RightChain Retail Client Customers
We have been fortunate to work with many of the world's largest and most successful traditional and e-commerce retailers. In merchandise retailing, Walt Disney World, Disneyland Paris, and Disneyland California were early RightChain adopters. LL Bean, the premier direct-to-consumer retailer of its day, was an early adopter. Wal-Mart entered Central America on the wings of a RightChain implementation in Costa Rica. Oxxo, the largest retailer in the Spanish speaking world, dominates Spanish language supply chains on the RightChain Retail platform. We could keep going, but you get the idea. In apparel, shoes, food, entertainment, grocery, sporting goods, furniture, cosmetics, electronics, home improvement, consumer products, and automotive.... RightChain Retail has been a catalyst for the successful optimization of many of world's leading retail supply chains.
RightChain Retail Results
RightChain implementations simultaneously increase revenue, reduce expenses and reduce capital charges. The overall result is higher gross margins, higher profitability, and higher return on capital investment.
In supply chain terms, revenue increases via higher fill rates and optimized store delivery frequencies and timing. Expenses are lowered via optimized transportation, warehousing, and sourcing. Supply chain capital charges are decreased via optimized inventory levels, optimized logistics infrastructure designs, and optimized rates.
Historically RightChain implementations yield the following range of results.
1. Lower Inventory (9% to 36%)
2. Higher Fill Rates (2 to 7 points)
3. Lower Supply Chain Costs (8% to 23%)
4. Faster Retail Response Times (1 to 3 days)
