Delhaize Group Signs Major Contract with Aldata - Update
Delhaize Group, a top 30 global retailer and the leading supermarket and convenience store retailer in Belgium, has selected Aldata G.O.L.D. to deliver real-time visibility and control of inventory across its European central merchandising and supply chain operations. Under the terms of the agreement Aldata G.O.L.D. will service more than 800 stores and 7 warehouses. Delhaize's decision to select Aldata G.O.L.D. was the result of an extensive 12-month review of systems from several major software suppliers.
"Delhaize is known for providing quality products and services at competitive prices, so we must operate as efficiently as possible to keep our customer promise," said Luc Koenot, European IT Director, Delhaize Group. "With Aldata G.O.L.D. in place, we will be able to improve store order efficiencies and simultaneously reduce stock levels and the number of out-of-stocks in each store. We will also optimize inventory levels across our warehouses and therefore improve replenishment throughout our supply chain."
"Today any new technology investment by a major retailer comes under very close scrutiny for the value it can deliver to their business," said Dominique Chambas, Senior Vice President of Aldata. "We are therefore particularly pleased to be selected by Delhaize at this time for this strategic project and look forward to its successful implementation throughout Europe."
Aldata G.O.L.D. is used by retailers globally to provide clear visibility and optimization of their supply chain from supplier to customer. Its unified retail architecture with multiple modules can be implemented in rapid ROI stages to address each company's specific needs. Aldata applications include: master data management, forecasting and replenishment, logistics and distribution, store and merchandising, supplier and order management, plus loyalty and marketing systems.
