Honduras’ market-leading pumping equipment supplier joined forces with Slimstock on a major supply chain optimisation project. Focused on improving its service level, Bomohsa will work with the inventory experts at Slimstock to eliminate siloed planning, cut inventory levels and increase availability.

As leading distributor, BOMOHSA covers pump, power transmission, control, and automation equipment as well products for the agricultural market. With over 40 years’ worth of industry experience in Central America, the business today operates throughout Honduras, Nicaragua, and Belize.

With a long-standing reputation for providing quality products, the specialist distributor strives to deliver customers the best solution by continuously optimising processes and its resources. Boasting the largest and most modern workshop specialising in the industry pumps in the region, BOMOHSA’s committed team of professionals work hard to deliver value and ensure customer satisfaction.

BOMOHSA partner with Slimstock

To streamline its demand planning and purchasing processes, the team at BOSOHSA started to explore the market for inventory management and optimisation software. During this selection process, the business held several workshops where Slimstock’s aware-winning platform was presented.

Following the decision to proceed with Slimstock, BOMOHSA embarked upon a project to optimise its main distribution centre and fourteen branches.

Slimstock will support BOMOHSA to automate the planning workload, eliminating the reliance on spreadsheets to plan their inventory. Ledesman Chavarria, Logistics Manager at BOMOHSA explains: “Slimstock offers both the technology and expert consultants to offer us the guidance we need to carry out this project.”

Why did BOMOHSA choose Slimstock as its supply chain partner?

Working with spreadsheets is exhausting for any company. Defining assortment priority and quantity is a constant battle for hundreds of companies with thousands of SKUs and BOMOHSA is one of them.

For over 30 years, Slimstock has helped businesses across a range of different industries to make better supply chain decisions. With a focus on inventory optimisation and demand planning, Slimstock’s Slim4 platform offers a complete solution for supply chain optimisation.

“Slim4 offers all the functionality we need to optimise our inventory and organise our business,” adds Ildebran Cardona, Head of IT at BOMOHSA.

Next steps

As part of the implementation project, BOMOHOSA will implement several Slim4 modules including ABC, Service Level, Purchase Order, Multi-echelon, Stocking Policy, and Bill of Materials optimisation.

With ambitions to roll Slim4 out across the business’ operations in Nicaragua and Belize, Ledesman adds: “Slimstock’s tool offers us both confidences today and in the future. We have no doubt that we will build a lasting partnership.”

Ildebran concludes: “We have already been impressed with the support we have received from Slimstock’s consultants. With the project well on track, we can be confident that the next steps will follow in the same vein.”
