CJ Lang & Son Ltd, the wholesaler for SPAR in Scotland, and the largest Scottish convenience store franchise with over 300 stores across the country, has selected RELEX, provider of unified supply chain and retail planning solutions, to automate and optimise their supply chain processes. RELEX will deliver integrated store and DC forecasting and replenishment, as well as improved allocations and promotional forecasting for CJ Lang’s company owned stores and distribution centre. RELEX will also drive improved order accuracy, sharing of forecasts to suppliers, and fresh assortment optimization.
CJ Lang sought a solution that could significantly improve the management and automation of their ordering processes so they could focus on more value-adding tasks. They looked to RELEX for their market reputation in convenience forecasting and replenishment as well as to deliver improvements to promotions and product lifecycle management and save staff time to focus on customer experience.
“RELEX’s proven track record within convenience grocery and with other SPAR entities was a key factor in our choice for this partnership,” says Graham Murdoch, IT Director at CJ Lang & Son, “We look forward to utilizing market-leading forecast and replenishment solutions to optimise our processes, increase visibility throughout our operations, and maintain quality in our customer offer.”
