Canadian Tire Corporation has deployed the Vendor Management System from Soft Solutions, with ibs Referential Vendor Management becoming the latest module that Canadian Tire has licensed from the California-based Soft Solutions, to accomplish the full coverage of their Master Data Management (MDM).
The main benefits of this implementation are:
- Guarantee the purchasing system transparency.
- Optimize the daily cost management.
- Simplify the vendor contract management.
ibs Referential, part of the Soft Solutions’ Retail Suite, was selected by Canadian Tire for its business advantages, its unique foundation for providing a single version of the truth for their information management, and for its seamless integration with their external systems. The deployment was a success and resulted in optimizing operational efficiencies.
“Soft Solutions worked through extremely challenging conditions to deliver an incredible result. This is a major milestone to move a fundamental piece that will enable future capabilities for Canadian Tire.” declared Canadian Tire Merchandise EVP.
The ibs Retail Suite implementation for Canadian Tire started with the deployment of ibs Pricing and ibs Promotions, followed by the deployment of the full version of ibs Referential for retail organizations and product management (PIM, MDM). The project will continue during the first quarter of 2012 with the deployment of ibs DataSync to optimize electronic data exchange with their vendors.
Soft Solutions is proud to provide state-of-the-art retail solutions, offering Canadian Tire world-class solutions that integrate the industry’s “best practices”.
