The client asked us to lead the selection process of a Track & Trace solution to address multiple situations depending on the fulfillment location (supplier, DC, hyper, super…), type of goods (food or non-food items), volumes of delivery (small, large…), service required by customer (express, same day, next day…), distance of customer location from fulfillment location, carrier capacity, transport mode (inhouse, crowdsourced, outsourced). During the assessment, we run simulations with different scenarios in vendor’s free trial in order to check that finalists solutions really covered our client needs.
Douglas Spain asked us to select a forecast and replenishment solution to optimize stock management increasing service levels and reducing inventory costs.The selected solution should provide coverage to the replenishment requirements for stores, e-commerce and distribution center. Although the client has an ERP, their capabilities to manage the demand are limited.
The client requested a functional and technical assessment of an ad-hoc solution they were developing in house and allowed them to enable picking, packing and tracking last-mile deliveries. Technically, the solution was very good to cover their needs at that moment but it wasn’t a scalable model capable to cover both future scenarios and developments required to enable detailed operations described before so, the client asked us to assess solutions available in the market.
