Inex Partners, a fully owned subsidiary of SOK Corporation that provides warehousing and transportation, will partner with RELEX Solutions, provider of unified retail planning solutions, to implement workforce optimization solution for Inex warehouses. The RELEX solution will service two distribution centers and support over 1,200 employees in Finland, driving Inex’s main goal of ensuring they can match their capacity and capabilities to fluctuating demand throughout their logistics operations.
S Group, the parent company of Inex, is a long-term customer of RELEX, and RELEX’s forecasting and replenishment solutions are already in use at Inex’s warehouses. Inex wanted to expand their use of RELEX’s unified planning capabilities and harness the solution’s accurate forecasts to improve workforce planning. RELEX’s workforce solution will allow Inex to work in a more flexible manner and automatically optimize their resources according to demand.
“We were searching for a product that could ensure effective workforce optimization and management for both short- and long-term needs. We determined that RELEX is the best solution on the market for forecast-based shift optimization,” says Jukka Turpeinen, Operations Manager at Inex Partners. “As a leader in their field, RELEX is constantly investing in R&D, and we know that by choosing to partner with them, we are buying a ticket to the new world of workforce planning.”
“We are looking forward to working with Inex Partners and supporting their world-class automated distribution centers,” says Ida Myran, Vice President Sales, EMEA North at RELEX. “The project is already underway, and we are excited to deliver quick results to Inex.”
