Stricker's Journey: Streamlining Supplier Rates with Intelligent Automation

Use Case Stricker Logo


In the fast-paced realm of retail and product management, optimising processes is paramount to staying competitive. Stricker, in gift and merchandising, faced a common challenge: managing a surge of emails from suppliers, each containing crucial pricing information. This article delves into how ABP Consultancy helped Stricker revolutionise its operations through automation, specifically focusing on their use case involving Intelligent Automation.



Stricker grappled with the daunting task of sifting through a high volume of supplier emails, each presenting varying prices. Manually compiling this data into a usable format was not only time-consuming but also prone to errors. The process demanded meticulous attention, consuming an average of 5 minutes per email item.



The cumulative effect of this manual labour was significant. Even during non-peak periods, Stricker dealt with over 50 emails daily, monopolising valuable employee time. The strain on resources hindered productivity and restricted the team's capacity to engage in more strategic endeavours.



Recognising the need for efficiency, ABP Consultancy proposed a solution centred around Intelligent Automation[and Communication Mining. This automation platform proved instrumental in automating the compilation of supplier rates and product costs. The solution seamlessly extracted pertinent data from emails and consolidated it into a centralised repository, eliminating the need for manual intervention.



The implementation of RPA heralded a transformative change for Stricker. By drastically reducing the time required for data compilation, the company witnessed a tangible increase in operational efficiency. With additional benefits of improved data accuracy and classification of emails, what once took 5 minutes per email item was now accomplished in a mere 2 minutes. This newfound agility empowered Stricker's team to redirect their focus towards core business activities, fostering innovation and growth.



Stricker's success story underscores the transformative power of automation in streamlining operations and driving business outcomes. Through strategic collaboration with ABP Consultancy and the adoption of robotic process automation (RPA), Stricker not only overcame operational bottlenecks but also unlocked new avenues for growth.
