Four months after deploying a web-based order replenishment application, multi-channel retailer Camping World has cut its investment in inventory by 10% and significantly reduced merchandise out-of-stocks, says Chad Selvidge, senior vice president of merchandising and marketing.

Camping World, which operates 34 stores in addition to catalogs and CampingWorld.com, deployed Evant Inc.’s Evant Demand Planning and Replenishment application on Camping World’s own web servers. The system provides demand planning and replenishment across all selling channels, an Evant spokesman says.

Camping World chose Evant’s Java-based technology for its ability to work with order processes across multiple channels, a simple user interface and the ability to deploy the system in less than six months, Selvidge says.
