Omnichannel Allocation Optimization leverages antuit.ai’s Demand Intelligence platform for an omnichannel view of demand that helps retailers balance capacity, presentation, labor and financial KPI’s to achieve the optimal business outcomes. The solution guides the placement of inventory in the ideal location for store sales and online fulfillment via real-time demand sensing related to where the customer will likely buy. The dueling considerations of minimizing shipping costs while accommodating different levels of demand across online and store locations are optimized through a multifaceted approach that balances customer service levels, local demand variations, omnichannel demand behavior, future markdown liabilities, store capacity limitations and prevalence of returns. As a result, split ships and order zone hopping are minimized, and capacity issues at the DC level due to sharp increases in customer order fulfillment can be mitigated. Finally, the Allocation solution can maximize inventory efficiency by improving sell-through and lowering the need for clearance season markdowns.
