Slim4 ensures high availability
To build a more reliable and data-based ordering process, ReboPharm decided to invest in an advanced software solution that would ensure optimal inventory management.
To ensure a smooth selection and the subsequent implementation process, the veterinary wholesaler put together a special project team that defined the requirements and managed the tender process.
Focused on purchasing, procurement, IT and finance, Sabrina Hessing-Jansen has managed ReboPharm in partnership with Inga Koenen since January 2021. Explaining the business’ requirements, the director adds: “It was important to us that the future system could support our complex operation as well as help us with the heavy lifting. Slimstock convinced us that Slim4 was the best tool to support our needs.”
“The requirements we placed on the software were demanding as our business is completely unique. As a specialist wholesaler for veterinarians, we carry over 30,000 items – including human and veterinary medicines, practice supplies, disposable items, laboratory and operating room supplies, medical technology, care products and feed supplements. Each product group has different characteristics that need to be taken into account,” states Sabrina Hessing-Jansen.
The director continues: “This ranges from managing items with very short expiry dates to managing items that are only ordered upon special customer request. In addition, some of our items are subject to seasonal fluctuations and promotional demand. In this respect, we also needed to enrich our master data with new fields to be able to manage these requirements in Slim4.”
