Fencing limited is a small to medium enterprise in Wollongong, New South Wales, who employs approximately 250 people.
Their primary business is selling fencing supplies to the construction, mining and manufacturing industries across Australia and they act as a wholesaler and a retail organisation. They also like to consider themselves as a nimble organisation which can quickly move into new market segments and product areas if the opportunity arises importing stock mostly from China. They have a 100-person call centre working in the Wollongong and a team of 50 salespeople who work across Australia. The remainder of the staff work in administration and the warehouse. The call centre cold calls organisations as well as taking calls from existing customers. They would like to transfer away from having teams of salespeople to a more online sales model. Currently their website contains information on products and details of how to contact head office, but you cannot purchase from the website.
Fencing Limited want to be able to better manage their inventory and allow wholesale customers to purchase directly from the website and see current stock levels. They would also like the customers to be able to see when more stock is arriving. There are still silos of information and it is important to the top management of Fencing Limited that their information systems become more integrated to better share and manage information. The owner of Fencing Limited is interested in moving toward a business model which makes better use of customer and sales data and has a robust online sales facility reducing the need for call centre and sales-people staff. He also wants to have much better real time reporting from the integrated data. Peter Smith is ready to invest $100 000 a year for the next three years but wants return on this investment.
