To increase its competitiveness as a leader on the Brazilian market, Carrefour Brasil chooses Generix' SaaS Supply Chain solution for the management of its warehouses, to be deployed in all distribution centers of the Carrefour Group through the country.

Generix Group, a global provider of collaborative SaaS Software solutions for the Supply Chain, industrial, and retail ecosystems, announces the evolution of the Carrefour Group's warehouse management (WMS) solution in Brazil to SaaS (Software as a Service) mode.

Carrefour has been using Generix Group solutions for many years in several countries around the world. Over the next 10 months, this evolution will take place in 12 Carrefour distribution centers throughout Brazil, including the largest in Brazil and one of the largest in the world, with more than 94,000 square meters.

In total, more than 280,000 square meters of storage area will be managed with Generix' solution in SaaS mode.

This is a strategic decision for the Carrefour group, as Brazil is the second largest market, after France, its native country. Therefore, the project has already been thought of for improvements, expansions, and new functionalities in the short/medium term.

The evolution in SaaS mode will help Carrefour to create a core model of management for the whole distribution center network. This model aims to bring much more agility for continuous improvement in the reshape of the logistic network. This uniformization is going to facilitate the evolution of existing warehouses or the opening of new ones and allow automation for the processes for each distribution center through the network. 

The new functionalities of the solution should allow performance growth with the use of new algorithms for interliving and slotting. Another main advantage of the solution is about the labor management, which will be much easier to monitor. 

In addition, the project includes the implementation of the Generix Datapower solution which will ensure an extensive use of Big Data and Data analytics technologies to the benefit of Carrefour operations. It grants a better mastering of the operating performance indicators in real time.

Our partnership with Carrefour is long-standing and we are very pleased to continue supporting the group in its market evolutions by providing highly scalable solutions that accompany this growth, such as WMS and Datapower. This major step responds to Carrefour's global strategy to migrate to the cloud”, comments Julien Boisnet, Chief Sales Officer of Generix Group.

“The migration of our solutions to SaaS opens the doors of Carrefour Brazil and the world for the complete digitization of the Supply Chain. This will allow us to optimize our operations with the high flexibility and scalability of Generix Group's WMS solution, which has been with us for many years worldwide. Furthermore, expanding to new features, such as slotting and triangulation, for example, in the near future is much simpler”
