HydroGarden cherry-pick Slimstock to nurture future growth
As the UK's leading manufacturer and distributor of hydroponic equipment and services, HydroGarden has been supplying a complete range of specialist equipment since 1996. To solidify their position at the forefront of the hydroponic market and improve service to its customers, the specialist supplier has taken the strategic decision to partner with the inventory experts at Slimstock.
With a diverse customer base including major retailers, commercial growers and research organisations, HydroGarden has built a reputation for providing an innovative and high-quality range of products. Committed to providing an unequalled standard of customer service, HydroGarden is constantly looking for ways to optimise its processes.
As part of an extensive review of their business objectives and wider IT landscape, the hydroponics specialist identified the need for a solid planning platform on which they could adapt to ever-evolving trends in the market.
Simon Cook, Procurement and Operations Director at HydroGarden explains: “We are always looking for ways we can future-proof our business. As a key part of our growth vision, optimising our supply chain processes became a real priority.”
To improve visibility and control over their supply chain, HydroGarden will implement Slimstock’s inventory optimisation solution, Slim4. Focusing on forecasting, demand planning and inventory optimisation, the advanced solution will help strengthen the business’ S&OP process.
“After meeting with the team at Slimstock, it was clear that Slim4 had the capability to optimise our entire inventory management process. Offering improved visibility and transparency on inventory, Slim4 will enable quicker and more accurate decision making.” Simon goes on to add: “Furthermore, with the experience and knowledge of Slimstock’s consultancy team, I have no doubt that Slimstock is the right partner to help us realise our growth objectives.”
Richard Evans, Managing Director at Slimstock UK goes onto conclude: “HydroGarden is a very dynamic business that continues to grow rapidly. We look forward to sustaining a solid partnership with HydroGarden and supporting them every step of the way.”
