Our systems allow all our decisions to be insight driven. This lets us ultimately deliver and merchandise the right titles, in the right quantities, to the right stores, at the right time.
ReaderLink’s proprietary Vendor Management Inventory (VMI) System utilizes machine learning algorithms to predict the demand in each store. Based on actual historical sales patterns, we look at major bestsellers and new releases. Designed and developed by ReaderLink, VMI produces benefits in sales and sell-through. It also serves as the cloud-based platform for reporting critical supply chain information to our retailers and supplier partners.
ReaderLink’s trailblazing business analysis platform, Insight, also provides detailed historical business analysis from macro to granular data levels. Valuable data collected (consumer, customer, category, channel, format, genre, and title) combined with our ability to use that data helps us uncover patterns and create actionable business insights. This data gives our retailers and supplier partners a powerful competitive advantage.
Through the latest technology of cloud-based software, ReaderLink supports category management efforts, identifies and improves financial developments, monitors return rates and trends, identifies better merchandising strategies, and improves logistics efficiency.
Our industry-leading database maintains over 3 billion records of sales data, which we constantly leverage to optimize and improve efficiencies.
