Bunzl UK & Ireland has selected RELEX Solutions, provider of unified retail planning systems, to optimise inventory through their forecasting and replenishment solutions.
RELEX will service Bunzl’s UK & Ireland distribution businesses, which supply a range of more than 100,000 products including food packaging, disposable supplies, catering equipment, healthcare consumables, and cleaning and safety products to supermarkets, retailers, hospitality outlets, and many other users.
The new solution – which leverages AI and machine learning – will enable Bunzl to optimise their inventory, automating optimal inventory distribution to reduce over- or under-stocking risks. It also provides Bunzl with the capability to implement a more holistic approach to planning using data to improve operations and efficiency.
“We had a thorough selection process and evaluated many vendors. RELEX has such a strong reputation and proved during our initial Proof of Concept their capability and effectiveness,” said Matt Kyte, IT Director at Bunzl UK & Ireland. “The AI-driven solution combined with support from the RELEX team enables us to optimise our inventory and efficiently manage our businesses in a reliable way.”
“RELEX is delighted to be working with Bunzl on this project in the UK & Ireland,” added Paul Cowley, Sales Director at RELEX. “By enhancing inventory planning, we expect to see improved efficiency throughout the supply chain.”
