Dallas -- Weis Markets has selected Retalix's Demand-Driven Replenishment solution to optimize its overall in-stock position and reduce excess inventory and out-of-stocks in its stores.
“We wanted a system that could provide demand-based forecasting and replenishment and assist us in optimizing our inventory. Retalix's Demand-Driven Replenishment solution was the ideal fit," said Bob Mawyer, VP of information technology at Weis Markets, Sunbury, Pa., which operates 164 stores.
In addition, Mawyer said, Weiss expects the solution to help it drive sales and improve its customer experience by reducing out-of-stocks, while making it operations more efficient and reducing overall costs.
The Demand-Driven Replenishment system is a demand forecasting and store replenishment system based on Microsoft technologies. It is comprised of four modules: Demand Forecasting, Inventory Management, Order Optimization and Analytics. It contains proprietary algorithms to interpret demand and optimize replenishment orders.
Weis Markets plans to roll out the Demand-Driven Replenishment system this year, and it will also be integrated with the other Retalix systems already used by the grocer.
