Walker Edison is a furniture wholesale company with headquarters in Salt Lake City, Utah. They specialize in providing innovative home furnishing to major and minor eCommerce websites such as Amazon, Walmart, Home Depot, and many more. Since their creation in 2006, they have designed and distributed sleek products from living room couches to patio furniture. They are known for their ability to provide quality products at an affordable rate. Josh Rocha works on the operations team and is responsible for ensuring inventory levels are stable and accurate. In an eCommerce world, time is of the essence so it is vital to the success of the company that Josh accurately plans and forecasts demand. After weighing many options, Josh and his team chose Avercast to provide this crucial information.
Prior to Avercast, Walker Edison was using Excel sheets to plan and forecast demand. Josh and his team realized as they continued to grow, “you can’t just keep operating in Excel.” They worried, however, that switching to a third party software would give them less flexibility in customizing their forecasts. When they found Avercast, they saw the possibility of working with an excellent, customer focused software that would allow them, not only to keep the customizations they were used to, but develop even more.
