"RELEX transformed our grocery replenishment," saysBjörn Höglund who is responsible for supply chain development at Stockmann.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) January 24, 2017
RELEX and Stockmann have successfully collaborated since 2011 with RELEX’s systems deployed to replenish Stockman’s fresh produce and everyday cosmetics within the food halls of its Finnish department stores. Since implementing RELEX, Stockmann’s spoilage has decreased significantly while availability has been maintained at almost 99% and the amount of repetitive manual work has been reduced.
Stockmann is expanding the use of RELEX within its department stores to include its entire product range. The first phase will focus on bringing homeware and accessories into the retail planning system followed by fashion and other non-food products.
The department store chain has a very wide product range, and the continuous manual updating of system data is a time-consuming task. The aim of the project is to improve product availability while reducing the manual workload.
"Just as RELEX transformed our grocery replenishment, we believe that its introduction across our non-food product categories will deliver significant benefits both in improved availability and inventory turnover,” says Björn Höglund, who is responsible for supply chain development at Stockmann. "After all, the project is essentially all about improving the customer experience."
"We are very pleased to be building on our long-standing and very effective collaboration with Stockmann,” says Tuomo Pesonen, COO of RELEX Solutions. ”We think there’s great potential to develop its retail planning further and we’re proud to be Stockmann's partner in their drive to make their business ever more customer focused."
