Supply chain management solutions provider Blue Yonder has been working with British retailer Marks & Spencer (M&S) to digitally transform its end-to-end supply chain.
Through its cloud-based Luminate Planning solutions portfolio, Blue Yonder said it has provided M&S with a more accurate view into demand by consolidating and synchronising demand signals as well as external variables across the retailers’ 1,000 stores.
M&S can now evaluate demand scenarios and use prescriptive recommendations to make more accurate decisions, from staging the right inventory through the distribution network to minimising stock-outs and maximising inventory turns, Blue Yonder added in a statement.
“By migrating to our cloud-based solution built on Microsoft Azure, M&S now has a more adaptive supply chain that can quickly pivot as customer demand changes — whether in stores, online or other channels,” said Johan Reventberg, president EMEA, Blue Yonder.
“M&S is a very strategic customer for Blue Yonder, we continue to enable the M&S transformation journey hand-in-hand with our strategic partners. It is exciting to participate in the acceleration of M&S’s transformation into a leaner, faster, bolder business.”
Strategic partner Tata Consultancy led the overall program delivery and implemented data and integration patterns as well as supporting enhancement of Power BI reports to M&S business KPIs for enhanced visibility on its business performance.
