Nissens Automotive, market leader in engine cooling and climate solutions for the automotive aftermarket, is teaming up with Optilon. The joint aim is to streamline the inventory management process of Nissens Automotive while gaining a better product availability and a higher inventory turnover.
Exciting news from Denmark! Optilon and Nissens Automotive have started a new collaboration where Nissens wish to improve the way the inventories are managed today in the automotive sector. The automotive sector consists of over 10,000-part numbers and a product portfolio that gets an addition of 500+ new items every year. Nissens Automotive is working towards a short time to market with high flexibility, and compatibility with OE quality compliance. There is also a strong emphasis on keeping a high availability on all parts. Nissens offer 24-hour delivery across Europe.
During the project, the aim is to increase the inventory turnover, improve the forecast accuracy, and reduce manual planning efforts. To do so SO99+ (Service Optimizer 99+), developed by Optilon’s trusted partner ToolsGroup, is implemented. ToolsGroup has consecutively been ranked the market leader as a system developer of advanced multi-echelon inventory optimization applications by Gartner. The implementation will include the SO99+ modules for Demand Planning, Multi-Echelon Inventory Optimization, and Replenishment Planning. The project started in May 2018.
