Peppard Building Supplies has selected EazyStock inventory optimisation software in a strategic move said to focus on improving demand forecasting and inventory planning in 2021 and beyond.
In an industry where convenience and speed are critical to customer loyalty, Peppard Building Supplies states that it is committed to optimising its inventory management capabilities to ensure the products customers need are always in stock and ready for collection or drop-off.
By connecting EazyStock to its Merlin ERP system, it will be able to improve the accuracy of its demand forecasting and inventory planning, whilst removing the reliance on spreadsheets and manual calculations. Instead EazyStock will “dynamically forecast demand” and adjust planning parameters, such as reorder quantities and safety stock levels, providing automated purchasing recommendations to be fed back to the ERP for processing.
Nic Butler, Co-Owner of Peppard Building Supplies, said: “Our aim is to improve our order fulfilment capabilities, so we always have the right products available to meet our customers’ needs. EazyStock will give our team the knowledge and tools to do this. We also want to be more efficient at managing stock items and with EazyStock we hope to fully automate our inventory management processes, giving us more time to focus on our suppliers and customers.”
Peter Drakeley, Head of Customer Success at EazyStock, added: “We are very much looking forward to working with Nic and his team to enhance their inventory management operations. We’re committed to helping them improve their service levels and, at the same time, reduce the amount of stock they carry to free-up cashflow.
“We’ve been a member of the BMF for almost two years now because we’re confident our software and support team can help merchants and suppliers reduce inventory costs, improve stock availability and ultimately be more profitable.”
