Cavender's Boot City, the largest western wear retail chain in America, has selected the Essentus Vision Retail Suite as the backbone for inventory control and merchandise management in its retail store and web operations.

"Our new partnership with Essentus will enable us to achieve substantial benefits in the area of increasing sell through, enhancing stock optimisations and controlling markdown levels," stated Joe Cavender, president of Cavender's Boot City.

Cavender's Boot City will be relying heavily on Vision Retail for inventory replenishment and stock optimisation. The Vision Allocation Suite will provide exception-based model analysis for quicker and more effective response capabilities. The company expects to generate significant bottom line improvement due to improved stock turns and better markdown management.

Cavender's will also benefit from leveraging unparalleled access to retail store data through the Oracle-based Business Intelligence solution, embedded in the Vision Retail Suite.
