Budgets and forecasts for the retail sector
Planning here is absolutely vital for profitability. And if you own all parts of the chain – from wholesale to retail – there are numerous parameters and volumes that govern the planning process. In this area you have to mix it up a little when it comes to the level of detail and work with product groups all the way down to the retail level. But there are different approaches. Many like to work with information from the retail level, while others work more at the wholesale level when it comes to control and planning.
