Extend powerful planning capabilities from corporate to stores

With Workday Adaptive Planning, you can extend a powerful yet intuitive retail planning solution to store managers so they can analyse key trends affecting customer growth and spend, such as revenue by product SKU, gross margin, promotions, and new store ROI. At corporate, consolidate store plans to conduct longer-term, driver-based demand planning.

Develop flexible plans for complex staffing needs

Our cloud-based solution lets you plan headcount at both the corporate and store level. Model personnel levels in a variety of ways, such as by job title or by name, and include fixed headcount and FTEs whose schedules vary based on key drivers like sales or store count.

Analyse real-time KPIs and operational performance

Our intuitive dashboards and scorecards give you real-time visibility into ongoing operational and financial performance so that you can make more accurate and timely decisions. Monitor key metrics such as inventory, payroll, retail store performance, and promotional spend. Workday Adaptive Planning helps you more carefully manage your cash position and understand key trends affecting revenue results so that you can take action quickly.
