Elidis Boissons Services, a major player in the French beverage distribution market, has selected Aldata G.O.L.D. Supply Chain Management software for its distribution centres. Elidis selected Aldata G.O.L.D., specifically the G.O.L.D. Topase module, for the optimised replenishment of its 70 distribution centres.
"We wanted a software package which was able to accompany our evolution in terms of supply chain management for global logistics flows. For this, our approach is strongly oriented on replenishment optimisation, financial optimisation of the ordering process and rationalisation of stocks", states Raimund Elsen, Director of Supply Chain and Quality at Elidis.
Aldata demonstrated the capacity of Aldata G.O.L.D. to meet the needs of Elidis in terms of the optimisation of stocks and global logistics flows. G.O.L.D. Topase, based on demand forecasting models well-adapted to the retail and distribution sector, provides defined service levels in order to minimise out-of-stocks across all product ranges and facilitates speculative buying to take advantage of promotions and price changes.
The pilot project, whose team is composed of Elidis - Kronenbourg and Aldata professionals, was started in February 2004. The project lasted for 4 months and had as its objective the centralised management of the 70 regional centres. In June this year, two sites were put into production and the full rollout is now underway.
"The replenishment optimisation delivered by Aldata G.O.L.D. is proving its benefits to customers. With Elidis, Aldata is once again providing supply chain software solutions which comply fully with real supply chain business needs", says Ren HOMEYER, Deputy CEO of Aldata Group.
