Supply chain planning and optimization provider ToolsGroup has acquired Mi9 Retail’s demand management business.

The deal is expected to help the company advance its end-to-end planning offerings to equip today’s multichannel retailers with more resilient, profitable and future-proof supply chains.

ToolsGroup’s modular solution architecture is designed to help retailers more easily select the products they need as part of a cohesive planning solution. The company said customers can achieve a 15-30% reduction in inventory while improving product availability as much as 99% reducing lost sales by up to 50%.

This acquisition coincides with the closing of a growth investment received by ToolsGroup from tech investment firm Accel-KKR. Accel-KKR initially invested in ToolsGroup in 2018.
