TXT Retail, an Aptos Company, Unveils TXT Retail 9, the Industry’s Most Advanced Merchandise Lifecycle Management Solution, at NRF 2018

TXT Retail 9 delivers enhanced usability, collaboration and performance

ATLANTA, Jan. 16, 2018TXT Retail, an Aptos Company, will present TXT Retail 9, its newest and most advanced end-to-end merchandise lifecycle management solution at NRF 2018: Retail’s Big Show in New York City, Jan. 14-16.

Uniquely positioned in the market for its depth and breadth of functionality, TXT Retail 9 supports all activities involved with planning, designing, distributing and managing assortments. TXT Retail 9 provides significant new benefits, including improved collaboration in assortment planning, stronger visualization and reporting functionality, enhanced capabilities to support both retail and wholesale buying processes, and more.

“In addition to delivering exceptional functionalities covering end-to-end merchandising needs, TXT Retail 9 also provides superior standards of usability and performance,” states Riccardo Proni, SVP solution center and product at TXT Retail, an Aptos Company. “The power of in-memory, coupled with the best tools for visual and collaborative planning, leads to the ability to create, analyze and socialize plans ever faster and smarter.”

TXT Retail 9 offers a host of new features and extensions including:

  • Online Excel Client: Provides a completely new user experience facilitating extended collaboration in assortment planning. Thanks to its web-based architecture, the Online Excel Client can be easily deployed to a wider community of users, including remote ones. They can access the same set of planning functionality available to desktop users, leveraging the same powerful planning engine.
  • Extensions to the Visual Tool: Enriched with data entry and editing capabilities, such as the ability to add new products or modify the assortment, the tool evolves from providing strong visualization and reporting functionality to providing complete planning support.
  • Extensions to the In-Memory Engine: The way users organize and analyze their data becomes increasingly flexible, enlarging the scope of processes and tasks covered by in-memory technology.
  • Support to the Buying Session: The visual capabilities of the solution now support both retail and wholesale buying processes, providing navigation by “look” or “theme.” Thanks to the unique integration with Planning, users can “switch” from the visual collection of orders to the Online Excel Client, manipulating in real time the same set of data and serving their most complex planning needs.

TXT Retail 9 also extends the spectrum of planning processes covered by AgileFit by introducing AgileFit Assortment Planning and AgileFit Replenishment based on in-memory technology as part of its preconfigured solution framework.

TXT Retail 9 is a key component of the Aptos Singular Commerce suite, combining TXT Retail’s best-of-breed merchandise lifecycle management with Aptos’ best-in-class customer engagement and inventory management solutions, all available in the cloud.

TXT Retail and Aptos will showcase product innovations and the benefits that the solutions bring to retailers at NRF 2018 booths 2575 and 3306, respectively.
