Teka is one of the world’s giants in the manufacture and distribution of household appliances, sanitaryware and kitchen and bathroom taps. With a commercial presence in 116 countries, the business operates 23 factories across Europe, America and Asia and serves over 100 million customers worldwide.
With such an immense network, the Management Team requires maximum visibility to make effective decisions.
“Before Slim4, we managed the stock with a lot of will but with few means. We had a tool for our local Spanish market. However, the other 32 subsidiaries had nothing in place. Consequently, there was a great disconnection across the business. It was vital for us to implement a single planning tool that could unify all our processes across the headquarters and all the subsidiaries. This is why we turned to Slimstock,” explains Leopoldo Ojembarrena, SCM Global Planning at Teka.
In April 2018, the Teka Group decided to implement Slim4. With 30 different ERPs, integrating all the data into one system was a major challenge. However, in just over a year, all of the systems were successfully integrated. “We now have greater visibility over our inventory than ever before. For us, this is huge step forwards as before we were blind. Now we have the data in Slim4, we have ready access to all the information we need.”
