Stock value down, efficiency up
In order to better manage the rising inventory levels, Brouwland implemented Slim4. Thanks to Slimstock’s inventory optimisation software, the stock value, in spite of further assortment expansion, fell by 15%.
“Slim4 provides a full range of insights to provide greater visibility over the availability of the most important products and seasonal items. As a result, we can now respond dynamically and, above all, much more efficiently, because we are guided by exceptions. Whereas in the past, it would take two full-time employees to manage the orders. Today, it takes just half a day of one of our team member’s time.
Slim4 also provide insight to optimise production planning. By taking into account set delivery times and desired stock levels, amongst other factors, Slim4 provides order recommendations for which products should be produced.
