“Before Slim4 we managed the stock with a lot of will but with few means. We had a tool for our local Spanish market. However, the other 32 subsidiaries had nothing in place and there was a great disconnection across the business. It was vital for us to implement a single planning tool that could unify all our processes across the headquarters and the subsidiaries. This is ultimately why we turned to Slimstock,” explains Leopoldo Ojembarrena, SCM Global Planning at Teka.
In April 2018, Teka group decided to implement Slim4. With 30 different ERPs, integrating all the data into one system was a major challenge. However, in just over a year, all of the systems were successfully integrated. “We now have greater visibility over our inventory than ever before. For us, this is huge step forwards as before we totally blind. Now we have the data in Slim4, and thus we have ready access to all the information we need.”
