ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- Wegmans here has selected Prescient, West Chester, Pa., to power its replenishment ordering process, Prescient announced yesterday. The retailer will use Prescient‘s Demand Planning and Inventory and Replenishment Planning modules to generate orders for approximately 800 vendors. In 2004, Wegmans implemented Prescient‘s on-demand replenishment program to generate orders for 200 of its vendors. With expansion to a second distribution center, Wegmans chose to replace its existing mainframe replenishment technology with Prescient‘s on-demand solution. “We had great results when we used Prescient for our first 200 vendors: Forecast accuracy increased by over 100%; days of supply decreased by 25%; and service levels rose,” said Tom Adelsberger, merchandising systems manager at Wegmans, in a statement. “We have aggressive plans--we want to add 600 vendors by mid-2007. We‘re confident that Prescient is the right solution to support us now, and in the future.”
