  • Demand Forecasting and Inventory Planning in Omnichannel Retail Demand Forecasting and Inventory Planning in Omnichannel Retail Geoff Nairn, Hicham Lahlou, Maarten Tromp Recorded: Dec 1 2016 37 mins
    Demand Forecasting and Inventory Planning are now critical activities for retailers that want to succeed in today’s omnichannel world. Rapid changing customer tastes and behavior, intense competition, and rising costs associated with labor, real estate and more complex fulfillment options force retailers to optimize their capacity to forecast and plan in order to improve margins while ensuring an excellent customer service.

    In this webinar we explain the main challenges facing retailers who wish to improve their current demand forecasting and inventory planning capabilities, how to assess these processes, and what best practices and initiatives they can implement to improve them. We explain the importance of advanced planning software in producing more reliable sales forecasts and optimizing the allocation of inventory in retail supply chains.
  • Moving away from the C-corporation: understanding Reits, MLPs, PTPs and BDCs Moving away from the C-corporation: understanding Reits, MLPs, PTPs and BDCs Thomas Humphreys and Remmelt Reigersman, Morrison & Foerster; Tom Young, IFLR Recorded: Nov 30 2016 89 mins
    Traditionally, most public companies in the US were organised as C-corporations. However, tax developments in recent years have given corporate planners a wide range of new tools to structure a public company. For example, tax pass-through MLP and Reit structures are spreading into new asset classes. Also, traditional double taxed ‘C’ corporations are using tax pass-through entities, including partnerships, to reduce or eliminate entity-level taxes as well as optimise their internal structures with tax ‘disregarded entities’. These new tools lead to a variety of tax choices in deciding how to structure a public company.

    During this briefing, which is intended for a general audience, the speakers will explain the structures, restrictions and pitfalls in this evolving hybrid world of C-corporations mixed with tax pass-throughs. Specifically, they will discuss:

    •Master limited partnerships;
    •Reits and alternative assets that may qualify as ‘real estate’;
    •Business development companies;
    •Consolidated groups of corporations and disregarded entities; and
    •Up-C structures.

  • Improve Lending Portfolio Performance with Data Optimization Improve Lending Portfolio Performance with Data Optimization Spencer Robinson, Head of Strategy, Kabbage Recorded: Sep 22 2016 61 mins
    The financial crisis brought about huge losses to a large number of financial institutions and exposed many of the internal inefficiencies leveraged to manage risk and data within and across divisions. Today, things have changed dramatically. Despite the many regulatory changes over the years, marketplace lenders have been extremely successful implementing predictive modeling and data aggregation to assess consumers’ and small businesses’ financial health.

    New lending technologies allow lenders to improve customer satisfaction by creating a personalized and unique customer experience. By taking into consideration personal, transactional, application, and product-selection data from financial institutions, lenders are able to leverage this data for other opportunities such as cross-selling credit products during the loan-application process. These innovations ultimately provide borrowers with an intuitive and simplified borrowing process.

    In this webinar you’ll:

    * Get insight into the trends and opportunities driving change in the lending and credit risk management industries
    * Explore more accurate predictive ratings models based on alternative data sets
    * Discover the future of commercial retail lending and credit risk management
    * Learn how to improve credit decisions, collections, and portfolio management using new technologies and data analytics

  • Innovative Logistics Strategies for Omnichannel Fulfillment Innovative Logistics Strategies for Omnichannel Fulfillment Geoff Nairn, Enterprise Solutions Specialist at Openbravo Recorded: Sep 15 2016 34 mins
    Omnichannel fulfillment is an area where bricks-and-mortar retailers have a unique advantage over e-tailers. They can fulfill orders and handle returns from stores to reduce shipping costs and times, and capture orders in any channel, regardless of that channel’s ability to fulfill the order. To support these new cross-channel fulfillment scenarios, retailers must overhaul their IT systems and logistics to gain a single view of inventory across the entire distribution network.

    What Will You Learn?
    In this webinar we highlight how consumers' heightened expectations in an omnichannel era are forcing retailers to improve and innovate fulfillment. For example, the growth of buy online pickup in store (BOPIS) responds to consumers’ demands for convenience and instant gratification. But many retailers have struggled to do omnichannel fulfillment well, so we explain what you need to be successful in terms of technology, logistics and supply chain management.

    Who Should Attend?
    Roles with business responsibility in business processes in the Retail industry, for instance, Marketers, Store Managers, CIOs, CMOs, Logistics Managers, etc.
