Berggård Amundsen wanted to avoid a lot of manual surveillance of their integrations, external orders, and orders which didn’t make it through in time or those which had delayed response times. Stop or delays to orders was very resource-intensive for Berggård Amundsen and they needed to tackle these issues head-on. They also wanted to improve management of stock, volume, orders and delays.
Many of their customers shop through their web store, where Berggård Amundsen provide a fast delivery service, the company needed to have systems in place which could not only handle and fulfil orders at scale, but also handle stops or any errors that occurred.
In 2017, Berggård Amundsen invested in Vince Butler (VBU) and saw immediate results. Their integrations between Infor M3 (M3) and Astro significantly increased uptime and enabled them to resolve issues much faster. When stops occur, they now receive automated notifications via email or SMS with specific information that the IT department can use to directly fix the problem without manually having to search for the root cause. With VBU, Berggård Amundsen has a real-time monitor which overlooks orders, packing, volume, and stock. This allowed them to save time and train their resources and focus on different areas of the company.
With VBU, they can also see if something is wrong with their web store for example, if customers are unable to put items into their baskets. VBU provides a live feed of their website that allows them to track orders – and everything in between – from start to finish. Berggård Amundsen can now also see which orders have been sent, packed, and where they are in the process. With VBU they can compare historical data against orders and transaction volumes, to notice rare deviation.
Thanks to Vince Butler dashboards, Berggård Amundsen can now get an accurate, real-time picture of their situation has greatly increased their operational stability and control. VBU also makes it easy to get a visual understanding of the numbers and dimensions without having to manually compile this information.
