Ahlsell, the leading Nordic distributor of installation products, tools, and supplies, has expanded their partnership with RELEX Solutions, provider of unified retail planning solutions, to include forecasting and replenishment for their 200 stores. RELEX will improve Ahlsell’s store replenishment and inventory management processes, driving increased availability and integrating control of the supply chain from end to end.
Prior to working with RELEX, Ahlsell handled their store replenishment through their ERP system. Because they already had RELEX’s forecasting and replenishment solution in place for their distribution centers and were seeing good results with its implementation, Ahlsell chose to expand the partnership with RELEX to integrate the system with their store replenishment processes as well.
“By fully integrating our inventory management, forecasting and replenishment processes with RELEX, we are able to improve the whole supply chain and reduce manual work related to orders,” says Daniel Johansson, Logistics Director Sweden at Ahlsell. “With RELEX, we expect more accurate long-term planning, improved product lifecycle management and efficient handling of slow-moving products.”
“We are excited to expand our partnership with Ahlsell, a highly respected distributor in the Nordics, just three months after having implemented RELEX for Ahlsell’s distribution centers,” says Ida Myran, VP Sales EMEA North at RELEX Solutions. “We look forward to optimizing Ahlsell’s end-to-end supply chain by linking together forecasting and replenishment for both their stores and central warehouses, which will enable them to quickly realize additional business benefits.”
