Tunisian Car Distributor Increases Sales, Reduces Stock Despite Challenging Financial Environment
- LOUIS–(BUSINESS WIRE/AETOSWire)– Demand Management, Inc., a leading global resource for cloud-based supply chain management solutions, announced today that ITALCAR, a Tunisian dealer of cars and trucks, has chosen Demand Solutions® as its new supply chain planning platform.
A subsidiary of the IDM Group, ITALCAR represents Iveco in Tunisia with two other dealers, and exclusively represents Fiat, Alfa Romeo, Jeep, Lancia, and Petronas oils. The company also provides after-sales vehicles for distributed brands and sales of spare parts and accessories. ITALCAR has 180 employees across three locations in Tunisia.
Until recently, ITALCAR ran its business using a standard MRP system and spreadsheets, which made it difficult for the company to make progress towards its ambitious business performance goals. ITALCAR deployed Demand Solutions to improve visibility, increase sales, reduce stock levels, offer a greater variety of parts, and put itself in a better position to negotiate part costs with vendors.
“Our initial results from Demand Solutions left no room for doubt,” said Teymour Elhicheri, Group IT Director, ITALCAR. “Demand Solutions Demand Planning and Requirements Planning are already helping us drive our business forward in a challenging economic environment in our country. With the Tunisian Dinar being devalued, we wanted to reduce our financial risk by cutting our stock levels by at least one-third while at the same time increasing our sales. We’ve already achieved these goals with Demand Solutions.”
“We are always excited to work with companies like ITALCAR that have set specific metrics for supply chain planning success,” said Bill Harrison, president of Demand Management. “ITALCAR has achieved truly impressive goals with Demand Solutions—and we’ve only just begun our partnership. We look forward to helping them continue to exceed expectations as they grow their business, increase visibility and further automate their planning process.”
