)-- To-Increase, a provider of retail and Warehouse Management Systems (WMS) built on Microsoft Dynamics technology, offers a supply chain management case study illustrating the success experienced by Norway's largest mail order firm, SparKjøp, since implementation of Microsoft Dynamics AX.
The blog post, "Retail Supply Chain Management Case Study: Microsoft Dynamics Eliminates Software Over-Visibility," begins by illustrating the challenges experienced by Norwegian retailer, SparKjøp, as it suffered through a retail supply chain management process overseen by several disparate software systems.
“Reports came from different departments and the information that was available in the stores was not accessible from the mail order division or any of our retail outlets," states Terje Nymark Olsen, SparKjøp’s IT Manager. "This meant a lot of double registration of data.”
Because so many disparate software systems were being used, each of SparKjøp’s retail stakeholders were being forced to interact with several different systems at each stage of the supply chain.
"When everyone involved in retail supply chain management – from warehouse and IT managers to store employees and customers – must interact with several systems at each stop in the supply chain, software is anything but invisible," states post author Luciano Cunha, Global Industry Director, To-Increase.
Since implementation of Microsoft Dynamics AX, SparKjøp has experienced significant improvements in its supply chain processes. The most predominant improvement Microsoft Dynamics AX has helped SparKjøp achieve is complete supply chain visibility from a single, dedicated source.
“All supply chain information is now gathered in one place," concludes Olsen. "This means that every link in our chain has full overview as to what is in stock and where – both at headquarters and in each of our retail locations.”
