Background & Objectives
We are a small but fast growing cosmetics business. We do not have an all encompassing logistics and supply chain process and we want to fix this.
We currently use two third party warehouses: one in Chester, UK and one in New Jersey, US (they both have their own warehousing system).
We also work with a number of EDI compliant accounts: ULTA.com (they use Ariba as network provider, at the moment we are using their portal to get orders and enter them manually in the US warehouse’s system), URBAN OUTFITTERS (they use Tradestone and we enter orders same as ULTA), NORDSTROM (I believe they use GXS and our US warehouse is already EDI integrated with them ), MARKS AND SPENCER (they use GXS and we download orders from the portal and send by email to our UK warehouse).
We want to hire someone that can undertake a 3 month integration process to leave us with a perfectly functioning warehousing system that "speaks" to our warehouses.
Integrate our systems and various warehouses so that we can track all orders ourselves, rather than needing to contact our third parties for updates.
We are looking for someone that integrated systems in a similar way, multiple times in the past.
