Portalink has been helping Legrand Australia to manage their e-Catalogues since 2015.

In 2019, Legrand Australia launched their Portalink™C-Suite transaction engine which has eliminated most of the manual processing of customer purchase orders, eliminated errors and streamlined many of the demanding manual business processes. Watch the videos to see a system demonstration and an in-depth interview with the team who made it happen.

BEFORE PORTALINK

56% of all orders required manual data entry or manual intervention.

Orders received by email and fax require 'high touch' manual data entry.

Portalink automatically captures and converts order documents into electronic data, with unprecedented accuracy.

The new system eliminates most of the manual data handling that was previously required.

Time saved on manual data entry enables better customer service with faster order fulfilment and elimination of costly errors.

 

Portalink frees up time for the team to focus on more rewarding customer service activities rather than being overwhelmed with order entry tasks that add no value to the business.

AFTER THE FIRST TWO MONTHS:

1] A total of 27,085 orders were processed of which 8,481 were PDF type orders received by email and fax (i.e. non-EDI).

 

2] Of the non-EDI orders, 80% (6,795) are now processed within three minutes, and 28% (2,341) are now processed within 30 seconds

 

3] The average processing time for all non-EDI orders was 2 minutes and 38 seconds (02:38).
