Steinhoff’s CBX Cloud Implementation Project Named to Supply & Demand Chain Executive’s SDCE 100 Top Supply Chain Projects for 2017
HONG KONG, CHINA / PARIS, FRANCE (June 22, 2017) – Supply & Demand Chain Executive, the executive’s user manual for successful supply and demand chain transformation, has selected CBX Software as a recipient of an SDCE 100 Award for 2017.
CBX Software has been nominated for its Steinhoff implementation project. Steinhoff is the second largest furniture and household goods retailer in Europe. Its retail brands include Conforama and POCO in France, POCO in Germany, Bensons for Beds and Harveys in UK, Freedom in Australia and Mattress Firm in US. Steinhoff chose the CBX Total Sourcing Management platform to streamline the group’s global sourcing, order and supply chain operations.
CBX has become a common service within Steinhoff to facilitate numerous supply chain activities between the company brands, SISL (Steinhoff International Sourcing and Logistics division) and suppliers, supporting both the trading and direct sourcing supply chains. From implementation to the launch of the CBX platform, Steinhoff realized a number of key benefits including:
- Time savings through greater efficiency
- Automation of workflow and sourcing processes
- Labor cost savings through reduction in manual tasks
- Real time visibility into entire sourcing and production workflow
- Improved collaboration internally and with suppliers and customers
“We entered into a collaborative partnership with Steinhoff to further help the retailer achieve its supply chain goals to compress cycle time, improve efficiency and reduce costs,” said Michael Hung, CEO at CBX Software, “through concerted team efforts, the CBX Solution is now live and supports Steinhoff’s central and international sourcing and logistics processes including referencing new suppliers and products, managing order, quality, shipment and payment information.”
Michael added, “We are deeply honored to be included by Supply & Demand Chain Executive as one of the SDCE 100 Top Supply Chain Projects for 2017 and would like to thank the organizing committee for the recognition.”
“We chose CBX based on their broad experience and reputation for successfully implementing and managing complex end-to-end global sourcing and supply chain projects for a number of leading European and American retailers,” said Renaat Sohl, Project Leader, Steinhoff International Sourcing and Logistics.
The SDCE 100 is an annual list of 100 great supply chain projects. These projects can serve as a map for supply chain executives who are looking for new opportunities to drive improvement in their own operations.
“Our goal with 2017’s Top 100 is to shine the spotlight on successful and innovative transformation projects that deliver bottom-line value to small, medium and large enterprises across the supply chain,” says Ronnie Garrett, editor of Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “The selected projects can serve as a roadmap for supply chain executives looking for new opportunities to drive improvement in their own operations. We congratulate all of our winners for a job well done!”
