Get Products Out The Door Faster
A leading European fast-fashion company faced issues when trying to scale up their materials sourcing and approvals process for new designs. With global sourcing and designers located in different parts of the continent, manual assignment & tracking was not just unscalable, it was turning out to be extraordinarily expensive.
Generation's Doc Routing tool ran on top of their existing process (Excel files, proprietary design templates and JPG & GIFs), all while providing the business resource analyst visibility on where each process was. Visibility was provided on all previous comments to all approvers down the line.
An immediate 3x improvement in document processes that a resource analyst could handle at any one time. Time per desk reduced due to easy reference data presentations, as well as superior real-time visibility (upwards & sideways) of where documents were "stuck" in their process
Vendor Selection Issues At Global Scale
For this Fortune 50 oil & gas company with global ops, IT vendor selection was a manual excel-catalogued operation with minimal searchability and required resource analysts to constantly course correct on who the had to sign off at various stages.
Generation's Doc Routing tool was white-labeled and then integrated by the client's IT group, into their existing portal.
With approvals & notes digitally-enabled for cataloguing, this company runs searches every time they look to select a new vendor, enabling global sharing of experiences & learnings across the enterprise.
Reducing Time to Send Out Marketing Materials
At this top-3 specialty materials manufacturing company, preparation of submittal sheets was crucial to closing larger sales, but required participation from various groups in the org. The problem was exacerbated by the fact that inputs from various groups was largely asynchronous, but approver comments may rely on other comments present.
Generation's Doc Routing tool + custom dashboard allowed various contributors to enter information into the spec sheet at various points in time, to see what other contributors had entered, as well as elect to receive notifications when specific sections were filled out.
Increased interactive engagement during remote work situations. The automatic conditional alerting reduced the need for follow up calls by over 50% in the first 30 day reference period.
