Leading SaaS demand forecasting, planning, replenishment and analytics provider Blue Ridge today announced Brodrene Dahl has selected the Blue Ridge Analytics solution. The leading Norwegian HVAC and plumbing wholesaler teamed with Blue Ridge to drive stronger inventory performance with valuable business intelligence.
Brodrene Dahl selected the Blue Ridge Analytics solution to augment their current demand forecasting and replenishment solution. The company realized they could make more strategic inventory planning decisions by capitalizing on big data in their supply chain systems. Anders Falkum, Supply Chain Manager at Brodrene Dahl, noted, “The Blue Ridge Analytics application is an opportunity for our replenishment team to look at inventory data in an innovative way and ensure purchasing decisions will have a positive financial impact.” Falkum continued, “With greater visibility and understanding of our product demand, we can maintain less inventory and still provide excellent service for our customers.”
The wholesaler also recognized that the predictive analytics would allow the company to foresee potential supply chain disruptions. “At the replenishment and logistics level, we can see if there might be an issue with an item ahead of time,” stated Falkum, “This allows us to take preventative action and ensure we meet our customer’s demand.”
Management from Brodrene Dahl and Blue Ridge alike are optimistic about the partnership and the results it will bring. Greg White, CEO of Blue Ridge stated, “We have worked with Brodrene Dahl in a consultative role in the past and know what kind of potential their team has.” White continued, “The team at Dahl understands the value of an investment-driven approach behind demand planning, and we expect they will achieve results quickly using the Blue Ridge Analytics application.”
