With Oracle Retail cloud services merchandise financial planning, assortment and item planning, Prada will optimise its merchandising process including sales and forecasts, performance analysis, margin, open to buy, inventory management, supply chain, and inventory allocation. Implementing this solution will lead to a more informed analysis of Prada’s KPIs and a greater ability to set new targets and allocate more precise budgets, Oracle said in a press release.
Prada will also be able to strengthen its customer relations at the point of purchase with Oracle Retail customer engagement cloud service and Oracle Retail xstore point of service. The two solutions will provide real-time visibility into all customer-related details across every touch point, offering a personalised shopping experience.

Our collaboration with Oracle is part of our wider strategy focused on enhancing our group with a strong investment in technology to boost operational efficiency and effectiveness,” said Lorenzo Bertelli, Prada group head of marketing and communication.
