Furniture and Electronics Retailer Turns to Logility (LGTY) to Improve End-to-End Supply Chain Visibility
ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Logility Inc., a leading supplier of collaborative solutions to optimize the supply chain, today announced Nebraska Furniture Mart, a complete one-stop home furnishings retailer, serving Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri and soon Dallas-Fort Worth, has selected Logility Voyager Solutions" to help the company plan for and manage its growth into new markets. To meet its goal of 75 percent growth by 2015, Nebraska Furniture Mart has embarked on an aggressive supply chain transformation project alongside a business improvement effort to streamline operations and accelerate the flow of information and products.
As Nebraska Furniture Mart assessed its current operations and where it plans to be, it became apparent the systems and processes in supply chain and logistics lacked the breadth and depth of functionality vital to achieving its goals. The retailer required end-to-end supply chain visibility from demand and supply planning to supplier collaboration and new product introductions through to freight planning. Nebraska Furniture Mart turned to Logility Voyager Solutions to quickly solve these challenges and to help ensure its long-term success.
As we look to grow our business we must optimize our business processes and technology to ensure our success, said Jay Buchanan, director-global supply chain and logistics, Nebraska Furniture Mart. Logility Voyager Solutions is the best fit for supporting our growth plans and delivering the end-to-end supply chain management we require. The intuitive and easy to use software includes streamlined workflow management that will enable our team to stay focused on improving supply chain efficiency.
In the retail business, managing new product introductions can be a challenge, especially for a company like Nebraska Furniture Mart which sells products across several categories including furniture, electronics, appliances, and flooring. Voyager Solutions will deliver improved demand profiles, more accurate forecasting and greater supplier collaboration to allow Nebraska Furniture Mart to manage new product introductions and store growth more effectively, develop robust inventory plans to minimize stock-outs and satisfy customer demand, and capitalize on the benefits of improved freight management.
With an aggressive growth plan, Nebraska Furniture Mart is taking important steps to ensure its long-term success, said Mike Edenfield, president and CEO, Logility. The addition of Logility Voyager Solutions will support their business and accelerate the companys ability to develop advanced supply chain business processes that will help drive bottom line results through improved supply chain efficiencies and better customer service.
