A dashboard approach for executives in fashion provides the big picture showing the status of each business area for current standings in Orders, A/R, A/P, Cash flow, Inventory, and Purchase Orders. Your management team can see the business at a glance for order bookings, sales activities, profit margins, and in-coming inventories for current vs. last year’s period, plus year-to-date numbers. EIS also provides Top 10 (or 25, 50) customers’ and inventory items’ performance for net sales and profit margins.
The B.I. module provides multiple period and multiple year sales and profit margins for customers and styles, helping sales managers to understand trending sales activities. For top executive levels, Profit and Loss analysis at a glance in financial accounting is available as well as major customers’ Profit & Loss analysis.
Forecasting models are designed based on the history of the last few years’ sales considering seasonal factors, outstanding orders, and incoming purchase orders for styles, colors, and sizes. This module provides suggestions for purchases in a datasheet and users are able to add their own numbers and formulae to determine the numbers. Multiple tiers for forecasting may apply for a top-down approach that help users determine buying quantities for style levels, then move into further details, including color and size levels. Since the forecasting model is based on personal decisions, we are able to discuss customization options with users to find you the optimal solution.
