Assortment Efficiency & Reduce COGS

Attribute driven category management helps retailers to make their assortments more efficient and to consequently reduce their COGS in several different ways. Granular, and standardized product information uncovers product attributes that were previously invisible enabling category managers to offer more variety with the same or even limited SKU count.

Furthermore, through better understanding of shopper motivation category managers are able to make data driven decisions and can buy to shopper need, rather than to potential. This reduces failed product launches and waster and ultimately increasing assortment efficiency.

Collaborative Innovation

The best category managers collaborate with their suppliers to ensure they are leveraging the category experts to provide thought leadership and analysis to the category.
