1 Specialising in Success: Five Portraits in Omni-Channel Specialty Retail

2 Omni-Channel Means Using Everything You Have to Gain and Keep Customers Sporting Goods Brand loyalty drives success in specialty retail. With mobile, social media and cutting-edge web technologies creating a more competitive landscape, specialty retailers are looking to gain and keep the loyalty of their customers in more ways than ever before. Omni-channel is what many in the retail industry are now calling these efforts at building more seamless customer experiences. But your customers have a very different perspective of this new, much talked-about phenomenon. They call it shopping. And if you can keep up with the omni-channel shopper, the benefits are enormous. McKinsey & Co. 1 estimates that successfully creating an omni-channel strategy will: Increase revenue by more than 2% due to lower out-of-stocks and an improved customer experience Decrease the likelihood of markdowns by 10-15% Apparel Home Improvement Reduce lead times to 1-2 days Increase DC throughput 40% Lower DC costs up to 20% To reach these customers, innovative retailers are creating a collaborative, channel-less environment that pools selling, inventory and fulfilment functions across the enterprise to become more responsive to customer preferences. Formalwear Here are five real portraits of specialty retailers who implemented Manhattan s omni-channel solutions to create exceptional customer experiences. In fact, the successes they have seen from implementing these solutions have given them a distinct competitive advantage in their markets so much so that we ve had to anonymise these portraits in order to tell their stories. Home Décor 1 The future of retail supply chains, McKinsey & Co., Feb 2013

3 Fielding Store Order Capture and Inventory Management Helps Raise Sales for Sporting Goods Chain Profile: A large-format sporting goods retailer manages a large store network in addition to e-commerce and catalogue operations. Challenge: Inventory includes everything from canoes to catchers mitts, but the retailer lacked assortment depth in individual stores to meet the unique demands of its most loyal customers. A network-wide view of inventory was needed to make items in each store available to customers everywhere. Orders for customised equipment also needed to be captured and tracked across the supply chain. Solution: Manhattan Associates Store Inventory provides capabilities to improve the in-store shopping experience, including: Real-time store inventory adjustments so the retailer and its customers know what items are on-hand Recording item-level inventory changes to indicate availability for store-to-store transfers, return-to-vendor transactions and claims processing Improved store staffing and receipt processes can be planned effectively with ASN and case-level visibility of store replenishment shipments, vendor drop- shipments, store-to-store transfers and customer special orders, Manhattan s Store Order Management (SOM) also lets store associates capture special orders and track the status of orders from purchase to delivery. The solution also provides order pickup confirmation (for pickup in-store workflows) to facilitate payment processes. This improved network-wide visibility (in conjunction with Manhattan Associates Warehouse Management solution in the DCs) has contributed to: An increase in comparable store sales by an average 4.5% Improvements in gross margins of up to 2%

4 Apparel and Footwear Retailer Compliments ecommerce with Anywhere Availability and Fulfilment Profile: A growing apparel and footwear company manages a retail store network as well as a multiple e-commerce sites. Challenge: The volatility of customer demand and the need to sell-through seasonal styles made it difficult to determine the right levels of inventory to stock in each of the company s channels. The increased influence of social media also made customer demand more unpredictable. The retailer needed to leverage inventory in its store network to prevent lost sales for out-of-stock items online. Furthermore, the retailer needed a way of experimenting with varying order fulfilment priorities across its network from labour and inventory utilisation to proximity to customers for fast delivery. Solution: The retailer implemented Manhattan Associates Order Management solutions to provide: Real-time inventory availability information across its network of DCs and stores, governed by sophisticated business rules to determine whether to display items on the company s e-commerce site Intelligent sourcing and management of customer orders from purchase all the way to delivery The ability to avoid markdowns by finding the most distressed or lowest-priced unit of a store item to fulfil an online order at a higher price In addition, Manhattan s Store Fulfilment solution enabled store associates to accept, pick, pack and ship online orders from store inventory quickly and efficiently. As a result of this improved flexibility and cross-channel collaboration: Gross margins have notably improved on late-season and distressed inventory e-commerce continues to grow by providing substantial inventory depth Peak volume for orders routed to the store network has reached nearly 50% of total online orders in a single day Store fulfilment opened the door to new thinking on pricing and promotions strategies.

