Slimstock supports growth
By Now in their 30th year of business, Hardware Resources prides themselves on only manufacturing and selling products whose quality they believe in. Their customers in the building materials industry have taken notice, as Hardware Resources has opened a 7th warehouse to shorten delivery times and better serve them.
“It has been tremendous,” Crystal said. In addition to lowering inventory, Slimstock has also helped Hardware Resources expand their product assortment and adjust order dates to keep items in stock during Chinese New Year.
These results are in line with what other Slimstock customers have achieved, but simplified and streamlined forecasting and supply planning are only part of what makes Slimstock essential to success. On average, companies who use Slimstock increase sales by 5% while reducing inventory by up to 30% and lowering stockouts by 50%.
Slimstock’s personnel are also a difference-maker for Hardware Resources. The support Crystal receives from the Slimstock team helps her feel like she’s set up for success.
“Debbie and Matt and the Slimstock team have been great about answering my questions,” Crystal said. “They’re always there for me.”
With Hardware Resources continuing to grow, Crystal and the rest of the buying team plan on staying very busy as markets adapt to current circumstances. When asked to sum up her feelings on Slimstock’s overall impact on her job and how it’s helped her prepare for expected future successes, Crystal is clear – “I’m very happy!”
