Groupement Les Mousquetaires will roll out Hardis Group’s warehouse management system across integrated logistics sites for its food retail and home improvement brands. The deployment of Reflex WMS forms part of a broader information system transformation and supply chain performance improvement project.
Grenoble, May 26, 2021 – Hardis Group, a consulting firm, digital services company and independent software vendor, announces that Stime, the information system management subsidiary of Groupement Les Mousquetaires, has opted to deploy Reflex WMS to manage distribution warehouses for the group’s Intermarché, Netto, Bricomarché, Brico Cash, and Bricorama brands. Reflex was chosen on account of its ability to keep pace with evolving logistics requirements in the coming years. The group is one of only a handful of large food and non-food retailers to have in-house integrated logistics capability.
Groupement Les Mousquetaires is one of Europe’s leading large retailers, recording revenue of €46.3 billion in 2020. The group, which was founded in 1969, operates seven brands spanning food retail (Intermarché and Netto), home improvement (Bricomarché, Brico Cash and Bricorama), and mobility (Roady and Rapid Pare-Brise). Each day, it delivers supplies to 4,000 retail outlets from around 40 logistics sites in France, Belgium, Poland, and Portugal.
In 2020, the group opted to deploy Reflex WMS to manage its warehouses as part of a broader transformation plan covering its information system, business processes, and supply chain. Hardis Group’s application was chosen following a competitive tender process on account of its ability to keep pace with the group’s evolving requirements in the coming years. Groupement Les Mousquetaires is seeking to achieve gains all along the logistics chain, with a particular focus on operational performance (improving planning and team productivity via the Labour Management System module, standardizing processes, and managing activity in real time with Reflex Dashboard). Likewise, having a standardized, future-proof application will support the group’s information system improvement goals.
The migration to Reflex WMS will take place over the course of several years. Eventually, the application will be used by thousands of operatives all along the group’s logistics chain.
