With two warehouses located in Dublin and Cork, J&S Automotive has built a solid reputation for its exceptional level of customer service: “As a high value distributor of premium parts, our goal is to service and supply Motor Factors. However, to provide all that is needed to give our customers a complete and profitable service, its vital we take proactive steps to optimise our supply chain.”
To support the businesses continued growth, J&S Automotive needed a solution that could help its team to optimise the investment in inventory. Given Slimstock’s authority in the automotive aftermarket sector, J&S turned the inventory experts to help boost availability whilst reducing inventory levels.
Prior to using Slimstock’s advanced inventory optimisation solution, Slim4, J&S Automotive relied on complex spreadsheets to manage their inventory. Paul Flynn, Purchasing Director at J&S Automotive Distributors explains: “With such a large assortment of products, keeping inventory levels in check was an extremely time-consuming task. Furthermore, given the long lead times and volatile nature of demand, we spent too much time firefighting.”
