  The Planning Services / Open To Buy Module is designed to assist the Retailer to manage the Open to Buy budget and the resultant purchasing decisions. Monthly sales budgets may be entered as far in to the future as required from the Corporate level down to Day or Salesperson as needed.

The OTB module may be implemented to calculate on either Cost, Net Retail or Gross Retail figures. This option, together with the Budget hierarchy which descends through Company, Division, Season, Store, Period, Week, Day and Salesperson provides the ultimate in sales budget detail. The chosen budget level together with the OTB options of Department, Class or even Item provide the Merchandise controller or Buyer with supportive projections to allow effective basic buying or expansion decisions.
