Jeans firm Levi Strauss & Co has chosen supply chain technology company i2 to design and deploy processes and tools at retail level.

The tools, which include a vendor managed inventory (VMI) functionality, are designed to "more accurately replenish products on the retail floor at the SKU level, providing consumers with a better shopping experience and enhancing sales opportunities for retailers", a statement said.

In addition, Levi Strauss is leveraging associated outsourced managed services from i2 for inventory management.

"We are pleased to partner with Levi Strauss & Co and help them achieve their business goals, leveraging our managed services and retail solutions to support VMI with its channel partners," said Gurdip Singh, i2 vice president, retail and consumer industries.

"Our goal is to continually monitor results and make recommendations that will allow LS&Co to improve its service to its retail customers while minimising inventory investment."
