Open To Buy Software Comparisons


OTBW, inventory planners have had a choice of spreadsheets, which are the most costly of all the options (watch our :15 seminar on the home page);  or an expensive monthly o-t-b vendor. 

OTBW has taken open to buy planning to an entirely new plateau.  It is  fill-in-the-blanks software that users can operate themselves without the need for an outside vendor and is so simple that anyone can do it.  OTBW processes all classifications which produces maximum accuracy / maximum margins / maximum ROI.   Every shop can have the right amount of inventory in every classification every month!  

However, self operation does not mean you are alone;  The OTBW team offers unlimited telephone and email support.   The program is not managed for you, it is managed by you, with the advice and support of OTBW.   It takes users far less time, costs far less money and provides the most accurate o-t-b solutions.
