ATLANTA — Dollar Tree Inc. will partner with RELEX Solutions in an effort to improve demand forecasting and replenishment processes across both its Dollar Tree and Family Dollar chains. The RELEX solution will be implemented across all of the retailer’s 15,800 stores and 26 distribution centers in North America to improve collaboration between stores and central planning teams.

“The decision to partner with RELEX is a continuation of our journey to utilize data, analytics and automation to drive accuracy, efficiency, and effectiveness throughout our supply chain, resulting in better on-shelf availability and an improved shopping experience for customers,” Dollar Tree executive vice president Alasdair James said.

“RELEX has proven to be more configurable than other solutions in its field, allowing our planners to have full visibility into, and control of, our supply chain,” added Dollar Tree chief information officer Andy Paisley. “It also empowers us to innovate, try new ideas, and evolve our use of the solution over time to continuously meet changing business needs.”

RELEX will help Dollar Tree and Family Dollar grow their businesses while providing high service levels and quality products to their customers at affordable prices, Frank Lord, the company’s chief revenue officer, said. “RELEX has deep experience with the challenges specific to price-point retailers, and we look forward to sharing our expertise as we help them improve in-store availability while lowering inventory balances across their supply chain.”
