Develop the ideal collection scope and product mix
Learn from previous seasons and use your sales figures to develop your new schedule. Work on the sales floor even while you develop your collection. Populate your virtual, true-to-reality 3D sales area with dummies, calculate the turnover potential of your collection and decide which models you want to take to the next stage of development. Once you have determined the ideal product mix, you will soon see what quantities need to be ordered to fill the racks appealingly and to deliver sufficient supplies to every outlet.
You can then replace the dummies with the real items from the collection during the course of development. Planning will progress smoothly towards the finished shop. It serves as a communication platform for every department involved in collection development. You can generate automatic order confirmations for shops and sales areas and make them available to the person responsible for the sales space. Koppermann delivers a solution that enables you create collections where everything is a perfect fit.
One interface is all you need
