Stokomani chooses Generix Group to optimise its transport management

Paris, 3 April 2014 – To keep up with a transport plan that is increasingly dense and complex, Stokomani, specialist in top brand clearance sales, relies on the GCS TMS solution of Generix Group, editor of collaborative software for the Supply Chain and retail ecosystem. Stokomani and Generix made their TMS contract official at the SITL trade fair.

Press release

Founded in 1961, Stokomani started out in retailing end-of-line clothing. Today it uses two logistics platforms covering a total area of 60,000 m2 and records good annual growth. Its objective is to have 50 shops by the end of 2014, i.e. six openings this year. Each year, Stokomani proposes over 20,000 references in the fashion, household, beauty, and toy sectors. Accelerated development and the installation of points of sale all over France have made Stokomani decide to invest in a transport management solution.

“We needed to continue upgrading our Supply Chain tools to confirm our continued growth and improve our organization thanks to transporting performance measures”, explains Jean-Edmond Puig, Director of Supply Chain for Stokomani.

“We chose GCS TMS, a reference tool on the market; users appreciate its ergonomics, and it is quick and easy to implement”, he states.

GCS TMS is designed to help drive down transport costs, improve fill rates, and optimize carrier allocation. This comprehensive solution guarantees a quick response and reliable timekeeping, minimum stock levels, and full control of flow management. Stokomani, which already had GCS WMS and GCS KPIs Cockpit, secures and facilitates its logistics circuit thanks to native integration of different tools. Having a global Supply Chain solution offers a simultaneous view of both warehouse and transport options. “This solution will also allow us to optimize our information flows thanks to the collaborative portal for carriers, making it easier to organize time slots, carry out pre-invoicing and Track & Trace. Improving communications with our points of sale and monitoring budgets are two essential elements of our organization, which we want to continually make more responsive and efficient”, adds Jean-Edmond Puig. Improving administrative productivity was a key factor in Stokomani’s decision. In fact, a new methodology, proposed by Generix Group, is being used to implement the project: TMS QuickStart. This TMS product optimizes transport purchases and makes it possible to control the budget within an optimal time scale, thus ensuring rapidity and quality. GCS TMS is part of the GCS range (Generix Collaborative Supply Chain), a set of solutions managing all logistics operations for an integrated and collaborative Supply Chain: supply, goods-in, storage, order picking, shipment and transport, inter and intra-company integration, collaborative B2B portal, etc. Generix Collaborative Supply Chain is a market reference and leader used daily by major companies such as Carrefour, Coca-Cola, Conforama, E. Leclerc, Henkel, Kuehne & Nagel, Leroy Merlin, and Unilever.

A few words on the Generix Collaborative Supply Chain range:

GCS WMS helps to manage warehouse resources and activities in order to optimize logistics and adapt to new distribution formats. GCS KPIs Cockpit helps with tactical decisions on a daily basis and facilitates the identification of strategic improvement avenues: organization, development opportunities, choice of investments, training, new model, etc. With GCS KPIs Cockpit, Generix Group offers supply chain actors a genuine logistics management tool.
