To boost their market leading levels of customer satisfaction, Irelands largest distributor of premium automotive parts has taken the decision to implement Slimstock’s inventory optimisation solution, Slim4. As a company that is dedicated to ensuring the best possible customer experience, this move will further improve the automotive parts supplier’s already impressive levels of availability across their extensive range while also optimising supply chain costs.

J&S Automotive started out in 1977 as a humble motor factor based in the North of the city. Today, the automotive specialist has grown to offer the largest range of premium parts, tools & automotive services available in the Irish market. With over 100,000 parts in stock and partnerships with Europe’s leading OE manufacturers, J&S provide customers with an unrivalled level of choice and flexibility: a key differentiator which has contributed to the business’ year on year growth since its inception.

As part of the business’ commitment to ensuring continuous improvement across all procedures and processes, J&S will implement Slimstock inventory management to optimise their investment in inventory and to achieve further improvements in service levels. “We consistently strive to achieve zero lost sales and zero late deliveries for each and every customer. As our business grows, it is essential that we pursue every opportunity to further improve our customer’s experience,” explains Paul Flynn, Purchasing Director at J&S Automotive.

With the goal of eradicating out of stocks and enhancing overall availability, this project will better position the purchasing teams to make strategic supply chain decisions. Once implemented, Slim4 with provide the planning team with greater visibility as well as provide greater control over the ever-expanding assortment.

“As a company that strives to set the standard in customer care, we are excited to partner with the team at J&S automotive as they drive further efficiencies across their business,” concludes Richard Evans, Managing Director at Slimstock UK.
