In addition to improving visibility across the supply chain, Slim4 has allowed the team at Raleigh to engage the wider business in key inventory management decisions.
Using the order collaboration functionality, the team at Raleigh can take complete ownership of the inventory management process to achieve greater levels of control. Lee goes on to say: “In a business that is as dynamic as ours, it is vital our day to day inventory decisions align with the wider objectives of our business.”
With Slim4 in place, the planners can take full ownership of their specific categories. Furthermore, the management team can work seamlessly with the planners to validate purchase orders and achieve the most optimal inventory position.
“Thanks to Slim4, our people are empowered to make effective decisions. Equally, we can step and offer support as and when it’s required to ensure the business maintains a healthy cash flow” states the managing director.
