GS1net Implementation Presented by Lawrence Diamond E-commerce Manager Energizer Australia
More Customer Service people were employed to fix orders. Order dates were missed. Wrong deliveries – wrong product –wrong pack size. Heightened tensions between trading partners. Claims, claims and more claims. Resources wasted in all the above. We did not know how good our data was - or not !!!
Forced to verify data in back office systems – How bad was that !!! – six months to clean up First GS1net customer – painful to get on board –the amount of work to get it right !!! Live with first GS1net customer – all subsequent customers – a breeze. GS1net ready with Officeworks. 20 Minutes Data align with customer - a must (now we are speaking the same language)
Energizer uses fully automated systems – good orders produce a pick in remote warehouse – 3 mins from order receipt – faster order to pick. Reduced resources dealing with claims, less Customer Service fixing orders. Warehouse has longer lead time to pick and deliver – no last minute panics. Officeworks love us even more !!!
We thought our data was so good – it was not. We thought that Officeworks had the same data as us- they did not. Data alignment through GS1net is a must. Publish once share with all. Forces internal processes to ensure clean – correct data. Once the pain has gone more gain.
