The Challenge

  • Supply chain unpredictability  
  • Inventory challenges
  • Limitations in their previous system
  • Limited customer support

The result

  • Healthy cash flow and cost efficiency
  • Better overview of supply chain changes
  • Overstock visibility
  • Better service levels

‘The system is user-friendly and is quick to learn for newcomers to the company. In addition it makes it easier for us to have a better overview on how changes in demand or further up in the supply chain affects our stock levels.’

-   Fredrik Gilsvik, Senior Supply Chain Analyst.

AGR proved invaluable for Granberg when the pandemic hit in 2020.  By using AGR's baseline plan, they could anticipate surges in demand for Medical Device products and secure essential items at reasonable prices before the market experienced significant inflation. AGR's continuous support enabled Granberg to manage stock risks effectively by implementing necessary buffers amid supply chain disruptions.

AGR's planning tools played a significant role in bolstering the company's bottom line. A better understanding of supply chain changes and their effects on output empowered Granberg. The data-driven insights within the AGR system enabled Granberg to quickly detect deviations in sales, leading to enhanced service levels through strategic adjustments in purchasing patterns.

Granberg wholeheartedly recommends AGR to companies seeking better supply chain management. AGR simplifies the process of gaining comprehensive oversight and control of the entire supply chain.
