Optimize to Budget

Markdowns are often associated with a set budget and financial targets, so your markdown solution should go beyond generic budget limitations. Ensure that you align with the ability to constrain your markdown plan based on a fiscal, time-bound budget for your specified period — and for your specific product set and category.

Infer Like Items Through Product Attributes

Minimize the inherent risk of new product introductions. Instead of manually assigning a “like item” when anticipating how a new product is likely to behave, benefit from science that automatically infers like items through item attributes and/or product hierarchy. Item attributes often can more accurately determine how an item will act or be perceived, so you’ll get a better plan with fewer adjustments and reduced risk.
