Walmart Suppliers: Improve Forecasting, Reduce Bullwhip Effect, Create more Efficient Supply Chain Networks, and Improve Merchandising with Supply Chain Manager
Consolidation in the retail industry means there are a few big players remaining and they all have huge negotiating power with their suppliers. Retailers dictate prices, shelf space allocation and can make or break a supplier. Walmart pioneered Retailer integration by sharing inventory levels, store-level sales data, and extensive visibility into Walmart’s internal inventory movement from Distribution Centers to Stores. With Murano Corporation’s Supply Chain Manager, CPG companies can now better integrate with their retailers, combine long range weather, demographic, and Nielsen data to better plan marketing campaigns and operations.
