The multichannel, vertically integrated tool harmonizes wholesale, retail and manufacturing processes within one back-end software system. The latest version brings most processes that are core to apparel and footwear companies to the SAP for Retail software portfolio, based on standard SAP ERP (enterprise resource planning) software built on the SAP HANA platform. The update allows for shared planning, common sourcing, and buying and manufacturing across all channels. It features multichannel-enabled material requirements planning and available-to-promise functions, which also handle stock segmentation. A production control workbench can be used to group planned orders and production orders into a single master order, containing multiple variants. The application also supports inventory strategies such as stock segmentation and stock pooling, to help reduce overstocks, markdowns and stockouts.
