DYNADRO, a druggist and chemist retailer and wholesaler which is the largest single format retail chain in the Netherlands with some 650 franchise stores, has selected G.O.L.D. from Aldata for the management of its central supply chain operations.
The Aldata solution, consisting of G.O.L.D. Central for central head-office operations and G.O.L.D. Stock for warehouse operations, will provide DYNADRO with buying, product management, merchandising, replenishment and integrated warehouse functions. The franchises will receive product information including assortments and pricing from the central head-office and will provide sales and inventory updates to the central system. The integrated warehouse system will co-ordinate supplier deliveries, inventory management and store shipments.
For Mr. Wout Slob, Managing Director of DYNADRO, the Aldata G.O.L.D. software was our solution of choice as it was the best fit for our business requirements. The functional catalogue, the flexibility and the architecture of G.O.L.D. gives us an optimal software base upon which we can evolve and develop our business. Furthermore, G.O.L.D.s centralised data management capabilities will enable us to better manage our procurement and merchandising processes as well as controlling overall stock and replenishment and thus better serve our franchises with increased service levels.
DYNADRO validates Aldata as one of the leaders in the Dutch retail sector and their selection affirms that G.O.L.D. is the solution which best meets the business needs not only for centralised franchise operations but which also serves as the foundation for future business and I.T. evolutions. As with other Aldata customers in this sector, the starting point is not a big bang approach but to centralise critical operations and co-exist with existing systems. Then, in line with planned company developments, future system evolutions can springboard from this core base states Dominique CHAMBAS, VP International Sales of Aldata Solution and Deputy Managing Director of Aldata Solution S.A. He concludes The project implementation is planned to be complete by September 2005.
