EXECUTION PLATFORM


 
 

IMS Execution Platform – An E2E Approach

For nearly 35 years, IMS has provided turnkey merchandising execution for large brands and retailers. Because we own the process end-to-end, we’ve spent every one of those years finding more and more ways to wring out every last drop of savings for our clients.

As a result, we are able to enhance speed to market, deliver ~30% end to end efficiencies, and achieve complete operational transparency in real time. Low unit costs are just a starting point.

STORE PROFILING

We hold and update thousands of store profiles for our clients and give them categorical information on store attributes and footprints. Integrating this with production planning, IMS clients purchase and ship only what their stores can use. No more, no less.

SHIPMENT CONSOLIDATION

Be it parcel or freight, the biggest savings in transportation come from combining shipments. Through a combination of human planners and software scanners, we find every opportunity possible to turn 2 into 1.

INTEGRATED TRANSPORTATION MANAGEMENT

Integration of technology from sourcing to warehouse to end-point delivery helps you save pennies that add up to dollars. Coordination turns parcels into LTL and LTL into FTL. Careful timing reduces inventory storage and carrying costs. Purposeful integration of owned logistics and technology makes it happen.
