Cigarette Replenishment

Reduces your cigarette inventory investment dollars, thereby increasing sales by diminishing out-of-stocks. CR allows the product to automatically find its own levels, by SKU, by store. For example, a cigarette in an urban location may be in a different bracket than in a rural location. CR will allow adjustment for both areas based on the information you set for each location.

  • Maintains tracking of 13 rolling inventory weeks
  • Make necessary adjustments due to cigarette promotions
  • Set your own percentage of safety stock based on volume brackets for your stores
