Omni-Channel Retailer Increases Supply Chain Visibility, Accelerates Growth

Challenge: Swedish retailer/wholesaler was having trouble navigating the difficulties of their multichannel supply chain. Inventory stock levels were climbing, and customers were disappointed because too much product was out of stock. Lack of visibility in forecasting was at the root of the problem.

Solution: The company implemented an advanced demand forecasting, replenishment and analytics solution fit for the intricacies of their multichannel operation. Supply chain visibility increased and subsequently their understanding of customer demand. They leveraged the insights from that visibility to innovate their purchasing processes, reduce inventory, and ultimately improve customer experience.

Results: In the first 8 months, the retailer increased service level achievement from 89 to 94 percent and drastically reduced the stock levels by 20 percent. Results continue to accelerate. The company has reached 97 percent service level achievement, reduced inventory by 25 percent, and increased inventory turns from 2.9 to 6.5. In 2012, the retailer reduced inventory by an additional 2M USD.
