AUSTIN, Texas, March 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- For more than 100 years, Omaha-based Gordmans has been a beloved retailer of apparel and home fashions, and today its 106 stores span 22 states. An early adopter of markdown optimization software, Gordmans wanted to re-assess market options and ensure that it adopted the market-leading innovative markdown optimization solution. As a result the company has entered into a three-year contract for Revionics Markdown Optimization Suite to drive enhanced margins, remain competitive in a fast-changing retail landscape, and ensure adherence with disciplined business processes.
As a five-year user of a legacy markdown tool, the Gordmans team knew the value of a process-driven approach but wanted to ensure it leveraged a current-generation solution that incorporated advanced capabilities. Gordmans CIO Richard Heyman led a team through a rigorous assessment of market alternatives. Heyman notes, "We were impressed by Revionics' overall capabilities and their aggressive solution development investment aligned with customer needs. We also like the way Revionics' Markdown Optimization capabilities align with our business processes and the level of specialized expertise they bring to the table. They emerged as our clear vendor of choice."
"Retail innovators like Gordmans continue to invest strategically to remain competitive and deliver measurable business value, and we are pleased to partner with these innovators to drive their success," said Marc H. Hafner, Revionics' chairman and CEO. "We welcome Gordmans to the Revionics customer family and look forward to a long and prosperous relationship."
