NRF 2016: TXT Retail and Urban Outfitters to Present at NRF 2016 "BIG !deas Session" on Merchandise Planning for a Global Omni Channel Retailer

MILAN, ITALY--(Marketwired - January 14, 2016) - The session "Planning's Role in Support of a Global, Multi-Brand Omni-Channel Business," will be held on Monday, January 18th at 12:45 and will feature the participation of TXT Retail experts, together with TXT customer Urban Outfitters.

On stage:

  • Christen Sylvester, Dir. Merchandising Systems, Urban Outfitters

  • Peter Charness, SVP North America, Global CMO, TXT Retail

Presentations will discuss the opportunities for optimizing inventory and supporting the modern shopper wherever and however she wants to shop. The session will cover forward thinking and actual experiences of implementing technology supporting the people and process of merchandise planning for fashion and global businesses.

With the customer raising the bar by demanding that product be available to purchase and pick up in any and every channel, traditional merchandise planning solutions have failed to keep up with the need to plan for this more complex omni-channel environment.

"Retailers need to provide compelling assortments, on a localized basis, with inventory deployed across an increasingly complex distribution network in support of 'shop everywhere, deliver or pick up and return anywhere' Customer service model," noted Peter Charness TXT SVP and CMO. "TXT provides the only end to end Merchandise Planning solution that is fundamentally designed to support this complex business model. We are pleased to be sharing success stories with Urban Outfitters to the Retail Community at NRF."
