Our client, rue21 had been executing 2 company-wide physical inventories every year. These took the focus away from daily management and delayed key sales trend data.
RGIS’ experts worked with rue21 to develop and transition to their new inventory program.
The RM2 scanner replaced the paper inventories that rue21 previously held. The company-wide inventories are now held cyclically throughout the year.
Sales forecasting improved, which allowed rue21 to get smarter about purchasing. RGIS reduced the cost of inventories and improved accuracy. Additionally, rue21 is now able to inventory high shrink stores several times per year.
