Voyager Allocation

Retail allocation software positions inventory to best serve customer demand

When it's time to make the critical decisions about where to position merchandise, you need the ability to act, react and adapt based on actual customer demand and current market trends. Logility Voyager Allocation™ uses flexible rules and automated workflows to position hardline and softline merchandise to optimally serve customer demand and accelerate inventory turns. While ensuring product availability and high customer service, you can efficiently manage inventory positions and strategically direct inventory to channels and locations that best serve customer demand. Flexible rules and workflows automate forecasting, allocation and replenishment processes, as well as performing comprehensive size optimizations. 

Voyager Allocation handles the disparate requirements of stores, discount outlets, mass merchants, ecommerce and other retail channels, improving fulfillment rates and reducing back-orders, cancellations and costly store-to-store and DC-to-DC transfers.

“We are able to forecast and allocate against lower level store plans.
We can allocate items multiple times a week to daily store need, which keeps high volume/small square footage stores in better inventory position.”
– SVP of Allocation, Abercrombie & Fitch

Tailor plans for individual channels and roll up to create omni-channel purchase orders

Voyager Allocation automates the replenishment of fashion items by recognizing short-term trends and modeling fashion item performance against similar items and categories that do have historical data. As the selling season progresses for stores and direct-to-consumer channels, you can enact “pull-based” shipments based on re-forecasted projections, while keeping each store’s contribution to plan coverage in balance and factoring in minimum and maximum constraints by location. Exceptions let you proactively manage conflicts or problem conditions as they arise.

Voyager Allocation optimizes retail allocation and replenishment, letting you:

  • Set up omni-channel allocations spanning stores, outlets, ecommerce and more
  • Leverage rule-based automated allocations at the store and group level
  • Accelerate bulk and pre-pack merchandise allocation to specific stores with pre-pack rules
  • Update store sales and stock forecasts dynamically
  • Allocate based on percent need analysis for initial allocations
  • Support capacity constrained locations with virtual warehouse reserves
