Supply Chain Magazine looked back on our long history with Stokomani which started in 2015 and continues today with our new integrated Supply Chain platform, AZAP4.0!
The French specialist in physical destocking (10 to 15 store openings per year) has been a long-time customer since it has relied since 2015 on the previous generation of Azap’s APS (Advanced Planning & Scheduling System). For the record, he had also established his pre-selection of publishers by first consulting the “For your calls for tenders” section of Supply Chain Magazine! Thanks to Azap and the establishment of a sales forecasting unit, Stokomani was able to manage the impact on its store supplies of the strong development of its network (in particular the peak of 24 store openings between 2018 and 2019).
In 2019, it extended the use of the Azap solution to the calculation of its supplier orders for so-called permanent products, based on store sales forecasts and taking into account purchasing and logistics constraints. This year, the new stage of this evolving partnership consists in using the Azap4.0 module to work specifically on the optimization of contingency stocks, these safety stocks calculated for each family of products according to a target service rate.
