Univar, a long-established UK based distributor of quality industrial consumables, selected Codestone an automated in-store order processing solution for its luxury automotive customer.
The solution extends the planned SAP B1 implementation to provide an innovative BPA-based inventory replenishment system. Production line staff generate orders to Univar’s fulfilment systems using a custom portal, with stock movements and invoicing automated as each order is fulfilled.
Based on the SAP Cloud platform, it has transformed a labour-intensive process into a quick, easy and streamlined ‘pick, deliver and bill’ solution for Univar and its client, increasing visibility of every item ordered, and providing a breakdown of spend by product over time.
With plans to roll out the solution to other clients, Univar has increased its competitiveness in the market for in-store inventory management solutions.
