As Australia’s leading wholesaler, Metcash delivers to more than 10,000 retail customers supported by distribution centres in each of the major cities, as well as smaller regional centres. They also supply around 90,000 wholesale customers from smaller branches across the country.
FAIR Consulting Group partnered with Metcash to help support the development and implementation of an online B2B marketplace using SAP commerce. The “IndieDirect” Marketplace was aimed to help both suppliers and retailers seamlessly interact and make purchasing, sourcing and supplying easier. FAIR worked to establish a robust, agile development culture for the project. We also helped to enhance the front-end development processes, by introducing a scalable and optimised code structure.
The team worked to get the platform up and running with minimum delays. Our approach helped Metcash to establish a vibrant and scalable UI component library to expedite the development of the front-end. Our optimisation work reduced their future costs for maintaining and supporting the application. Most importantly, the IndieDirect digital marketplace enabled Metcash to establish a secure network of suppliers and retailers to stay ahead of their competitors effectively.
