An employee used to spend about a day and a half updating Excel spreadsheets that had 60 items, and it was too cumbersome to use Excel. We were like firefighters, not supply chain managers. What took him a day and a half to does, now takes only seconds to update with Streamline. He can spend the rest of the time to analyze the Streamline data. The other divisions use Streamline and do not know how they managed without it. Whalen Furniture inventory had dropped by 36% with Streamline. The company has been able to eliminate two auxiliary buildings rented month-to-month. That has saved about $56,000/month in excessive stock costs for us.
Streamline has been very helpful in reducing the time and effort required to calculate our purchasing requirements and placing our purchase orders. Previously we used complex spreadsheets which were quite cumbersome but Streamline has made the process at least 100% faster. After using it for more than 1 year, it has also resulted in a 5-10% reduction in stockholding with minimal impact on fill rate. Support from the team is excellent and timely, and there is continual work on the product with features and updates.
Streamline has made a major difference in our forecasting and manufacturing planning. The ease of use, flexibility, and accuracy has far exceeded our expectations. Streamline has helped take our forecasting accuracy from average to world-class; which has a very positive bottom line impact. In addition, to Streamline being a great tool for us, the customer service we receive is second to none: it’s impressive. The time invested in learning our business, our model, and our people has been greatly appreciated and shows in the results.
