Product ReplacementWritten by Trevor Hough on Nov 8, 2019 2:33:57 PM
Crisp is excited to introduce a new feature called “Product Supersession”. It helps with the following objectives:
- You are introducing a new SKU and the product itself is the same as an existing product. The difference is the pack size. As an example, you have a SKU for a 10 pack and are launching a new SKU for a 20 pack.
- You are introducing a new SKU and the product associated with the SKU is new. There are similar products that can help with forecasting demand. As an example, last year you sold BBQ chicken during the summer months only. This year, a new BBQ chicken is going to be sold during the summer months with a new SKU.
- You are introducing a new SKU and the product associated with the SKU is new. You also believe the demand will be increased or decreased. There are similar products that can help with forecasting demand. As an example, you currently sell mild salsa and it's a best seller. You introduce spicy salsa but don't know how to predict its demand. You believe the spicy salsa will have 50% lower demand.
In seconds, Crisp delivers an automated forecast for new SKU’s and replacement products. We empower the demand planner to reduce guess work and focus on collaborating with their team.
To try out this new feature, click on any Product ID/SKU in your Crisp account. Then, click on the "Product Relationships" tab.
After, click "New Relationship" and you will be on your way to saving time and forecasting with ease...not to mention saving the planet while you're at it. Crisp is on a mission to reduce food waste by delivering the most accurate and precise forecast so you don't have to keep food in storage or short ship to retailers.
