Over recent years the grocery market has changed beyond all recognition. The increased importance of grocery eCommerce and the strong showing of lower cost retailers has required a major re-think from all participants as to their market strategy and fulfillment approach.
We have worked with major grocery retailers around the world to allow them to develop and adapt their fulfillment strategies, thus enabling them to drive profitability in a challenging market.
Consumer habits are forever evolving, and the ability to understand and rapidly support the changing needs of the grocery retailer are critical to their success. Our grocery sector expertise and leading Matflo supply chain software solutions tailored specifically for the Grocery fulfillment sector are key to achieving these goals.
Store-friendly deliveries, increased SKU ranges, evolution of backroom storage space into mini fulfillment centers (micro-fulfillment), in some case automation supported, home delivery and click & collect are the key challenges that need to be addressed in order to optimize retail fulfillment supply chains. The capture and publishing of accurate real-time inventory positions is key to maximizing product availability both in store and on the web.
Our Fulfilment Centre Management System (Matflo FCMS) and In-store (Matflo In-Store) systems deliver a co-ordinated approach to eCommerce grocery fulfillment from both ‘Dark Stores’ and traditional stores. Automated dark stores are also fully supported. We believe our overall capability and product range in this sector is unique.
