MAKE DATA AND ANALYTICS WORK FOR YOU. BETTER DECISIONS EQUAL BETTER OUTCOMES!
According to recent studies, companies that make data-driven decisions have the best chance for longevity. Yet across industries, it was found that only a small percentage of retail enterprises qualify as data-driven. Footwear & Apparel retailers and brands need to leverage data being collected and actively integrate analytics to improve their decision-making process. Retailers should use analytics to better understand their supply chain and their inventory. In addition, retailers should extract value from their data beyond just information gathering and monitoring.
Upstrem’s tech driven solution collects detailed data at every step of the process and we deliver that data back to our clients in the form of reports, analytics, and insights. This treasure trove of information provides our clients with the information they need to make better buying and merchandising, and supply chain decisions. We can also tightly integrate the sharing of our data with our client’s internal systems to facilitate automation and analytical solutions that drive better investment outcomes in the future.

Online sales of footwear and apparel goods are growing at a double-digit rate with no end to the shift in consumer behavior in sight. Many traditional retailers and brands have invested many years and millions of dollars building their businesses but have yet to dip their toes in the online direct to consumer sales channel.
SECURE A HIGHER LIQUIDATION VALUE FOR YOUR INVENTORY
Not all goods are created equally. Most sell, and some don’t. We can liquidate your goods for you once goods are no longer turning at a desired rate in our direct to consumer model. Upstrem can achieve a higher liquidation value for inventory versus other liquidation channels.
The amount and variety of inventory the footwear and apparel retailers and brands have left from their primary sales channels is growing with customer returns and the speed of change in consumer preferences.
Upstrem’s technology and tightly coupled processes allows us to offer the secondary market “virtual pallets” TM of inventory. These virtual pallets remove the burden, costs, and constraints of creating a fixed or bulk blend of inventory based on an imperfect perception of what the secondary market buyers are interested in purchasing. Virtual pallets allow the buyers to create their own selection of inventory they are most interested in purchasing and subsequently most willing to pay the highest price.
