Telecom Retail Distribution

Within the telecom retail channel, it is crucial to maintain high shelf availability while optimizing inventory investment.

Download this brief to learn how telecom companies are addressing the challenge of synchronizing retail demand and supply by:

  • Fine tuning forecasts and replenishing inventory by recommending new orders and/or reallocation from suppliers
  • Replacing store-initiated provisioning orders with a new centrally planned service-driven model that automatically generates replenishment orders
  • Leveraging store data on stocks and sell-out to achieve sustainable shelf fill rates as high as 99% with less global inventory
