Demand shoots up
De Jong and her colleagues decided it was high time to purchase an advanced inventory management tool, and opted for Slimstock. “I had used Slim4 in a previous role at another company and so I was already of the solution’s value. But we also looked seriously at several other solutions from different vendors. Ultimately, the user-friendliness of Slim4 and the people within the Slimstock organization were decisive.”
Following the decision to proceed with Slim4, the tool was implemented and fully functional within just a matter of weeks. “And then the corona crisis broke out,” says De Jong with a penetrating look in her eyes.
“It heralded the beginning of a period of great uncertainty, both on the supply and demand side. “At first we thought that turnover would drop, but after a few weeks that turned out not to be the case. On the contrary, demand for a lot of products shot up.”
