Crouzet relies on Colibri, our supply chain management tool, for its sales forecasts.
The company of the InnoVista Sensors group, founded in 1921 and based in Valencia, is the leader in the design and manufacture of components for automated systems.
Present in more than 140 countries, Crouzet has five production sites (in France, Morocco and China) and more than 1300 employees. In a very competitive context, it was important for Crouzet to find a tool that could support its SIOP (Sales, inventory & Operations Planning) process and promote collaboration between its logistics teams and its large international sales network.
Why make forecasts?
For Crouzet, an industrial company, the challenges are linked to increasing the agility of its Supply Chain by rapidly adapting the capacity of workshops and inbound logistics. The aim is to respond more and more effectively to a very large and diversified Customer Demand, within ever shorter deadlines
"Today in our highly volatile environments, we need to plan for the longer term, so we have to make forecasts, anticipate, to avoid further suffering," explains Camille Lodieu, logistics project manager for Crouzet.
The question of a new sales forecasting tool arose for Crouzet when an ERP change project was implemented.
In addition, with sales teams located in Europe, Asia and the United States, it was important to have a simpler and more collaborative tool. Needs that were not met by the Excel tool previously used.
"What seduced us in Colibri was its modernity. A collaborative tool, very ergonomic with multiple functionalities, unlike the very heavy Excel tool implemented over the past fifteen years," says Camille Lodieu.
And to continue: "we had an excellent relationship with Colibri who supported us on a daily basis in the pre-production base but also during the launch, deployment and construction of the dashboards".
