Availability increased from 96% to 98.9%
To guarantee their customers an exceptional level of service, ensuring a high level of availability in the central warehouse is crucial. With Slimstock’s inventory optimisation software, Slim4, Van Oirschot increased their availability from around 96 percent to more than 98 percent while maintaining a stable inventory value. Dedroog explains: “Despite offering a much broader assortment, our investment in stock has remained at around 10 million euros. With Slim4, we are able to forecast with much greater accuracy and we also have greater insight into which items should be stocked and non-stocked.” Furthermore, through taking into account economic factors such as an increase of the purchase price or the impact of a promotion on demand, Slim4 offers the right support for making informed purchasing decisions.
