Voyager Merchandise Planning

Merchandise planning software solutions at the chain and store level.

Improving your retail merchandising financial planning processes provides a superior omni-channel customer experience, and can increase profits and strengthen brands. Logility Voyager Merchandise Planning™ helps put products in front of customers more effectively and profitably by optimizing and automating merchandise and assortment planning at the chain and store levels. It converts high-level financial goals into chain and store-level plans for both financial and unit profiles to maximize sales potential while minimizing markdowns and out-of-stocks.

Using historical merchandise performance and projections of future sales, Voyager Merchandise Planning creates balanced merchandise and store plans that you can ship to quickly and efficiently, managing large numbers of planning levels, planning variables, and hundreds of stores and formats. You can perform open-to-buy planning by units and dollars, financial margin planning, and unit ladder planning. Inputs from financial plans, general ledger, and accounting allow you to maintain financial controls over your merchandise plans.

“This system gives us the forecasting and automation functionality needed to manage replenishment merchandise,
and the control required to manage products with shorter life-cycles.”
– SVP Buying and Merchandising, Clarks
