Waldo’s Dollar Mart Unifies Business Processes with Oracle’s Finance and Retail Cloud Solutions

Mexican retailer Waldo’s Dollar Mart is using Oracle Cloud finance and merchandising applications to manage its complex, multi-format business model while continuing to offer customers more choices in products and buying channels.

Waldo’s operates more than 800 grocery and clothing stores throughout Mexico, with many of its clothing options coming from overseas.

By continuing to modernize its operations with Oracle Cloud, Waldo’s can now improve financial forecasting and make more informed inventory decisions to ensure shoppers have a fresh assortment of items at great prices while supporting its goal of opening approximately 70 new stores a year, according to the companies.

“Having the right tools in place was essential in supporting our diverse retail concepts and ability to meet our aggressive growth strategy,” said Laura Andrade Ortega, chief information officer, Waldo’s Dollar Mart. “Based on our long history, moving to the cloud with Oracle was the natural choice given the breadth of its portfolio and expertise in retail. Today, we have a fast pace of stores openings on a weekly basis and plan to increase these numbers each month. Oracle Cloud solutions help us to better align data and business processes and give our teams the ability to focus on the most impactful needs of our business while continuing to increase our bottom line and meet customer expectations.”

Waldo’s went live with Oracle Fusion Cloud Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) in 2020, followed by Oracle Retail Merchandising Cloud Service, Oracle Retail Allocation Cloud Service, Oracle Retail Invoice Matching Cloud Service, Oracle Retail Pricing Cloud Service, and Oracle Warehouse Management—part of Oracle Fusion Cloud Supply Chain & Manufacturing (SCM)—with no disruption to the business. The retailer is also implementing Oracle Transportation Management in Oracle Cloud SCM.

By moving to Oracle Cloud, Waldo’s consolidated and rationalized more than 62 legacy applications and streamlined its distinct business processes across its grocery and clothing operations.

By partnering with the Oracle Retail Customer Value team, the retailer continues to improve inventory management, planning, and budgeting processes, equipping its merchandising team with the ability to make better purchasing decisions for customers.

Waldo’s now has a consistent user experience and can better manage the legal, regulatory, and corporate complexities of cross-border transactions. They also have the foundation to quickly open new stores to serve the needs of its customers both in physical locations and online.
