Since its launch in late 2000, SmartBargains has steadily attracted a legion of loyal bargain hunters. During the period of rapid growth, two key objectives emerged for the SmartBargains merchandising and planning teams: ƒ

  • Create a more efficient means of collecting, reporting and analyzing critical business information ƒ
  • Greatly streamline the purchase order process

ƒ

The Envisa Solution

To meet these challenges and sustain the company’s earlier success, SmartBargains teamed with Envisa to design, architect and implement two new systems to dramatically improve the company’s business intelligence capabilities and to simplify the handling of purchase orders.

The Results

Reduced Time to Create Purchase Orders

By dramatically reducing the time required to create a purchase order, the Envisa solution allowed buyers to focus more on critical research activities and made the buying process more efficient.

Delivered Real-Time Market and Trend Data

With the custom merchandise management application, planners can now approve purchase orders in real-time and can access essential information about market trends, product demand, and profitability to enhance forecasts.

Improved Operational Efficiencies

With the Envisa solution, purchasing is now seamlessly integrated with both the financial package and online content management system reducing errors and greatly improving operational efficiencies.
