Energizer Australia used the GS1-certified Enterprise master data solution from Bizcaps Software
to synchronise its product information with Officeworks through GS1net, becoming the first supplier to go GS1net live with Officeworks.
GS1net allows suppliers to provide product and pricing data to multiple suppliers through a single source. Importantly for Energizer, GS1net enhances EDI in their supply chain by ensuring data integrity.
Bizcaps Enterprise can collect product and pricing information from a supplier’s existing systems, validating and publishing the information to their trading partners in the format required.
Bizcaps had previously assisted Energizer in publishing its product and pricing information to Coles and Metcash, ultimately improving order accuracy and dramatically reducing claims and errors for both organisations. Bizcaps was the first middleware software to be certified for GS1net. Following the availability of GS1net guidelines for office products, Bizcaps encouraged its office products clients to adopt the standards with Energizer moving quickly.
Richard Jones, GS1 Australia’s General Manager - Industry Engagement explains that the potential efficiencies are enormous, with trading partners who are able to exchange transactions directly between their systems in a fully-automated way without the need for any human intervention, achieving tremendous efficiencies especially in high-volume environments.
Energizer is now working to add more trading partners via data synchronization and EDI.
