June 2020:

Join us on June 25th at noon EST for not-to-be missed advice and guidance entitled ‘Manage Inventory Uncertainty in Uncertain Times’.  There are a number of external variables that constantly influence consumer purchasing decisions. Weather is constantly throwing retailers a curve and the recent pandemic has significantly changed demand trends. History is no longer a reliable benchmark to work from. New algorithms will need to be created and smart, experienced demand planners will need to “pressure test” assumptions to optimize inventory productivity. Join Enhanced Retail Solutions and Planalytics for a webinar that shows how weather-informed demand analytics provides businesses with the visibility and actionable metrics they need to capture more sales, improve inventory productivity, and reduce costs. Register here.

Among the issues and challenges addressed are the nature of the data available today, what licensees and licensors should do with that data (including cross-referencing with other information – i.e. advertising, weather, demographics, location data) to better understand what’s going on, and how to make that analysis actionable.

LIMA is the leading trade organization in the licensing industry. Their mission is to “foster the growth and expansion of licensing around the world, raise the level of professionalism for licensing practitioners and create greater awareness of the benefits of licensing to the business community at large.”

Topic Title: Big Data: Finding the Needle in the Haystack

Topic Description: “Big Data” has become an ambiguous and overused term to describe the process of collecting a multitude of data points.  Many companies are utilizing vast amounts of data in ways that were unimaginable just a few years ago.  Other companies are not sure what data is meaningful to them or how to put it to work.  Common data points collected range from customer profiles and habits, point of sale, inventory, census data, social media, web data and more.  In this session we will explore how retailers, suppliers, and licensors can form a strategy and implement resources to integrate different data points to open new opportunities and minimize liabilities.
