GK recognized a need for new, innovative, solutions to their inventory issues, so CLARITY was an excellent fit.

Leading global SaaS inventory solutions provider Blue Ridge today announced that Gisle Krigsvoll AS is now live with best-of-breed solution CLARITY Replenishment. Gisle Krigsvoll selected Blue Ridge to optimize the company’s inventory replenishment beginning at the Heimdal Trondheim warehouse.

In order to live up to customers’ expectations on product availability and at the same time optimize cash flow and profit through inventory management, the company was motivated to take a quantum leap in solution capability. Their choice was CLARITY Replenishment and Visibility Analytics from Blue Ridge, implemented by Inventory Investment AS. “Our demand and supply network had become so complex that the functionality from our existing ERP system was insufficient,” said Siri Krigsvoll, VP Logistics at Gisle Krigsvoll AS. Ms. Krigsvoll continued, “We recently went live with CLARITY, and remarkably after such a short time, we have already observed great advantages. For instance, the system enables precise planning on tactical and strategic levels, which highlights new opportunities for us.” Ms. Krigsvoll also noted that her company’s replenishment process is now executed in far less time, with logistical and commercial considerations automatically taken into account, which enables her replenishment team to focus on more strategic activities.

The selection by Gisle Krigsvoll illuminates the recent emergence of Blue Ridge as a prominent global provider of SaaS supply-chain solutions. In the Nordics, Inventory Investment AS implements the Blue Ridge suite of products and brought the client on board. "GK recognized a need for new, innovative, solutions to their inventory issues, so CLARITY was an excellent fit,” stated Sverre Rosmo, CEO of Inventory Investment AS, “Their industry presents unique challenges and requires solutions that are adaptable.” Rosmo identified next-generation capabilities, complete functionality and simple configuration of the solution as key benefits for their client and recommended the Blue Ridge products.

Executive management saw improved supply-chain performance as a strategic advantage and considered that carefully in making a selection. “Our motivation came from knowing we could unleash the substantial potential of our company with increased profitability and cash flow by implementing CLARITY,” stated Anders Krigsvoll, CEO at Gisle Krigsvoll AS. Anders went on to say, “Just as importantly, we believe that this will significantly strengthen our competitive position.”
