The largest major appliance retailer in the Nordics, ELON Group, have selected Optilon as a partner for implementing inventory optimization. In addition to inventory optimization, the solution also includes forecasting and purchasing.
“With more than 400 stores and a growing e-commerce, we need to handle increased product flows in our inventories, and still provide the perfect balance between product availability and optimized inventory levels. We conducted a thorough selection process and evaluated several suppliers, before finally selecting Optilon. The main reason for our choice was that their method differs from the others, and will provide us with a high degree of automation in planning – a huge support for our planning department,” said Mathias Alriksson, IT Manager at ELON Group.
“We are of course extremely pleased and grateful to have been selected by ELON Group. It’s a fantastic brand and we’re convinced that we’ll work together well,” added Daniel Göransson, Business Area Manager E-commerce, Retail and Wholesale at Optilon.
