Bunzl has invested in Relex software to optimise its companies’ inventory planning.

Bunzl UK and Ireland, which includes catering equipment companies Lockhart Catering Equipment, Aggora, Comax and Continental Chef Supplies, has selected Relex Solutions’ forecasting and replenishment software to optimise its inventory planning.

The new solution, which leverages AI and machine learning, should enable Bunzl to automate optimal inventory distribution to reduce over- or under-stocking risks. It is also designed to provide Bunzl with the ability to implement a more holistic approach to planning using data to improve operations and efficiency.

Bunzl UK and Ireland IT director Matt Kyte said: “We had a thorough selection process and evaluated many vendors. Relex has such a strong reputation and proved during our initial proof of concept their capability and effectiveness.
