Specialized Distribution

Specialized distribution covers a wide variety of sectors: fresh and frozen products, decoration, DIY, office supplies, furniture, stock clearance, etc. However, what these players have in common is that they manage a large number of references on logistics platforms to satisfy an omnichannel demand (store network, e-commerce, home deliveries, etc.). It is therefore essential to understand the forecast demand for each product/distribution channel in order to meet it without stockouts or overstocking. The optimization of supplier supply conditions and stock levels is also essential to preserve your margins in a context of increasing complexity (multiplication of references, channels, promotions, catalogues, etc. Specialized distribution covers a wide variety of sectors: fresh and frozen products, decoration, DIY, office supplies, furniture, stock clearance, etc. However, what these players have in common is that they manage a large number of references on logistics platforms to satisfy an omnichannel demand (store network, e-commerce, home deliveries, etc.).

AZAP contribution to Specialized Distribution

We have developed solutions to optimize your Supply Chain to meet these challenges.

Manage product volume

AZAP manages for some of its customers more than 200,000 products in several hundred points of sale.

Optimize your upstream and downstream supplies

Within the same system, AZAP helps you to manage the two supply loops of your Supply Chain: the warehouse – store network loop and the supplier – warehouse loop. AZAP plans your supplies taking into account multiple constraints (suppliers, logistics, transport).

Take into account omnichannel distribution

AZAP accompanies you in the different stages of your omnichannel strategy. It calculates the forecast demand and the needs of each distribution channel (e-commerce, stores, drives, B2B …). It allows you to control your flows in a differentiated way.

Plan your highlights and your catalogs

AZAP builds your forecasts on the basis of your historical data and anticipates the seasonality of your high points, both at the warehouse exit and at the store exit. It automatically plans the quantities to be supplied, stored and distributed so that your distribution platforms and points of sale have all the references in the right quantity, at the right time. AZAP ensures the dynamic restocking of the stores.
AZAP takes into account the criteria for highlighting your products in your catalogs (photo size, positioning, promotion…) and estimates the impact on your sales.

Use your checkout cash disbursements

AZAP’s supply models use your checkout histories to best adjust to consumer demand.

“ We selected AZAP, which presented us with ergonomic, dynamic software at a competitive price. We were won over by their ability to manage both upstream and downstream supply, but also by a very pleasant and professional project and pre-project team. “
