Co-op Group automates onboarding
Grocery retailer Co-op Group has automated supplier on boarding for some of its suppliers
This new self-service functionality enables rapid onboarding, while also allowing suppliers to share real-time information on orders including the sending of Advanced Shipping Notifications (ASNs) to notify Co-op Group of pending deliveries.
With OpenText Trading Grid, customers can create adaptive supply chain infrastructures that pivot and flex as the market demands.
“Ease, speed, quality and choice are at the heart of our approach and OpenText Trading Grid has helped to streamline key supply chain processes, reducing administrative burden and improving our ability to more quickly bring new suppliers into our network,” said Paul Wilkins, Head of Source to Pay, at Co-op Group.
Digital supply chain solutions also bring expanded options for notification and messaging – such as Co-op Group’s new ASN functionality – that can improve visibility on order timing, status, and complication. Improved visibility helps companies react to disruptions and more effectively deploy resources to address gaps.
