Grocery Retailer "Simply Market" Gets Real-Time Inventory Management for Its Distribution Centers
“Aldata has helped us significantly improve the flow and management of inventory at our distribution centers (DCs). A lot of the produce held at the DCs is perishable and has a very short shelf-life. It’s important that the right products get shipped at the right time. Staff have been very positive towards the Aldata implementation, and in particular the PDA-based voice directed warehousing solution, which has already shown to improve pick accuracy and productivity.” Marcel Niogret, Simply Market.
WHO IS THE CUSTOMER?
Simply Market is part of the Auchan Group – a global top 30 retailer. Through its 303 stores in France, Simply Market prides itself on offering customers ‘market fresh’ produce at ‘permanently low’ prices.
