Metcash’s eBusiness Strategy comprises 2 key projects: eData and eTrade; which collectively seek to unlock greater efficiency in our supply chain processes, as well as positioning Metcash for future eCommerce initiatives with both our customers and consumers.

The focus of both projects will be on the Metcash Food and Grocery (formerly IGA and Campbells) and ALM divisions.

Metcash’s eBusiness strategy will provide the following benefits for suppliers:

  • Reduced administration costs for handling paper orders/UBFs
  • EDI ordering system ensures orders are not missed
  • Faster truck turnaround at DCs using ASN to manage inbound deliveries
  • Reduced claims from misaligned pricing
  • Reduced order errors from misaligned data (e.g. GTIN)
  • Synchronised item and pricing data with suppliers
  • Faster re-ordering from POA to reduce potential out of stocks
  • Utilise industry standard eCommerce protocols
  • Faster invoice processing
  • The opportunity to be involved with the Express Receipting program
