New York -- TXT Maple Lake, an international provider of integrated and collaborative planning solutions, is pleased to announce that Samsonite Company Stores, the U.S. retail division of Samsonite, is turning to TXT technology in a bid to optimize inventory through more effective merchandise planning.
Selling luggage, business cases and accessories under the Samsonite, Samsonite Black Label, and American Tourister brands, Samsonite Company Stores operates retail stores in 38 states across the U.S.
“TXT’s software will be used to help better manage inventory through the use of their flexible merchandise planning and open-to-buy tools,” explained Mike Zucker, VP of merchandising & marketing for Samsonite Company Stores.
