Supply Chain Optimisation at Brymec

The Challenge

Brymec supplies a highly demanding market, the
building trade, with the components they need to get
the job done. Delays in the supply chain have a huge
impact on cost.

A family run business, Brymec has thrived in this
marketplace with a simple promise: “We deliver, on
site, on time, every time”. This has led to rapid growth
and success.

One side effect of maintaining this growth and keeping
its promise was that Brymec spent more time
managing stock levels and pricing reports from manual
ERP exports and Excel.

It became apparent that this was not sustainable.

Our Solution

An automated solution was required to gather
information from various parts of the business
(including the ERP system, phone logs, delivery
records and CRM) then merge this to deliver the
required insights.

Working with Quick Intelligence, Brymec began to
replicate and automate existing reports within a
relatively short space of time. Additional data was then
brought in and blended to extend the insight.

Qlik is now used in almost every area of the business
on a daily basis, and that usage is still growing.

The Results

Faster access to important information and greater confidence in that information, has enabled Brymec to not only maintain the On Time In Full promise, but also improve upon it.

Increased efficiencies in supply chain management has identified the fast-moving items requiring stock increase, with savings also made by reducing stock levels for those which are sold less frequently.

Confidence in expected orders and stock availability has allowed Brymec to start sourcing some items from overseas, delivering significant savings. In passing these savings on to customers, Brymec has grown its competitive advantage.

This has brought about major cost savings and mitigated out-of-stock risks.
