London, December 18, 2012: Tata Consultancy Services, a IT services, consulting and business solutions firm, released it had won the prestigious “Supply Chain Project of the Year” at the Hermes Retail Weekly UK Supply Chain Awards 2012. TCS won the award along with The Co-operative Group for implementing Store Merchandise and Replenishment System (SMART), a major transformation program for The Co-operative Group’s food business, a key player in the UK grocery sector.

The Co-operative Group chose to partner with TCS to develop and deliver the SMART initiative, which has affected the Co-operative Group’s food business positively. This ambitious project introduced new systems to enable effective stock forecasting and replenishment and range control at all The Co-operative Group’s food stores. The initiative also delivered a significant improvement in stock availability.

Mark Hale, CIO & Supply Chain Director, The Co-operative Food, said, “Implementing SMART has helped us scientifically map and implement an effective supply chain that dictates greater process compliance and at the same time improved our cross functional collaboration between departments. The SMART solution has helped our business to effectively manage our ‘on-shelf’ availability and replenishment processes that have allowed us to increase the time colleagues have in store to serve our customers.”

Shankar Narayanan, Head, TCS UK & Ireland, said, “Our constant innovations in improving our clients’ supply chain management solutions have paid dividends by enabling them to make appropriate business decisions and at the same time achieve enhanced operational efficiencies.
Winning this prestigious award is a testimony to our commitment to The Co-operative Group and our ability to deliver the best-in-class solutions to the global retail industry.”
