Innovative clothing distribution company Newbody has selected Optimity Demand Forecaster to help achieve 100% service delivery for its non-traditional retail distribution model.
Newbody is a company that offers high quality socks and underwear to sports teams and schools for the purpose of fundraising by onselling merchandise from Newbody catalogs. With thousands of sales expected from each catalog, but each of these sales being on a small individual level, this achieving 100% service delivery goals is challenging.

Optimity Demand Forecaster will handle the phase-in and phase-out of available products and ensure the get the right products are shown in the regularly updated catalogs to reduce the risk of stock-outs.
