The project in details
In 2008, AB Inbev started using the collaborative replenishment solution of Generix Group to better manage their stock. Due to the ever-increasing demands of the consumer, this became essential for more retailers and AB Inbev had a growing need for the then current VMI solution.
Over the years, the Generix Group solution has expanded to become the current Generix Collaborative Replenishment. In addition to the focus on stock optimisation, transport efficiency is also taken into account. AB Inbev was one of the first to jump on the wagon to be able to focus even better on the requirements of the market.
Today, Generix Group has put together an international project team to meet the further needs of AB Inbev and its retailers. In this way, expansion to other countries and their local retailers can be achieved relatively easily.
