Orvis selects MID Retail for merchandise allocation
Indianapolis -- MID Retail Inc. said Tuesday that Orvis Co. has selected its Advanced Allocation software to manage the flow of merchandise to Orvis retail stores.
“MID Retail’s Advanced Allocation software will help keep us ‘in-stock’ on the items our customers want,” said Julie Cheney, director of planning and allocation for Orvis. “The MID solution enables us to accurately control our inventory position while improving customer satisfaction.”
The solution will facilitate a reduction in excess merchandise stocked at stores, resulting in fewer markdowns, reduced inventory carrying costs and improved profitability.
