Off-price retailer modernizes legacy ticketing system for a faster time-to-market

This international retailer operates in the competitive space of off-price apparel and home fashions. In their quest to deliver high-quality goods to consumers at low prices, they have set a goal of “no downtime” in their processing of inventory. Goods must move quickly in and out of their warehouses, as they don’t want to store inventory for any extended period of time. They turnover all inventory in 55 days; far below their competitors’ average of 85 days. To meet the goal of “no downtime”, their processing time has to be minimal.

As the ticketing system is this retailer’s second-most critical business system, they could no longer cope with a legacy system. They decided to modernize their legacy ticketing system by producing a global, unified solution for ticketing.
