Founded in 2002 and headquartered in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Violeta has become one of the region’s leading producers of premium hygiene products. Due to the company’s rapid growth, Violeta now maintains three factories and 15 branch offices across the region. Violeta is the exclusive representative of world-famous brands such as Ferrero, Barilla, Evian, Trenton, and Paladin.
Until recently, Violeta ran its business on Navision software, spreadsheets, and data from a business intelligence application. Seeking to reduce manual effort while generating more accurate sales and production plans, Violeta chose to implement Demand Solutions Demand Planning, Requirements Planning and Manufacturing Optimization. Demand Management’s position as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant influenced Violeta’s decision.
“One of our company’s policies is to work with the best solution providers,” said Ante Miloš, Manager, Violeta d.o.o. “During our market research and our tests with multiple solutions, we concluded that Demand Solutions can provide us not only with a good solution, but also the added value of their experience and knowledge in the manufacturing industry.”
Violeta expects to go live in four to six months. Once the company has moved its business onto Demand Solutions, it hopes to enhance its sales and production planning in ways that help optimize its stock levels.
“Violeta is a market leader in hygiene products throughout the Balkan Peninsula,” said Bill Harrison, president of Demand Management. “We are delighted that they have chosen Demand Solutions and are confident that our solution will help them produce more accurate plans through agile planning. As Violeta continues to put the consumer first, Demand Solutions will be there to help them respond quickly to an ever-changing marketplace.”
