Wesco Selects Retalix DemandAnalytX

PLANO, Texas-- Wesco on the Go, a self-distributed operator of over 50 convenience stores, selected Retalix’s DemandAnalytX (DAX) forecasting and replenishment solution for a company-wide implementation.

Retalix DemandAnalytX (DAX) is a demand forecasting and replenishment solution that enables retailers, manufacturers and distributors to improve product availability, inventory management and overall supply chain efficiency. DemandAnalytX utilizes unique algorithms to interpret POS sales data and inventory data, forecast store-level demand and optimize replenishment orders, while taking into account the full complexity of the c-store retail environment.

Wesco operates self-distribution to its 51 convenience stores in the state of Michigan. The company has been using the Power Enterprise software suite, which was developed by IDS and acquired by Retalix in 2005. Wesco is the first customer to integrate DAX with Power Enterprise.

Rachelle Osborn, director of information technology for Wesco, said, "Our commitment to service is key to our success, and Retalix DemandAnalytX will help us provide fast, friendly service by reducing out-of-stocks and improving the ordering process. Store orders and on-hand information will feed directly to our current Retalix Power Enterprise system in our warehouse to ensure the same goal. The investment in DAX will help us to continue growing into one of the premier companies in the convenience store industry."

Victor Hamilton, CEO of Retalix USA, said, "We are very excited with the opportunity to provide an integrated end-to-end solution combining Wesco's existing Power Enterprise suite with DAX. This is a tangible demonstration of the synchronized retail and distribution approach that Retalix is uniquely positioned to deliver to our customers, and illustrates the great synergy of our combined product offering spanning the warehouse to checkout."

Project work is already under way and the first stores will go live in 2006. The rollout to the full chain will be completed in the first half of 2006.
