Asda supercharges multi-channel switch
Supermarket giant Asda is optimising end-to-end operations as part of its multi-channel transformation with new technology
Asda will implement several SaaS-based capabilities within Blue Yonder’s Luminate Planning, Luminate Commerce and Luminate Logistics, as well as Luminate Control Tower, all running on the Luminate Platform.
With the company needing to transition from its legacy solutions as a result of moving to a UK-based ownership, Asda was looking for end-to-end retail solutions that would cover commercial, supply chain, logistics, and retail operations. This includes artificial intelligence (AI) powered forecasting, end-to-end supply chain visibility, omnichannel fulfilment, and workforce management capabilities.
With Blue Yonder, Asda will be able to use machine learning (ML) at scale to provide a demand projection with calculated business impact and risk that enables better inventory management, waste reduction and an improved understanding of demand drivers and customer behaviours.
It will also leverage ML to optimise pricing strategies reducing excess stock and avoid waste while delivering efficiency and value across the entire omnichannel retail business with a connected platform.
“We are embarking on a large-scale, exciting business transformation project to build our Future, in which we want to work with the very best retail technology providers in the market with proven experience and world-class capabilities,” said Carl Dawson, CIO, Asda.
