Aldata Solution, a global provider of integrated merchandise management and supply chain solutions for high volume retailers, today announced that Smart & Final, Inc., one of the leading grocery retailers in the Western US and Northern Mexico, has implemented Aldatas G.O.L.D. suite of retail merchandising solutions on-time and on-budget.
The scope of the implementation includes Aldatas headquarters operations, warehouse management and replenishment optimisation solutions. Aldata was chosen because it was able to tackle the challenging requirements of managing fresh foods throughout the supply chain lifecycle and being able to handle Smart & Final high volumes of items, transactions and locations.
The go-live at Smart & Final (at its headquarters and at one of its warehouses) is the first phase of a comprehensive supply chain initiative for the retailer and should enable it to efficiently manage the more than 40,000 food and foodservice items that flow through its distribution network on a daily basis.
According to Zeke Duge, SVP and CIO of Smart & Final, Aldatas G.O.L.D. suite replaces aging systems at Smart & Final that did not support our diversification and growth, and the Topase replenishment optimization has provided us with an initial 18% reduction in stock we needed to carry in the warehouse. I am delighted with Aldatas G.O.L.D. and its smooth and on-time implementation.
Neil Thall, CEO of Aldata Solution, Inc., comments, Our successful implementation at Smart & Final demonstrates the type of expertise, functionality and results we have been providing to European retailers for years. Aldatas solutions are uniquely positioned to provide grocery retailers the edge they need to manage their complex, fast-paced environments. We feel confident that Smart & Final will achieve a rapid return on investment and we look forward to working closely with them as our US expansion continues to gain momentum.
Smart & Final plans to roll out Aldatas product suite at additional locations later this summer.
The implementation includes:
Aldata G.O.L.D. Central for the management of headquarters functions
Aldata G.O.L.D. Stock for warehouse management
Aldata G.O.L.D. Topase for warehouse replenishment optimization
