Zadig & Voltaire optimises buying and inventory systems

French high-end ready-to-wear brand Zadig & Voltaire has optimised its retail planning activities to align with its multi-channel distribution strategy.

The company has deployed Aptos’ Commercial Buying Session and Allocation & Replenishment solutions to support merchandise planning processes across over 350 international stores and its e-commerce operations.

With the implementation, Zadig & Voltaire now has a centralised planning platform to unify its buying, allocation and replenishment processes across its stores and online channels.

“Previously, our planning and buying activities were highly fragmented and supported by heterogeneous systems,” said Nicolas Gand, chief operating officer 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.

“All users of the Aptos system - we have more than 30 currently - are contributing to a single integrated workflow,” said Gand.

With social distancing and reduced business travel, Commercial Buying Session offers the option for buyers to virtually navigate collections and select the best products for their specific locales.

“As retailing becomes more global and consumers adopt a digital-first approach, retailers have to prioritise digital transformation in a way that streamlines operations and brings the business closer to the needs of the consumer,” said Aptos president and chief operations officer Steve Towe.
