Seasonal/Fashion Buying



IPMax RB (Right Buy) helps retailers balance the risk of buying too much against the risk of buying too little.

It combines forecast parameters (demand forecast and variability) with economics (how much does the item cost, what is the mark-up, how elastic is the item to price changes) with a sophisticated economic optimization model to identify then analyze the expected profitability of different buys and also identify the most profitable buy.


  • We create 8 billion reorder points annually and 155 million weekly for our retail clients worldwide.
