PetSmart Inc. is automating and optimizing demand planning and replenishment processes across the enterprise.

The specialty pet retailer will roll out demand planning and replenishment technology from Relex Solutions to plan demand for its more than 1,650 stores, distribution centers, and e-commerce site.

PetSmart intends to achieve end-to-end, integrated planning capabilities that will help improve the accuracy of its demand forecasts, replenishment and allocation. The retailer also seeks to automate and enhance planning efficiency across operational areas.

“We are excited to partner with Relex Solutions to help us better streamline our demand planning and replenishment processes,” said Jim Persinger, senior VP of merchandise planning and allocation at PetSmart. “We’re confident the Relex solution is the right tool to help us reach our goals around forecast accuracy, availability, and better serve the needs of our pet parents.”
