Retailers using Smart Markdowns

Are you losing money using one-size-fits-all discounts?

Establish consistent markdowns for better discount results

Without a streamlined markdown process it's easy to undersell high-demand items or overprice slow-moving ones. This lack of consistency can eat into your profits.

It's expensive to treat all products the same

A canned soda and a piece of gourmet cheese aren't the same, so why would their discounts be? Our algorithm creates optimal discounts for each individual product, enhancing sales and minimizing waste.

Curious to know how it works?

To calculate the optimal discount while still maximising profits and minimising waste, the algoritm takes a number of things into account

Historic sales and waste data

The algoritm learns how products perform in your store and uses that information when calculating the correct markdowns.

Discount Elasticity

By examining how consumers respond to discounts we ensure that each markdown attract buyers and benefits your bottom line.

Number of products

Product volume plays a big role in markdown decisions. More items left to on the shelves means larger markdowns.

Can I use Smart Markdowns in the whole store?
The solution can be used throughout the store. In departments where Whywaste is used for date checking, it will automatically be part of the daily work.

Can I use Smart Markdowns if I'm not using other Whywaste solutions?
Yes, the solution can be used through the app in stores that do not use our date checking system.
How long will it take until I see results?
You can expect to see results from day one of using Smart Markdowns. Return on investment is often less than a month.
Does the system take a lot of time and IT resources to implement?
