Grand Cru, one of the largest wine import and distribution companies in Latin America, had the challenge of managing an inventory of more than 1,000 types of wines: the lack of multiple SKU management and proper FIFO management has driven Grand Cru to face problems with wine oxidation. With many varieties of products with different demand profiles by store/region, Grand Cru faced complaints from clients such as missing store products that were available in other places in the chain.
Once Onebeat’s solution was applied, the Grand Cru team experienced measurable results. After only three months, Go-Live Grand Cru achieved a 20% inventory decline with a 50% shortage reduction. All operations became simpler and automated, allowing managers from the stores and headquarters to focus on clients and not manage numbers behind the scenes.
