Superdry began a strategic partnership with Island Pacific in 2015 using the Island Pacific SmartPlanning solution. The decision to implement Island Pacific Assortment Manager further strengthens that partnership and allows Superdry to progress their business processes into a systematic range planning tool.
Superdry is a UK distinctive branded global fashion retailer offering customers around the world innovative, premium, affordable quality clothing and accessories with a focus on design detail.

Island Pacific Assortment Manager application forms part of the Island Pacific SmartPlanning suite. It supports the creative activity of buying within the framework of the carefully calculated numerical budgets, which have been created in Island Pacific SmartPlanning. The Island Pacific Assortment Manager application offers the user a seamless flow from the quantitative planning process into range planning where the product content really matters. Very flexible, it provides the user with a framework to work within but is not so rigid that it curtails the commerciality of buying product. Its rich functionality makes it hugely intuitive to use.
Mark Downton, Senior Merchandiser at Superdry PLC, said: “We have been extremely impressed with the Island Pacific SmartPlanning application which enables us to strategically manage all aspects of planning within our business. It provides the Merchandising team with an effective set of tools that significantly reduces manual input and has supported the growth of the retail business through more efficient and timely planning, monitoring, forecasting and reporting. The seamless flow from the quantitative planning process into range planning provided by the Island Pacific Assortment Manager solution will allow us to achieve our key goals of: less options, improved rate of sales and improved sell throughs.”
David Hennessy, CIO at Superdry PLC said “We have been impressed with the quality of the Island Pacific team and the Island Pacific SmartPlanning solution. We believe that investing further into the Island Pacific SmartPlanning suite of applications will help in our continued growth and success. We look forward to further developing our strategic partnership and building on Island Pacific’s reputation for developing innovative and leading-edge retail solutions.”
