We also believe that to sustain value generation over time we need to build trusted relationships with our customers and implement with them a systematic approach to drive continuous innovation.

  • Our History

    The company was founded in 2018, by a small team of real experts in Retail Planning and with a passion to help companies solve their planning challenges. The founders, Simone and Riccardo, after 20 years in retail planning, the last 9 of which spent together at TXT Retail, saw a clear opportunity to innovate the way software solutions support Retailers in this area. The following challenges and opportunities were top of mind:

    • The past generation of Retail Planning systems had limited user adoption due to lack of usability, performance, and flexibility.
    • There was a major increase in Retail Planning complexity driven by both Omnichannel as well as the possibility to leverage more integrated and reactive supply chains.
    • There was a much greater cultural readiness and top management support for leveraging advanced analytics as part of the planning process (we like to call it Augmented Intelligence).

    The first pilots were carried out in the first half of 2019, and they were successful. Since then, we have been growing the team and expanding in terms of solution coverage, customer industry segments and geographic presence. We now work with several industry leaders throughout Europe, and we are expanding globally.
