NZ Safety Blackwoods Uses Advanced Analytics for Planning and Decision-making
NZ Safety Blackwoods sells industrial safety equipment, uniforms, and engineering and packaging supplies. It also offers specialized training courses and resources to help businesses keep their staff work-safe.
Business mergers meant a change in company structure and a broader requirement for consolidated information to be available. Essential sales and margin information, as well as inventory and stock data, were all very limited and often tied up in spreadsheets.
Logility helped NZ Safety Blackwoods use advanced analytics to track online and counter sales, and to isolate and remove one-off sales that were unlikely to be repeated. Users can now create their own unique or derivative reports, understand root causes and produce reliable forecasts to support sales planning.
