The Container Store puts a lid on product management


Specialty storage retailer The Container Store not only helps customers organize their lives on the front end, but is also getting more organized on the back end.

The Container Store, headquartered in Coppell, Texas with 79 stores, has completed the implementation of PlumSlice's Select application to streamline its product selection and procurement process.

"As a retail innovator, we continually strive to offer our customers an exceptional and innovative mix of over 10,000 products devoted to helping them organize and simplify their lives," said Sharon Tindell, chief merchandising officer at The Container Store. "We chose PlumSlice Select as a solution to streamline our product selection process and increase our efficiency with their mobile-enabled and highly collaborative workflows.”

The Container Store expects to obtain better visibility into its pipeline of potential products and make more relevant and cost-effective global assortment choices. The cloud-based solution is device- and platform-agnostic, meaning all product management stakeholders, including internal employees, external partners, and vendors, can form a single team.

This wider, collaborative, real-time view of products allows more efficient and effective omnichannel fulfillment. The Container Store will be able to select products much more responsively to current consumer demand, and also have better ability to fulfill omnichannel orders from any point in the supply chain.
