Stockholm, Sweden – Lekang Group selects EazyStock as their inventory optimisation software. Lekang Group, consisting of Lekang Maskin AS Norway, Filterteknik AB Sweden and Filterteknik A/S Denmark, is the leading Scandinavian distributor and supplier of high quality filters for Construction, Highway, Off-Highway, Marine, Offshore, Industrial and Process markets.
Lekang Group was referred to EazyStock through their strategic partnership with Jeeves ERP. The client utilizes Jeeves ERP for their day to day inventory management capabilities, but they were looking to enhance their inventory operations to further optimise their supply chain. Lekang Group decided to add on and integrate EazyStock to their Jeeves ERP System. Bjørn Christiansen, ERP Manager for Lekang Group explains, “It was clear from the beginning that no ERP system can do what EazyStock does as well as a 3rd party system.”
He continues, “Service level improvement is the most important aspect of our EazyStock initiative. Prior to EazyStock, we had a large number of items and orders which took a lot of manual labor to check so we didn’t do it as often as we can now. Our old process led to us having an incorrect mix of inventory and EazyStock will help resolve this. We have already started seeing positive impacts after only 2 months, as our service levels have gone up and our inventory levels have gone down. Parts availability is the top priority for our business. We are very dependent on having the right items in stock and that customers can get deliveries when they need and want them.”
Peter Drakeley, Head of Customer Success for EazyStock , explains: “EazyStock automatically follows the different product life cycles of all the products on hand to generate accurate forecasts, reorder points and order quantities. The system ensures Lekang Group’s stock will have the optimum amount of products on hand without tying up unnecessary capital and inventory costs. The automatic generation of parameters and import capabilities into Jeeves will also make it possible for their purchasers to focus on more value added tasks related to their operations. With the help of EazyStock, Lekang Group aims to automate their optimisation processes to position the business to increase sales and profitability.”
With most technology on-boarding processes, Lekang Group was very eager to ensure a smooth transition with the integration and training of EazyStock. “Our EazyStock Customer Success Manager, Piotr Lisowski, has spent a lot of time with us to understand how the application works, and the impact on the work of our employees has been minimal. It was a smooth transition. In the future we intend to expand the use of EazyStock in our business,” said Bjørn.
