The partnership will leverage Bamboo Rose’s Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) Sourcing and Purchase Order (PO) management solutions along with Blue Yonder’s retail and supply chain planning capabilities to reduce costs, deepen supplier relations, synergize operations, and accelerate time to market.

Client organizations that utilize the partnership will equip their merchandising and design teams with actionable insights based on a mix of historic development data and real-time sales data supporting an agile and consumer-centric product strategy. Additionally, the partnership will allow retail clients to drive deeper transparency with their vendor community by exposing planning data to suppliers early to drive optimized start dates on production runs.

Aligning product development, sourcing and assortment planning across systems and business processes expedites feedback on merchant interest between retailers and their partners, reduces the costs associated with the development phase and streamlines product innovation.
