  • Business Opportunity

    The benefits of customer automation are well understood:
    • Improved customer experience
    • Better working capital management
    • Faster receipt of demand signals
    • Increased market share and revenue
    • Lower cost to serve

  • Business Challenge

    The question is how to achieve these benefits without changing how your customer currently does business. Or requiring your customer to engage in an IT project.

    Many manufacturers are stuck with a small number of high volume customer’s automated and a long-tail of manual orders. Some customers have complex processes related to managing inventories in tanks or rail cars that are not supported by the ERP. Other just want to send in their orders via mail.

    Efforts to drive small and medium size customers to “Amazon-like” portals tend not to be successful. While customer’s will log on portals for documentation like test results and order status, they tend not to want to place orders for raw materials and packaging via a portal

    Another issue is how to provide a consistent experience for customers
    globally when you have different transport providers and 3PLs each with their own shipment visibility solution.
