As a key distributor to some of the largest office supply businesses in the world, for Sourcingpartner operations during the back-to-school season must be flawless. But as it added new product lines and international customers, it had outgrown the Microsoft NAV system managing its inventory and logistics. It needed new systems installed in time for the busiest part of the year—just a few months away.
“Everything went much smoother than our Microsoft implementation. I’ve had nothing but good comments from everyone involved and I’m so glad we switched.” Sourcingpartner
With the SuiteSuccess methodology, Sourcingpartner went live with NetSuite on time and under budget in 95 days in July 2016, implementing mobile inventory and logistics management for 32,000 parts in a 75,000-square-foot warehouse. Sourcingpartner chose NetSuite over Epicor for its implementation speed, ease of use and customisation capabilities.
Executives can now easily monitor automated, mobile inventory management practices on prebuilt dashboards, made available from day one of go-live, to reduce errors and streamline processes. Customers access real-time order and account information through a secure, self-service portal.
With solid back-end processes, Sourcingpartner is poised to expand customer-facing innovations, with plans to implement B2B ecommerce with SuiteCommerce. NetSuite’s scalability empowers its growth aspirations as Sourcingpartner looks to acquire another company within the next year, and continue to accelerate growth at 45 percent.
