The client is a leading American pharmaceutical chain dealing in Omega 3 supplements. The pharmaceutical company’s orders range from single-use home-based consumption to bulk supplies.
The pharmaceutical company retails the supplements from more than 30 stores with order volumes increasing at an exponential rate.
These operations are time-consuming and labour-intensive. The verification of online orders from the website and checking of inventory stocks before order placement, delivery and payments schedules, add up to 30% of human efforts, taking more time and resource utilization.
AUTOMATING THE NON-VALUE ADDING PROCESS
The client approached GerminIT for a holistic solution. GerminIT’s SageX3 team identified order processing and inventory verification as a non-value adding process steps which caused cost escalations.
GerminIT’s SageX3 consultants suggested leveraging technology to make existing processes more efficient. The client was suggested automating its order receiving process by integrating its website with the Sage X3 system.
The customized system created a line item automatically in the SageX3 system for each order. Post the customisation solution was implemented, the operations team handled each order with real-time inventory verification and payment processes.
CUSTOMISING THE SOLUTION
GerminIT offered website integration with Sage X3 system thus helping the client to-
- Focus more on production and inventory planning rather than spending time on manual order fulfilment.
- Analyse real-time data for orders, projections and pipelines thereby helping the client with accurate future decisions on budgets and revenues.
- Greater flexibility to introduce a reward system based on bulk orders and recurring customers which was implemented within X3. This helped customers to avail instant rewards which led to better customer relationship management.
- Improved customer relations which led to substantial growth in the sales numbers
