Wholesale & Distribution
In order to gain a competitive advantage, many wholesalers now offer extensive assortments encompassing many thousands of SKUs. While this ensures that customers have plenty of choice, ensuring every item is managed effectively is often a real challenge.
With Slim4, wholesalers and distributors gain greater control over their inventory thus enabling them to achieve efficiency improvements. Through optimising the entire inventory optimisation process, businesses can reduce inventory levels by up to 30% while still achieving the service levels customers expect.
Retail & Ecommerce
Retail is a dynamic and complex industry: the number of product introductions is always increasing, the promotional pressure is high. Given that turnover is fragmented across multiple locations and channels, it’s vital that the inventory is managed effectively to ensure the customer always enjoys a convenient shopping experience wherever they choose to make a purchase.
Slimstock’s retail solutions are designed to enable structural inventory optimisation in Food, Fashion, and Non-Food environments. The focus is on the central warehouse, the webshop(s), and automatic store replenishment. Through utilising our inventory optimisation software, Slim4, coupled with our extensive retail experience, we ensure that our customer reaches their inventory goals: the right stock at the right time in the right shop!
