Zadig & Voltaire unifies with new software

By Retail Technology | Wednesday January 27 2021

Luxury fashion brand Zadig & Voltaire has implemented a centralised planning platform to unify its buying, allocation and replenishment processes across its stores and online channel

Zadig & Voltaire has recently gone live with Aptos’ Allocation & Replenishment and Commercial Buying Session solutions.

As its commercial enterprise has grown, both in scale and complexity, Zadig & Voltaire recognised the need to optimise its retail planning activities aligned with its multi-channel distribution strategy.

“In the past, our planning and buying activities were highly fragmented and supported by heterogeneous systems,” notes Nicolas Gand, COO at Zadig & Voltaire. “With Aptos’ platform, we benefit from an end-to-end automated process that frees up time for buyers, planners and the supply chain team while optimising inventory levels and positioning throughout our network.”

Aptos has helped the brand to digitalise key processes, such as buying, as well as to plan merchandise for stores and online in a much more efficient and customer-centric manner.

With Aptos’ Planning solution, Zadig & Voltaire can handle a complete range of critical merchandise planning functions easily and effectively including the generation of product plans, product buys, through product delivery. Once merchandise financial targets are set within Aptos Merchandise Financial Planning, Zadig & Voltaire utilises Aptos’ Commercial Buying Session solution.

Ideal mix

Zadig & Voltaire’s territory managers who visit the showrooms will select the ideal mix of products for their territory, and strategically place orders.

Given the current norms of social distancing and reduced business travel, Aptos’ Commercial Buying Session also offers the option for buyers to virtually navigate the collection and select the best products for their specific locales. 

As product nears delivery, Zadig & Voltaire relies on Aptos Allocation & Replenishment to execute the initial allocation against the assortment plan and local needs, automatically replenish additional product to locations based on sales trends and forecasts, and then reallocate remaining products to specific locations to maximise sales, margins and inventory velocity as the product lifecycle progresses.
