Retail Case Study
Foschini Group Reduces Logistics Cost by 10%
Supply Chain Junction assisted the transformation of their supply chain and continues to do so in an ongoing process, building success upon success.
The legacy system was struggling to cope with the sharp peaks in customer demand and the need to adapt to change in a short space of time. They needed much more flexibility and a template for quick, effective roll-out across divisions.
Manhattan's retail and domain expertise made it an obvious choice, not only highly ranked by independent analysts but by positive results. The first site implementation was complete within 12 months but created a template for other sites; the second site was live after just two months. The WMS was delivered on time and under budget, and within two days of going live was shipping in excess of their store distribution plan.
"We have met one of our main objectives in that we have designed a series of system templates which can be dropped into the remaining sites. Whereas it may previously have taken us up to six months to deploy cross-docking with our legacy system, we can now do the same thing in a matter of days,” explained Jan Tukker.
Global Shipping & Logistics Accelerates Middle East Expansion
In their quest to becoming the leading 3PL provider in the UAE, GSL evaluated several solutions - they felt strongly that the partner companies that form a supply chain should be able to exchange critical supply chain data at any time.
GSL wanted to deploy the most advanced supply chain solutions available on the market in order to become the number one warehousing service in the Middle East in both size and inventory handling services.
Manhattan Associates solution provided flexibility, full visibility and integrated billing management upon implementation; they continue to be able to scale up with the change in business and solution demands.
The results have exceeded expectations:
Products for 40+ blue-chip clients filled two new warehouses within seven months of going live; clients place and track orders online; inventory accuracy averages 99.8%; IT manpower requirements are minimal; people can be trained on the system very easily. Business has been so successful that GSL commissioned phases two and three of the project, building out five more warehouses within 18 months.
