ABOUT YOU’s main challenges in 2019 came from the trap of success. The most pressing issues were:
Rapid business growth and expansion into new markets
Complex business processes due to coexisting different business models (Own Stock, Drop Ship, Fulfillment) and complex flows
High volumes with over 500,000 items and 3,500 brands to manage
The need for speed and flexibility to accommodate more than 45 million unique active users per month
Their old process of Excel spreadsheets was adequate to a point. Their model had an exponentially increasing number of users and process complexity. What’s worse, they were pouring too much time and too many resources into up-front preparation before analyzing and planning even one KPI.
KIVALUE met with ABOUT YOU several times to talk about what would be the best solution, and they found the full-scale implementation of the Retail Planning solution was the best option.
