What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
We are trying to solve problems in the store operations, logistics and supply chain space. Specifically we are using HCP to mobilise store employees with operations such as stock take and goods receipt. We are also seeking to engage partners better with partner portals for registration and purchase orders. The benefits are tremendous as we improve the productivity of front line staff and improve data quality. These initiatives are helping move to a real time business.
