When Madden had integrated to Länna Sport and started offering their platform to Länna’s suppliers, CCM Hockey was quick to try out the service. Länna Sport is one of CCM’s most important wholesale accounts in Sweden, and getting close to real-time statistics on how sales and inventory are performing through Madden is a game changer.
“Madden’s platform solves a classic problem within wholesale - that we rarely know how our wholesale accounts are performing once the goods have been delivered to the retailer. Through Madden we get the same statistics as if we would have sold to the end customer ourselves, which is really helpful in understanding current trends and identifying how our products are performing at different retailers”, says Richard Johansson, Key Account Manager CCM Hockey.
Starting with Länna Sport, the team at CCM is now eager to use Madden for additional wholesale accounts. Madden is already integrated to the next retailer at CCMs request - a specialized hockey store/e-commerce - and more retailers are planned to be onboarded shortly. Madden’s solution has obvious benefits for the retailers as well: their suppliers can take ownership in suggesting re-orders and optimize inventory - leading to fewer situations where popular products are out-of-stock.
“We started identifying products that could be replenished from day one when using Madden. This is truly a win-win situation for us as a supplier and for the retailers who don’t miss out on sales, and for the end consumer who isn’t met with stock-outs”, says Richard Johansson, Key Account Manager CCM Hockey.
