DALLAS, TX—February 18, 2021 - John Galt Solutions, automating supply chain planning to empower business leaders to make better decisions faster, today announced Randa Apparel & Accessories, a global manufacturer and distributor of apparel and accessories serving over 20,000 stores across the world, has achieved impressive results with the John Galt Atlas Planning Platform. Today Randa is able to improve collaboration, increase visibility for strategic decision making and optimize their inventory investment across their portfolio of over 50 global brands such as Dockers, Hanes, Levi’s and Columbia Sportswear.
Randa manages an expansive global network of retail and brand partners across multiple channels including retail and e-commerce. The company’s merchandise is available in a wide range of styles, shapes, and sizes to fit the needs of its diverse customers such as Amazon, Walmart, Nordstrom and Kohls. For Randa, one of their challenges is to optimize their inventory and maintain customer service levels while managing thousands of unique items associated to each unique retailer where each product has a specific retail tag attached. Randa turned to John Galt’s digital planning platform to automate its replenishment and inventory; and leveraged the digital twin capabilities to evaluate multiple inventory and service scenarios.
“Having an intelligent planning platform to manage the complexity of Randa’s inventory while continuously optimizing inventory and replenishment to changing demand shifts was crucial” said Tim Walter, CIO at Randa. “With growing channel complexity, John Galt Solutions gives us far more process automation and visibility into our supply chain network.”
John Galt’s advanced forecasting capabilities provide Randa with the ability to leverage attribute-based forecasting to streamline new product introductions, bring in market consumption data into the forecast, and easily translate into replenishment strategies. With the constant change of consumer preferences, Randa is able to quickly assess consumer demand and analyze it at a granular level such as print patterns in a specific color family.
We enjoyed partnering with Randa to streamline their planning process, improve inventory management, and drive cross-functional collaboration across business divisions,” said Anne Omrod, president and CEO of John Galt Solutions. “The Atlas Planning Platform helps companies like Randa drive higher margins, improving service and automate replenishment with more confidence.”
