Leading packaging solutions company transforms supply chain management

A $5.6-billion producer of packaging, specialty papers, consumer and office products needed to enhance innovation and collaboration across the company’s packaging value chain to create a more responsive, flexible organization to benefit customers throughout the world. We developed a Paper Board Online E-Commerce web application and CRM e-commerce portal and brought all supply-chain operations and mill operations onto a single, integrated platform.

The web application improved order management and provided a real-time view of inventory to the client’s customers and a portal-enabled view of consignment stock processes. This resulted in reduced order processing and approval lead time, increases in open stock availability through automated inventory replenishments and reduced inventory obsolescence.

Leading utilities company in the UK enhances customer experience

A £ 29 billion supplier of electricity and gas to businesses and consumers in the UK needed to enhance customer experience through improved product and service offerings and maintain sustainable relationships with profitable customers. We developed an online solution for improving customer connections, reducing cost and introducing an additional customer service channel through CTI and IVR telephony systems for better customer experience.

This transformation resulted in reduced number of cancellations and rebilling, increase in lead generation, lower call handling time, improved transparency and flexibility of business to the client’s customers and significant cost savings through retiring legacy systems.

U.S.‑ based sports retailer improves sales and margins

A U.S.‑based sports retailer was challenged with inconsistent selling process and a lack of real‑time data resulting in inaccurate order specifications and lengthy order cycle times. It needed to improve in‑store shopping processes to enhance the customer experience. We designed smart business solutions for streamlining the end‑to‑end process by leveraging SAP’s latest technology based on HANA and HTML 5.0.

The solutions provided unified and streamlined data across multiple channels. Results included 100% accuracy in order placements, significant cost savings due to automated three-way invoice matching, increase in shipping charges, zero order errors, increased cross sells and upsells and enhanced customer experience.

A leading pharmacy company boosts rewards program

A leading pharmacy and healthcare product retailer in the UK wanted to provide digitized offers and automatic rewards for its loyal customers. Cognizant developed a digital solution for customer loyalty management, which allowed for targeted offers and reward updates on shoppers’ mobile phones.

Cognizant conducted a pilot rollout for two select stores successfully, followed by rollout to 550 stores and to all consumers. Results included real-time and all-time availability of offers via web account, real-time visibility of digital offer points awarded, on-the-fly updates on reward points and enhanced customer loyalty.
