Instore plc, a leading general merchandise retailer with 320 stores, has decided to use the Aldata G.O.L.D.
Supply Chain Management software to support its retail operations throughout the UK. The order covers Aldata G.O.L.D. modules for central data management, warehouse management, order management, replenishment optimisation, store inventory management and automated allocation. The project will start immediately with the warehouse management system planned for implementation in Summer, 2006.
Instore operates from its headquarters and a 300,000 sq ft warehouse in Huddersfield.
Instore needs to transform its retail estate while simultaneously improving operational efficiencies across the business. In order to sustain and accelerate this change we need to have reliable information systems that help us achieve this goal in a cost effective manner says Trevor Coates, CEO of Instore plc.
"Aldata G.O.L.D. is an ideal solution for Instore as it has retail and distribution best-practice built-in and has a simple technical architecture that is easy to manage, says Les Thomas, IT Director at Instore. We are expecting significant business benefits to flow quickly from this project and we are keen to avoid large scale ERP implementations that could take years.
Mark Croxton (pictured), MD of Aldata Solution UK, adds: "The Aldata G.O.L.D. software suite is both integrated and modular allowing for flexibility of implementation. Aldatas implementation methodology allows fast, low-risk and cost-effective implementation by leveraging the skills Instore already has, and introducing a few very experienced consultants at the right times."
