4R Systems, Inc. Launches Seasonal Allocation 2.0 Solution

4R Systems, Inc. announced Seasonal Allocation 2.0 Solution is now in general availability. Seasonal Allocation offers retailers a cloud-based suite of tools to manage the allocation of short seasonal products through their entire lifecycle, from initial pre-season allocation through to post-season analysis. Seasonal Allocation clients can define and configure seasons, customize the demand profile for each SKU, manage initial and weekly store allocations, and review season performance during and after the season, all via a web-based graphical user interface. The Seasonal Allocation forecasting engine blends multiple components in different weights during the season to maximize accuracy. It then applies a proprietary optimization algorithm to produce allocations that balance the risk of stock outs against the cost of stranded inventory at each week of the season. The company offered Seasonal Allocation to a limited group of retail clients in 2015. After verified profit improvements in each case, the company is offering the solution to any retailer challenged to maximize profit opportunity from seasonal and fashion inventory. Seasonal Allocation Solution 2.0 delivers four key advantages over traditional retail allocation solutions: The web interface provides tools to assign seasonality profiles at any level of the SKU hierarchy, using historical profiles or creating new ones, to best model expected demand. The forecasting engine blends multiple components in different weights during the season to maximize accuracy. The store allocations are calculated to maximize the profit of each item, including support for case packs and prepacks. The solution is cloud based, minimizing the initial investment and providing a return-on-investment in months, not years.
