Today Oracle announced Saudi Arabian pharmacies’ retailer Nahdi Medical Company deployed Oracle Retail Advanced Science Engine Cloud Service, Oracle Retail Merchandising Solutions, and Oracle Retail Category Management. Nahdi is considered the largest pharmacies’ chain in Middle East and North Africa. Its mission is to exceed the expectations of 85 million guests across 125 cities by providing personalized high-quality health, wellness and beauty products and services through its expertise and extended reach.
Nahdi manages a huge and growing assortment of SKUs across 170 categories throughout its stores. The volume of data forced Nahdi to adopt a scalable and smart planning solution. With the deployment of Oracle Retail, Nahdi gains the ability to segment customers, cluster stores and understand the effects of demand transference without having to recruit a full team of scientists with transaction-level data experience. Powerful scientific insights are delivered in a digestible format for the business user through personal-based dashboards. Prior to selecting Oracle, Nahdi planners spent time navigating a manual process using Excel spreadsheets and in-house databases. Today Nahdi is able to optimize the planning team’s productivity with standardized and automated planning processes.
“The implementation of Oracle Retail increased the accuracy of planning and forecasting the merchandising figures. We are able to plan and execute better assortment of products across our stores to improve our guests’ satisfaction,” said Dr. Khalid Tadlaoui, Vice President of Information Technology, Nahdi Medical Company.
“The proliferation of data can be overwhelming, and it becomes increasingly important for retailers like Nahdi Medical Company to leverage and invest in solutions that understand how to drive insight through embedded science, business intelligence and analytics into solutions and processes,” said Ray Carlin, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Oracle Retail. “Oracle Retail is incredibly proud to provide this competitive advantage as cloud services, accelerating speed to market and driving productivity.”
Oracle PartnerNetwork Gold Level Partner Logic Information Systems accelerated a smooth cloud implementation and guided the customer through business process change. Logic developed a Retail Data Extractor to extract data correctly and cleanly from the installation of Oracle Retail Merchandising Systems for the cloud implementation. Logic delivered training programs to empower the business and technical teams.
“It is a privilege to work with a retailer like Nahdi who is using science to leverage the performance and availability of each individual product to satisfy their guests and who also places an importance that their employees have access to critical planning information without wasted time sifting through Excel and manual processes,” said Amber Naqvi, President, Logic Information Systems.
