Leading supplier in flow technology and industrial rubber. Seven facilities from Luleå in the north to Malmö in the south. 40,000 items in the range. Sells to industrial customers such as Ericsson and Scania as well as to craftsmen and resellers of plumbing.

Uses Dynamics AX as a business system

THE PROBLEM

Lundgren's Sweden ist einer der führenden Anbieter des Landes für Strömungstechnik und Industriekautschuk. Bei bis zu 40.000 Artikeln im Sortiment sind optimierte Lagerbestände entscheidend für das Geschäft.

Die richtige Ware auf Lager zu haben ist eine Herausforderung. Bisher wurden Einkäufe mit Listen im Einkaufssystem abgewickelt, in denen Bestellpunkte basierend auf Lagerbeständen und Verkaufshistorie mit Vorlaufzeiten berechnet wurden. Dann war es leicht, zu viel zu kaufen, sagt Mikael Johansson, Einkäufer am Hauptsitz von Lundgren in Askim und Projektleiter für die Implementierung von SOLO.

-Das Ziel war es, die Verkaufsgeschwindigkeit zu erhöhen, die Lagerbestände zu optimieren und unseren Service für die Kunden zu verbessern. Früher oder später müssen diese Probleme angegangen werden, sagt Mikael Johansson

THE SOLUTION

Lundgren's implemented SOLO and the integration with Microsoft AX was handled by PromoSoft and Lundgren's IT supplier. SOLO bases purchasing proposals on automatically calculated forecasts, optimized order points and order quantities. Purchase orders are sent to external suppliers and between the own facilities and production orders are also created for tailor-made products.

And the journey is not over yet. "When we feel that everything is set up correctly, we consider adding more functions, such as load carrier optimization, which ensures that containers are filled with optimal quantities of the right goods," says Mikael.

THE VALUE SOLO ADDS

I get a good overview of the entire flow and control over the information - history, sales and purchase proposals. I feel safe with the purchase volumes and trust the system, says Mikael Johansson.

- By providing SOLO with the right information, we have completely different opportunities to control our warehouses than before.

Purchasing Manager Kjell Johansson:

- SOLO clearly saves working time for buyers, the level of service on frequent items has improved and our turnover rate is also increasing slowly but surely, which is very positive.
