Roper Rhodes set to bathe in supply chain success with Slimstock
To help maintain and improve their market leading availability across their stylish range of bathroom furniture products, Roper Rhodes has taken a major step towards bolstering their position as the UK’s favourite independent bathroom specialist. Following the decision to partner with Slimstock, the bathroom specialist will utilise the inventory management expert’s supply chain solution, Slim4, to increase customer service levels and support the business’ continuous growth.
With customers ranging from national merchant groups to local authorities, housing associations and plumbing contractors, Roper Rhodes has provided customers with a complete range of functional and stylish bathroom furniture for over 30 years. With the support of Slimstock, the UK’s favourite bathroom supplier will now utilise Slimstock’s inventory optimisation solution, Slim4, to modernise their approach to inventory management.
“In the past, we relied upon our ERP system to help manage our inventory. However, as the business has grown, we knew that this approach was simply no longer optimal,” explains John Wright, Operations Director at Roper Rhodes. With an already extensive range encompassing; sanitary ware, showers, taps and bathroom accessories, the business required a solution which could enable the team to forecast demand with greater confidence and thus, manage their ever-evolving assortment more effectively.
With the ability to anticipate demand with much greater accuracy, once Slim4 has been implemented, the team at Roper Rhodes can focus more of their time and attention on what really matters to their customers. “Given Slimstock’s extensive industry experience, flexibility and robust project methodology, it was obvious that they were the right partner for us,” adds John.
Richard Evans, Managing Director at Slimstock goes on to conclude: “As we embark upon this project, I am confident that our work with Roper Rhodes will help the business on their journey towards supply chain excellence.”
