Increase Sales and Margins Through Improved Allocation Efficiency and Accuracy

Zebra Prescriptive Analytics is an essential tool for merchandisers, buyers, allocators and planners. The robust AI- and machine learning-powered analysis points you directly to opportunities to optimize inventory and localization, increase forecast accuracy, maximize availability and ensure planogram compliance for an exceptional customer experience.

  • Maximize Availability

    Zebra Prescriptive Analytics helped a retailer capitalize on a demand surge after a regional soccer team won a championship. The solution directed all stores surrounding the region to transfer their stock of the team’s branded apparel to stores within the team’s region. The sales streak brought in over $20,000.

  • Increase Sales

    A shoe retailer leveraged Zebra Prescriptive Analytics to find sales opportunities for its excess summer sandals. The solution directed the retailer’s allocators to transfer the unsold sandals to stores in cold-winter states, where customers bought them for holiday vacations. The retailer saw a large revenue increase.

  • Drive Compliance

    A clothing chain leveraged Zebra Prescriptive Analytics to flag stores whose markdowns showed no sales increases. The solution found hundreds of stores meeting the criteria, revealing annual losses of $1 million due to markdown non-compliance and fraud. Corrective action is ongoing.
