KaDeWe faced formidable challenges with their end-to-end process in 2019. The most pressing issues were:
- Wide merchandise assortments and brands
- Different retail business models within the same store: concessions, own business, and rented spaces
- Low inventory visibility
- Heavy and long process to consolidate and share data and plans
Logistically speaking, the brand’s teams had to keep on top of the supply chain, ordering, budgeting, inventory management, replenishment, and selling. This demanded accurate and continual coordination between suppliers, warehouses, and store staff. After all, the right products must be in the right place at the right time.
After consulting with a variety of software providers, KaDeWe chose KIVALUE. KaDeWe was confident in KIVALUE’s expertise and years of experience developing and implementing software for fashion retailers that faced many complicated and intricate problems.
