Family Farm & Home Unifying Space and Supply Chain Management
Family Farm & Home is taking steps to improve space planning and inventory management across its stores, distribution centers and online.
The Michigan-based retailer, which specializes in farm and rural lifestyle products, is extending its partnership with RELEX Solutions to add macrospace and microspace management, including floor planning, planogram optimization and space-aware replenishment. This service will integrate into the existing RELEX supply chain solution that was implemented in 2020 across Family Farm & Home’s distribution centers, online channels and 66 stores.
The new technology will fully integrate the retailer’s supply chain and space management operations, expected to provide greater control of data, as well as the ability to create cluster- and store-specific planograms, reduce manual touches, increase margin recognition, and improve inventory flow across the business.
Tim Fansler, Family Farm & Home co-president and CMO, cited RELEX’s value as the company modernizes its supply chain management. “We are pleased to grow our relationship with RELEX as we incorporate space management into a single, unified solution,” he added.
A major US retailer, renowned for its chain of hypermarkets and department stores, sought to revamp its post-payment audit program. The goal? To maximize lost revenue recovery and minimize future leakages.
For retailers, who rely on distributed IT infrastructure to support both in-store and eCommerce sales, weather-related outages like these could result in downtime or lost business data that severely disrupts the ability to do business.
