Proffsmagasinet improves inventory turnover and service levels with EazyStock

“Inventory turnover and service levels have definitely improved. Now EazyStock makes sure we purchase the right levels of stock to ensure product availability and we can focus on other things.”Quote

- Peer Dahlgren, Purchasing Director at Proffsmagasinet.​

ProffsmagasinetProffsmagasinet is Sweden’s leading online builders merchants of trade goods. They sell and deliver a wide range of trade tools, accessories, measurement instruments and hardware products, as well as safety and workwear.

The challenge: Rapid growth and a need for automation

With Proffsmagasinet experiencing 40% growth in recent years, this impressive and rapid success led to some obvious operational challenges.

As the inventory range grew, so did their need to carry out constant calculations (and re-calculations) of stock rules, to ensure product availability at all times. This became time consuming for the building merchants, who were using manual processes and often ‘gut feel’ to make inventory management decisions.

The solution: EazyStock + Visma ERP

Proffsmagasinet contacted Exsitec, providers of IT-systems, who recommended EazyStock as a complement to their ERP, Visma Business.

”At a time when we were constantly growing, it was time-consuming and inefficient to have to continually calculate optimal inventory levels. After a year, the calculation was out-of-date and totally irrelevant, so you had to do it again. It simply wasn’t possible to keep the calculations updated”.

The result: 20% reduction in inventory levels within six months

The integration of EazyStock with Visma Business was fast and smooth, and Proffsmagasinet quickly began to see measurable results.

Proffsmagasinet has a range of 26,000 products, of which approximately 9,000 are kept in stock, so it’s of the uttermost importance that they keep their inventory at the optimal levels. With a tool that shows obsolete items and trends, the organisation can avoid stocking too much and get support to ensure optimised purchasing levels.
