Fail and Fix SAP Orders Faster. Ill-formed SAP orders exist.  Always have.  Always will.  Whether they come in via EDI, Fax, email or even eCommerce Websites like ours, they will never be 100% well-formed.  People, and computers, make mistakes.  What’s the secret to winning […]

Well you should be.

After 3 seconds of waiting you’re going to lose 57% of your b2b ecommerce users.  If that’s not enough to fuel your performance anxieties, I don’t know what is.

It is true that we have First Degree and Fourth Degree Taekwondo Black Belts on staff at Corevist (yours truly and Master Ray Mannion respectively).  It is also true that Black Belts have been known to hit people and break boards under crazy conditions.  But I assure you that we’re not a violent company.  However, as part of our Agile evolution, last week we did decide that we are going to HIT each other as part of our daily standup routine.

Dear b2b2dot0,

I don’t want to beat around the bush.  I simply can’t live with you anymore.  It’s nothing that you did, or didn’t do, that got us here.  It’s me.  I’ve changed.

I just came across this article over at practicalcommerce.com entitled “12 Key Job Roles for B-to-B eCommerce Success”.  What amazed me most was that we have several clients who have achieved unquestionable success with their B2B eCommerce initiatives with only one of those roles on staff.  What’s even more fascinating is that they aren’t even dedicated full time to working on their SAP Integrated B2B eCommerce website.

Which role do they have and how can that be?  Read on.

Last week I wrote about EDI transactions falling well short of their vision of transferring “…structured data, by agreed message standards, from one computer system to another without human intervention” (sic). According to this Supply Chain Insights survey, fully two thirds of all EDI transactions sent to Suppliers have to be fixed by human beings.  That, in turn, delays the fulfillment of those orders by a factor of two! Today I’d like to discuss how an SAP Integrated B2B eCommerce website can actually improve the hands-free throughput of those EDI sales order transactions, improve your order fulfillment performance and ultimately increase your customer satisfaction ratings.

Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) is the “The Workhorse of the Value Chain” according to a recently published Supply Chain Insights report.  In late 2013, they surveyed 79 Manufacturers/Distributors/Retailers, each generating over $250M in annual revenue, and inquired about their use of EDI.  Here are some of the survey’s highlights:

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of kicking off an SAP Integrated B2B eCommerce project for our newest client.  (They’re staying anonymous for now since they don’t want to tip off their competitors).  This isn’t going to be one of our simpler projects for several reasons, not the least of which is that they are in a regulated industry and we’ll have to validate our work (yet again) against FDA 21 CFR Part 11.  Yet I’m really confident that this project will be one of our best.  Why?  Because they’ve been thinking and planning for this project for the better part of a year.

Want Your 21 CFR Part 11 SAP Integrated B2B eCommerce Website Project to Succeed?

A few weeks ago we launched yet another successful SAP Integrated B2B eCommerce website project.  This project was uniquely challenging in that before we could go into production, the system had to be validated to adhere to the US Federal Drug Administration’s (FDA) 21 CFR Part 11 Regulations for electronic records and signatures.  Culturally, FDA validation is about as far away from our Agile DNA as you can get, so we had a lot to learn and adjust to.
