For more than 10 years, NMK Textile Mills has manufactured bed linens for major retailers in the United States and Canada. As e-commerce exploded, the company’s co-founder saw an opportunity to grow the business. So, in addition to manufacturing bed linens wholesale for retail customers, they reworked its complete supply chain to manufacture products for California Design Den, which became an e-commerce retailer now selling its products directly to consumers online.
A couple of years ago, California Design Den partnered with Pluto7, a technology solutions provider leveraging Google Cloud Platform machine learning and artificial intelligence, to intelligently predict demand and balances it with supply.
With guidance from Pluto7, California Design Den began migrating its database to Google Cloud Platform. Using various GCP products Pluto7 helps reduce inventory carryovers by more than 50%, in addition to improving the accuracy of demand planning quarter over quarter, and gaining granular insights into how individual SKUs are performing.
The company’s data is siloed across geographies in various systems due to which decision-making was a time-taking process. Due to the extended data across regions inventory was managed manually using spreadsheets which led to excess and shortage of inventory. The main objective of this project was to create a solution that would lead CDD to compete with larger retailers and make quicker decisions. Another objective is to maintain enough inventory to meet customer demand in a timely, efficient way.
The customer is onboarded on Google Cloud Platform which will further help the customer in making faster decisions and enhance customer satisfaction.
