Board International, the Intelligent Planning Platform provider, today announced that luxury fashion house Missoni has selected Board for allocation and replenishment.
Missoni is an Italian luxury fashion house based in Varese, and is known for its colorful knitwear designs. The company was founded by Ottavio and Rosita Missoni in 1953 and is now one of the most renowned luxury brands, both in Italy and worldwide.
In recent years, Missoni’s retail network has gained increased importance within the company’s sales strategy. For this reason, the retailer needed to introduce a structured process capable of managing store inventory restocking from warehouses and transferring goods between stores.
Missoni selected Board to transform the brand’s global planning process across initial allocation, target stock levels, replenishment and returns, store transfers, and assortment planning to ensure the right stock is available in the right place at the right time.
Missoni chose Board’s intelligent planning platform not only because it covered all of the retailer’s planning and analysis requirements, but also based on Board’s user-friendly interface, seamless integration with Office 365, and fast implementation time with an agile and modular approach.
“The ability to optimize stock, inventory, allocation, and replenishment is crucial for retail success,” said Mauro Bertoletti, Managing Director for Southern Europe at Board International. “We are delighted to be helping Missoni optimize its inventory with our proven retail decision-making expertise in merchandise planning.”
