Retail Solutions - Allders opts for flexible delivery

Allders is increasing the flexibility of its home delivery by using Yantra's supply chain tools.

The company is investing in the Distributed Order Management, Inventory Synchronisation and Supply Collaboration modules of Yantra's suite, which will improve links with third-party logistics service providers, as well as provide online order tracking for customers.

The applications will improve efficiency by replacing a mix of partially manual operations and reducing resource requirements. The new system will mean that goods ordered from stores can be delivered direct from suppliers or distribution centres, using alternative carriers if this is a more efficient model, rather than automatically being dispatched on company delivery vehicles.

Allders director of IT John Tangaa said: 'Yantra will improve the efficiency of the order quotation and fulfilment process, reduce order cycle times and increase the volume of orders captured in-store.'
