Join Antony Karabus, CEO, HRC Advisory, North America’s leading strategic retail advisory firm (www.hrcadvisory.com) and Fred Fox, CEO, Planalytics, the leading global provider of demand analytics addressing the financial impact of weather on the retail supply chain (www.planalytics.com).

On May 13th, HRC Advisory and Planalytics hosted a webinar discussing how optimizing the precision of inventory at the local level will be more critical than ever for retailers in a post-COVID-19 landscape.

Please join us for a follow-on webinar that takes a more detailed look at one of the most volatile important factors driving localized consumer demand — THE WEATHER. The presentation will explore how retailers can better understand this key external variable, precisely quantify the sales impacts, and analytically incorporate these metrics into location-item level plans and demand forecasts.

Webinar topics include:

• Introduction to Weather-Driven Demand and how retailers use it to understand sales and better align inventories to meet demand shifts created by weather variability.
• Examples of the benefits companies are realizing including working capital gains, lower waste/shrink costs, increased sales from reduced out-of-stocks, and gross margin improvement through decreased markdowns.
• How to quickly capture the value of localization by incorporating weather impact analytics, proven process and change management approaches for MP&A, and system integration strategies.
