Direct Product Profitability for Retail

Not applicable
The Direct Product Profitability model is something that every retailer should have in their toolkit. This tool is vital to assisting with the operational decision making process by giving you the ultimate insight into every single cost that goes into selling an individual product. Ultimately, a DPP model is designed to:
  • Improve sales and gross margin by making decisions on product purchase quantities, stock presentation in the store and pricing strategies
  • Reduce costs by making decisions on process (logistics, warehousing and delivery to stores) and product characteristics (package size, item size)
