OVERVIEW

InfoCert for large-scale retail sector

The large-scale retail sector, now more than in the past, is called upon to respond to the challenges of an increasingly competitive market, where the need to automate procedures and to control the various phases of the supply chain in a centralised manner has become increasingly important to ensure logistical efficiency and resilience in the face of possible critical situations.

CHALLENGE

Digitising purchasing contracts for greater operational efficiency

A major player in the large-scale retail sector turned to InfoCert to undertake a digital transformation. The client is considered the largest organisation of independent retail entrepreneurs in the country, with cooperatives associating more than 2000 retailers.

The customer turned to InfoCert to dematerialise the process of signing contracts and orders with its suppliers, which was still tied to a Contract Management system that did not offer the possibility of digital signatures.

This innovative step would meet the need to guarantee with certainty the arrival of goods at their point of sale thanks to the real time tracking of all stages of the process: from the signature, acceptance to the countersignature of their order in a simple and immediate way.

SOLUTION

GoSign to digitally sign and share documents and contracts

To meet these needs, InfoCert proposed the adoption of GoSign, which immediately proved to be an added value for the customer. In fact, GoSign is InfoCert’s signature platform that enables the creation, signing, authentication and digital storage of documents and contracts that previously had to be prepared and signed physically by the entire supplier network.

Thanks to InfoCert’s GoSign, the Customer has recorded more than 3000 transactions, involving around 1000 suppliers to date, thus speeding up business processes and improving operational efficiency.
