In the spirit of the brand slogan “The colleagues from the trade,” the 750 employees of the wholesale company FAMO GmbH & Co. KG from Oldenburg attach particular importance to the personal and cooperative collaboration with the specialist dealers, craftsmen, and plumbers they supply. Every day, 8,300 deliveries of installation materials, electrical appliances, building services, tools, lights, steel, bicycle accessories, or sanitary articles leave the two central warehouses in Oldenburg and Mönchengladbach. In total, they supply the 22 FAMO branches in the north and west of Germany with a range of around 30,000 articles. From there, the goods reach the installers and skilled craftsmen who install them at the end customers.
In the past, a very universally designed ERP system was the working basis for the scheduling team, but it severely limited them. As a supplement to the existing ERP system, the ADD*ONE solution suite for inventory optimization now handles planning and creates order proposals.
The switch to working with ADD*ONE for efficient and sustainable inventory management has primarily provided more detail and transparency in looking at items, inventory, and future needs.
