One of the key advantages of the Q platform is that it does not look to solve any single problem in a vacuum. Q is a holistic solution to addressing merchandising business processes. Vertically – Q deals with dynamic re-planning, execution, analytics and learning. Horizontally – Q understands the upstream and downstream impacts of a decision made in one area and looks to find the right answer rather than the best answer for one piece of the problem.
Functional integration is achieved on two levels:
- All of the pieces of the puzzle come together to achieve a solution that is greater than the sum of the parts
- Workflow is consistent across business process and functional boundaries in a way that is transparent to both the end-user and the result
