US-based retail planning solutions firm Relex Solutions has secured $200m in funding from growth equity firm TVC in line with expansion plans.

Relex offers end-to-end retail planning solutions to major retailers such as Coop Denmark, Franprix, MediaMarkt, Morrisons, PartyCity, Rossmann and WHSmith.

The company will use the investment to grow the business, as well as enhance retail planning.

The company’s solution allows retailers to enhance business by supporting them for accurate forecasting and replenishment, localised assortments, profitable use of space and optimised workforce planning.

“Our vision is to change how the field works by driving a more responsive unified planning process.”

Relex Solutions CEO Mikko Kärkkäinen said: “The development of retail and supply chain planning has been held back by siloed organisations and limitations in how technologies integrate.
