SUNBURY, Pa. — Weis Markets, a 164-store chain here, will use the Demand-Driven Replenishment solution for store ordering from Retalix, Dallas, to optimize its overall in-stock position and reduce excess inventory in its stores.
"We wanted a system that could provide demand-based forecasting and replenishment and assist us in optimizing our inventory,” said Bob Mawyer, vice president of information technology at Weis Markets, in a statement. "In addition, we expect [the system] to help us drive sales and improve our customer experience by reducing out-of-stocks, while making our operations more efficient and reducing overall costs."
Weis Markets plans to roll out the Demand-Driven Replenishment system this year, and it will also be integrated with the other Retalix systems already used by the grocer, including supply chain management solutions and the HQ/Store pricing and merchandising system.
The Demand-Driven Replenishment system is based on Microsoft technologies, and is comprised of four modules: Demand Forecasting, Inventory Management, Order Optimization and Analytics. It contains proprietary algorithms to interpret demand and optimize replenishment orders.
