Slimstock launches regional office in Dubai
In order to provide customers in the United Arab Emirates with the best possible service, Slimstock has opened a regional office in Dubai. “This new location is the ideal hub for us to serve countries across the Middle Eastern and African region with our inventory optimisation solution,” says CEO Eric van Dijk.
“We see a huge amount of opportunity to help businesses in this region with our inventory optimisation solution, Slim4″ stated Van Dijk, during the opening of the new office. One of Slimstock’s new clients in the United Arab Emirates is Sephora who, amongst other things, uses Slim4 to optimize the replenishment of their stores.
Global service, local support
The new location perfectly complements Slimstock’s ‘global service, local support’-strategy. The inventory management specialist is active in 40 countries with branches in 20 countries across Europe, Asia, North and South America. Van Dijk: “After the opening of our regional office in Singapore last year, Dubai was the ideal base to serve our customers throughout the Middle East and Africa.
Experts in inventory optimisation
Slimstock currently supports over 700 customers worldwide in optimizing their inventory and increasing their efficiency. Van Dijk: “We can offer assistance to help reduce our customers’ inventory while at the same time increasing the service level. As a result, turnover increases, while costs decrease. The return on a Slim4 investment starts within one year of introduction, and we offer a guarantee on these results.” Slimstock’s complete software package, Slim4, contains forecasting, demand planning and inventory management, helping their customers to get the right inventory to the right place at the right time.
In addition to software solutions, Slimstock also offers project-based support and professional services, including coaching, analysis, and interim professional support. Van Dijk: “We believe that the knowledge aspect is very important. That’s why we have the Slimstock Academy where we train our customers to make the most of our software and also transfer our knowledge in inventory & supply chain management. We are convinced that when our customers have more knowledge, we can outperform together.”
