Thirty-One Gifts announce they have chosen TXT MAPLE LAKE to assist in managing their retail processes. Using TXT’s integrated retail planning solution, TXT will manage the whole spectrum of Thirty-One’s forecasting, merchandise, assortment and inventory management.

Thirty-One Gifts is one of America’s largest direct-selling companies. They offer products that work with everyone’s lifestyle, from stylish and functional purses and totes to home organization solutions and much more, most of which can be personalized. The company is headquartered in Columbus, Ohio, with more than 1,800 employees and more than 135,000 independent sales consultants in the U.S. and Ontario.

Thirty-One has experienced rapid growth during their 10-year history. TXT and their integrated retail planning solution were selected due to their ability to apply systems that can accommodate Thirty-One’s growth. The company expects to benefit from a more standardized planning process, reduced inventory costs, improved merchandising and assortment planning capabilities, and improved visibility and reporting across the business.
