Plumbing and HVAC supplier, Wolseley Canada, selects Slimstock to improve in-stock performance for clients.
Slimstock, a global leader in providing inventory optimisation software, today announced they will be supporting Wolseley Canada’s effort to reengineer sales and operation planning processes to ensure optimum performance from over 220 stocking locations. Slimstock’s implementation consultants will partner with Wolseley Canada to ensure the full value of their solution’s business case is realised.
Eric Whaley, CIO of the plumbing, HVAC, Waterworks and Industrial supplier says; “We found Slimstock to be extremely knowledgeable, and that was valuable to our organisation during the selection process. They’ve already provided a lot of clarity on where our supply planning costs can be improved, and we’ve become laser focused on fixing the things that constrain our performance.”
Wolseley Canada’s focus is on improving response and efficiency of its supply chain. “We are the preferred supplier to building professionals across Canada,” says Whaley. “We want to make sure our clients receive the products they need to complete their projects on time, but we also need to mitigate working capital risk in our network too.” He continues, “To do that, we have to remove some of the manual friction with newer technology.”
Wolseley Canada was not seeing the results needed from other solutions. “Slimstock took the time to understand our operation and present us with a compelling business case. They are willing to stand behind their product and have provided very talented consultants to help us get implemented quickly. It’s very refreshing to see from a technology company,” says Whaley.
Slimstock’s North America President, Jos Crooijmans, says: “It has been a pleasure to work with a company that has been open with communication throughout the process and we expect great things to come. Wolseley Canada vetted many very competent vendors. It is a tremendous vote of confidence for us that they have chosen Slimstock.”
