Travis Perkins wanted to reduce inventory while maximizing availability. New capabilities were needed to optimize store inventories and analyze product performance across many attributes through analysis of huge volumes of data. More than 100K products, substitutes, and 1000+ branches of multiple types made this a daunting problem.
Travis Perkins has moved closer to the goal of reduced non-productive inventory through a deeper understanding of range performance that drives effective actions. Another big benefit is the elimination of multiple weeks of latency through instantaneous impact analysis of range changes on the supply chain. Changes to the range can now be executed far more easily with more collaboration.
