Success Story - V33

Industry

THE COMPANY

For more than 60 years, V33 has specialised in manufacturing products for the protection of interior and exterior wood, as well as paints. The V33 Group has become known throughout Europe for its eponymous innovative product, the parquet flooring. It is now one of the leading brands in wood products, specialist and technical paints.

 

THE CHALLENGE

To respond to strong competition, V33 continues to apply an innovative approach to its manufacturing processes and frequently updates its range of products to follow the trends of the market. The group now offers a wide range of products, 13,000 product lines marketed and more than 18,000 product lines produced globally. The company has decided to modernise its supply chain to boost its sales.

With the support from FuturMaster, V33 has been able to optimise the shelf life of its products and control its stock levels in order to increase turnover and improve profitability.

 

 

THE SOLUTION

fpd132-sous-couche-bois-fer-v33-2l5The FuturMaster solution was first implemented by V33 in 1996. Since then, the group has continued to use the FuturMaster solutions and innovate its manufacturing processes, including in 2016, when it extended the scope of the applied solution to the GPA process that it shared with its clients.

Since 1996, the V33 Group has been implementing the FuturMaster solutions to manage demand and its stock levels. This solution suite was updated in 2014 to integrate sales and consumers (cash out) and, thus, increase its reliability and strengthen its relationship with key customers.

In 2013, in order to respond to the increase in production costs due to the unexpected success of a number of product lines, and to regain production capacity and increase its turnover, V33 invested in the planning solution of the FuturMaster production (Production Planning). The FuturMaster solution has been integrated into the V33 IT landscape and it now communicates with the teams on the ground by sending commands to the central system (ERP).
