Retail Project

Retail Project


Type of Client: UK Electronics Retailer

Aim of Project: To generate inventory insight through product analytics and create visibility of supply chain costs from buying through to delivery to the store and to the customer. To also review the future growth projections and develop a recommended network design solution.

Project Delivery: The BearingPoint team analysed product and range mix, accounting for fundamentally different channel economics. BearingPoint also generated visibility of costs across the full product range by channel, geography, and service offer through development of a handover Cost to Serve model. BearingPoint enabled selection of a preferred future network option through a Network Modelling tool.

Outcome: BearingPoint found opportunities to reduce working capital in inventory by 18% and liberated retail space from ineffective products. BearingPoint were able to help the client gain full visibility of the costs  throughout the supply chain. A quantified scenario modelling enabled the client to select an option to reduce variable supply chain costs by 14%.
