The company was handling its day to day operations manually hence, the two phrases that effectively defined the supply chain features of Crossline were: complex and time-constrained.
Due to the lack of data integration, teams from different departments ended up duplicating information in the system for their daily jobs. Standard Operating Procedures were rarely followed due to unconnected data and a persistent time stress.
Also, because of the poor visibility across the channels of the company and the lack of a single source of truth across, teams led to supply chain errors and, in some circumstances, excessive payments to vendors.
Previously, each business unit had its own methodology, making it difficult to reconcile data in the back office. WFX has provided everyone with a common language and structure that is versatile enough to suit all of our buyer needs, and our back-office operations are running more smoothly than ever.Martin Buffet Key Account Manager, Crossline
