UK tyres giant choses Syncron software to support expansion

Tyre wholesaler Micheldever Tyre Services has selected Syncron software to reduce inventory levels, increase availability and reduce operating costs. 

Micheldever Tyre Services (MTS) has licensed Syncrons Supply Chain Planning solution to achieve more efficient management of its supply chain. Syncron will help MTS reduce inventory levels, increase availability and reduce the cost of purchasing. The Syncron solution is also expected to reduce the amount of inter-location trucking between MTS distribution network and 50 retail outlets, as well as ensuring that storage costs are contained at current levels.

Micheldever Tyre Services is management-owned and currently growing aggressively through acquisitions.  

As we continue our expansion strategy, a unified supply chain process will be absolutely critical to our success. We needed a standard solution that could be rapidly deployed to provide tangible results in our business within the next financial year, says Mike Flood, Operation Director at Micheldever Tyre Services. Syncron demonstrated that its technology could be easily implemented despite the complexity of our supply chain, with no changes required to our existing infrastructure.  

Syncron was selected after a rigorous evaluation process where 29 software vendors were compared. The Syncron Supply Chain Planning solution will be implemented as a process layer on top of Micheldever Tyre Services existing ERP system. 

High-growth companies in all industries are increasingly aware of the importance of excellent supply chains, to enable leading customer service levels while keeping operating costs down, says Anders Grudn, CEO at Syncron. We are very proud to have met Micheldevers requirements and look forward to helping them build a competitive supply chain to support their growth.