5 Home Improvement Retailer Builds Higher Customer Satisfaction Profile: A chain retailer operates several hundred stores in Europe. In addition, its network consists of a set of urban, small-footprint DCs and a fast-growing e-commerce site. Challenge: Because of long lead times for orders for certain products, the company needed to access inventory across its network of stores and DCs to avoid over-ordering from suppliers and prevent lost sales due to stock-outs. However, its existing system could not provide real-time inventory availability or status of orders. Solution: With real-time inventory, visibility across its network (including availability of in-transit and on-order items) and advanced order orchestration capabilities, Manhattan Associates Order Management solution has prepared the company to: Improve customer satisfaction by providing visibility of inventory across the store network Lower lost sales by leveraging full-network inventory to save sales and present broader product assortments to in-store customers Improve accuracy of delivery and available-to-promise dates Ship directly from vendors to customers for special orders, reducing delivery time and improving product selection By integrating directly with Manhattan s Warehouse Management solution, this retailer has also been able to: Improve the efficiency and balance of order processing for both direct-to-consumer and store replenishment orders Intelligently route orders to the correct DC based on inventory availability, capacity, available labour, etc. Enable more effective shipment planning by factoring in transportation costs and other considerations during order sourcing

6 North American Formalwear Chain Dresses Up In-Store Sales Profile: A formalwear chain retailer maintains a network of several hundred stores and a significant e-commerce/catalogue/call centre operation. Challenge: The brick-and-mortar store is key to the customer experience for this retailer thanks to in-store services like stylists, fittings and alterations. Because its loyal customers demand choice and speedy delivery, the company needed to provide a full range of customer delivery options, minimise single-item vendor shipments and maximise the visibility of its network inventory to support better customer service. Solution: By using Manhattan s Order Management solutions this retailer is now able to deliver: Real-time order status for customer inquiries Real-time inventory visibility across the network Receipt of inbound shipments at stores and fulfilment/receiving of store-to-store transfers Real-time inventory checks and order promising during cart checkout to improve the e-commerce shopping experience Lower lost sales by enabling store associates to source orders for out-of-stock items from across the store network By implementing Manhattan s Store Inventory the company: Improved customer service by offering improved visibility of inventory across the store network Reduced the time needed to process receipts from DCs and vendor direct shipments in the store Improved store execution through management of inventory transferred within the store network Overall, Manhattan solutions have helped the retailer increase comp-store sales by an average of 5%.

7 Home Décor Retailer Furnishes Customer Experience with Flexible Fulfilment Profile: A North American home décor retailer operates retail stores across a number of brands in multiple geographies. Its e-commerce site is one of the fastest-growing home décor storefronts online. Challenge: Because of regional differences in styles and customer preferences, in-stock items vary widely from store to store and differ from those offered online. As a result, stores were under constant pressure to sell through local inventory to avoid markdowns before new assortments were introduced. Additionally, the retailer wanted to improve customer loyalty by ensuring any sales touchpoint could service any customer need. Solution: Enterprise Order Management (EOM) from Manhattan Associates provides availability of inventory throughout the retailer s network. This reduces sell-through pressure by making store items available enterprise-wide. Inclusion of EOM s call centre selling capabilities allows the retailer to turn customer service calls into sales opportunities. EOM also provides intelligent order routing for all customer orders, factoring in store capacity, labour utilisation and fulfilment/ transportation costs to deliver products to customers quickly and at the best margins possible. These capabilities have enabled: Buy anywhere, ship-from store and pick-up in store capabilities A broader array of products across all channels and increased online sales Faster and lower-cost delivery for direct-to-consumer shipments Customer service representatives to capture and update orders, facilitate returns/ exchanges, provide network inventory availability, provide appeasements, etc. Improvements in the omni-channel customer experience have helped the retailer: Increase e-commerce sales Improve gross margins and sell-through rates Reduce inventory carrying and purchase costs
