The perfume and cosmetics retailer originally chose AGR for their inventory optimisation solution back in 2010. After careful planning, they decided the time was right to upgrade both their AGR installation and their version of Dynamics NAV. The plan set a go live with AGR V5.1 at the beginning of March. This was done with users seeing a smooth transition with no downtime for their forecasting and planning system.
The new version allowed them to take advantage of the new functionality on offer in Version 5.1 including the web-enabled architecture that allows the flexible delivery of the solution to users anywhere, wherever they want to work. It also gave them the ability to group products together in ways that suit the approach you want to take to forecasting and planning.
They also took advantage of the upgrade process to extend the use of AGR across their entire supply chain, including store replenishment, rather than just for the purchasing aspects covered by AGR prior to the upgrade. The subsequent upgrade of their ERP system to Dynamics NAV 2013, carried out by their Microsoft ERP partner, The NAV People, went smoothly over the Easter break and now both systems are delivering the additional functionality the business was looking to get.
Next step for SpaceNK is to roll the AGR solution out across their US operation, something they plan to make happen in the next three months.
