Auchan China implements planning software

Retailer Auchan China has deployed new planning software across its complete range of apparel and footwear products

It has selected TXTPLM and TXTPlanning (Allocation and Replenishment) for the upgrade which paves the way to the second phase of the project in which Auchan China will implement TXT Retail’s merchandise financial planning and in-season management capabilities. 
This will cover the full spectrum of its processes, from design to delivery, with TXT Retail Merchandise Lifecycle Management.
With 80 hypermarkets and a growing business confronted by a strong call for localisation and a need for speed in planning and execution, Auchan China recognised the value of adopting a complete, end-to-end platform capable of integrating any aspect of design, product development, planning and delivery into a single environment.
“By selecting TXT Retail, we have selected a corporate platform and a transformational partner,” said Emmanuel Fondeville, director of efficiency, - Auchan Retail - China. “The TXT Retail solution helps integrate the work of different functions, while further increasing responsiveness of merchandise management as a whole.”
TXTPLM and TXTPlanning are fully integrated with Auchan’s existing ERP system driving allocation and replenishment to all stores and for over 100,000 SKUs.
