the TXT AgileFit deployment methodology, which allows the project to be delivered on extremely tight timelines.

Brad Eckhart, senior vice president, planning & allocation, Finish Line said, “By partnering with TXT Retail, Finish Line has advanced our merchandising processes to better serve our customers. The use of TXT Retail’s industry-leading solution supports our objective to provide seamless customer experiences and the best, localised product selection to our shoppers. At the same time, we have optimised our inventory investment to deliver the most profitable product mixes.”

Simone Pozzi, general manager at TXT Retail said, “We are proud to work with a visionary company such as Finish Line in this innovative omni-channel project and of the results achieved so far. TXT Retail serves the needs of tier-1 retailers with advanced functionality while its proven agile deployment methodology accelerates productivity and benefits in a sector where time is of the essence.” (GK)
