Herlitz IM Announces E3 Migration Kits

BOSTON, Mass. (August 4, 2015)Herlitz Inventory Management, leading innovator in scientific demand forecasting, replenishment and optimization, is pleased to announce an aggressive initiative to help retailers and wholesalers transition from their legacy E3TRIM and E3SLIM forecasting and replenishment solutions to HIMPACT, Herlitz IM’s advanced supply chain solution.

In the second half of 2014, competitor JDA Software Group, Inc., relocated its customer and product support for Advanced Warehouse Replenishment (AWR) and Advanced Store Replenishment (ASR) to their Asian support center. Since then, companies have approached Herlitz IM with the need to improve customer service and replace their legacy-based 1990’s inventory management systems.

In response, Herlitz IM has developed the E3 Migration Kit, a simple proven program that allows a quick conversion from older legacy systems to their latest solution, HIMPACT. Current E3/AWR/ASR customers can use existing interfaces, which allow for a quick conversion in days, not months. The migration kit includes a detailed transition plan and ongoing consultation with Herlitz IM conversion experts.

“Our team has remarkable experience in onboarding new customers,” President and CEO of Herlitz IM Carl Herlitz said. “This makes our simple but sophisticated functionality easily accessible for all users. Our U.S. based customer support and focused training offer a huge advantage for companies seeking a true partner who understands their business. We expect many more E3 users to upgrade.”

Training for experienced buyers is minimal and can take less than a week for users to become fluent in the software. HIMPACT features new advanced functionality that delivers better results. Innovations such as daily demand forecasting, profit optimization at the store shelf and promotional filtering at a store level are available to customers in both the retail and wholesale sectors. “There is no reason to stay with clearly outmoded technology,” Herlitz said. “Our new migration kit provides users a clear path to economically and quickly migrate from their outmoded systems and get immediate results.”

In addition to the E3 Migration Kits, Herlitz IM has developed a conversion kit for INFOREM users, along with establishing multiple interfaces for JD Edwards, Entrée, VIP (versions 8, 10 and 11), Bev-Pak, Liquor POS and Target Data Systems.
