Tägerwilen (euro adhoc) - Tägerwilen, January 22, 2009 SAF AG, which is listed in the Prime Standard of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange (ISIN CH0024848738), will present its software solutions for automated retail replenishment planning from February 10-12, 2009 at the EuroCIS trade fair in Düsseldorf (Booth C36, Hall 14). SAF will demonstrate the new functions of Major Release 5.0.0 for its SAF SuperStore and SAF SuperWarehouse products.

The expanded functions model, among others, the influence of promotions on the sales of other items (cannibalization effect) and price developments at suppliers (investment buying). The Swiss company combines automated replenishment and forecasting technology with user-friendly graphical user interfaces in its SAF RetailSuite Store and SAF RetailSuite Warehouse core products. Thanks to precise sales forecasts, the right products are available at all times in the right quantities at the right places in the stores and warehouses. That way, retailers can increase product availability while simultaneously reducing inventory levels.

"The automated replenishment process supported by our software improves product availability and optimizes inventory levels," explains Dr. Andreas von Beringe, CEO at SAF AG. "That reduces warehousing costs on the one hand, while increasing sales on the other hand, because customers no longer stand in front of empty shelves. Retailers not only maximize their profits but also gain a competitive advantage and satisfied customers." SAF solutions are used by many companies including dm-drogerie markt, Metro, Deutsche Woolworth, Rossmann in Poland and the Polish natura Drogeria drug store chain.

EuroCIS Presentation - February 12, 12:00 noon - "Case Study - Success Factors in Implementing Automated Replenishment and Forecasting Software"

Andrzej Uryga, Commercial Project Director of natura Drogeria, and Jürgen Conrads, SAF Vice President Sales, will report at the EuroCIS about the challenges and success factors in converting from manual to automated replenishment.
