Business Need Kmart Australia wanted to improve business efficiency, information exchange and data accuracy to boost their direct sourcing business and expand their operations across the region.

Solution With partner IBM, CBX implemented a hosted solution using a SaaS model to deliver a complete sourcing, order, quote and PLM system over the Cloud.

Result The new solution reduced lead times by up to three weeks, simplified work processes and enabled accurate and real time data analysis and availability.

  • CBX helped Kmart Australia dramatically increase the volume of direct sourcing and improve the quality of products without a corresponding increase in headcount or costs. This in turn supported the implementation of Kmart Australia’s low-cost strategy which is focused on delivering great quality products to Australian families at the lowest prices.
