Ace Hardware hits nail on head using Planalytics

Jun '07
Planalytics Inc announced that Ace Hardware Corp., the largest retailer-owned hardware cooperative in the industry, has selected the Planalytics Business Weather Intelligence platform to measure and manage weather-driven demand influences throughout the chain. Ace Hardware plans to integrate this intelligence into their current business processes.

"Planalytics provides unique opportunities for Ace Hardware and a solution that will bring significant returns on the investment within the first season, comments Frederic Fox, president and CEO at Planalytics Inc."

"Additionally, our solution provides a single point of view on the weather and its impact throughout the business, which enables more autonomous decision-making at all levels,‰ continues Fox."

"The weather has a significant impact on our business and its vital that we are able to anticipate and plan for these events. Proactively managing weather means that we can mitigate upcoming risks and take full advantage of capitalizing on opportunities that we would not otherwise have been prepared for."

"The intelligence fromPlanalytics can be used throughout our supply chain to support more effective strategic plans, improved seasonal inventory management and better targeted marketing and promotional programs based upon weather-driven changes in customer behavior."

"We will therefore be implementing Planalytics information as a best practice, prior to integration with our existing JDA Software environment so that the intelligence flows directly through our planning and inventory management processes, says Paul Sikes, director of inventory control for Ace Hardware Corp."
