The Customer's Voice

Engagement Summary

Nutrien recently took over the merged iconic rural brands ‘Landmark’ and ‘Ruralco’ to form Nutrien Ag Solutions. Ruralco, post-merger, had a robust SAP product environment leveraged to impact its customers positively. The brand’s digital strategy aimed to use the current RuralcoNet (commerce solution) and SAP ERP for wholesale customers and affiliates of the merged businesses, to provide a unique and personalised experience on a multi-branded B2B platform

Nutrien Ag Solution’s current member base in Australia is composed of the now merged Landmark and Ruralco customers. Since both brands had predefined restrictions on particular suppliers and warehouses for their members, it was clear that Nutrien Ag Solutions would have to begin segmenting these customers on a single platform. FAIR Consulting Group had worked previously with the former Ruralco on their SAP Commerce platform.

Nutrien Ag Solutions and FAIR set out to extend the functionality of the current SAP commerce solution. We worked in close collaboration, running design workshops and creating agile sprint showcases to get early feedback during the project.

FAIR also helped Nutrien to migrate their commerce platform from SAP Commerce Cloud Version 1 to SAP Commerce Cloud Version 2.

DELIVERED PROJECTS

DESIGNING A MULTI-BRAND EXPERIENCE

In collaboration with stakeholders, FAIR designed a smart and scalable personalisation solution. We built out a Multi-brand experience for portal members.  The extended functionality provides a central rules maintenance and validation function in SAP ERP and a personalisation engine in SAP Commerce. It allows the business to flexibly define inclusion and exclusion rules on customer groups or customer levels based on the product, product groups, supplier or a combination of all three. Creating personalised experience that scale.

A rules validation program makes sure that no conflicting rules are defined and sent to SAP Commerce. The personalisation engine in SAP Commerce interprets the rules to filter the products accordingly and presents each customer with a personalised branded view of their ordering portal. FAIR was able to work with the business’ increasingly complex requirements and scope to provide the customer experience Nutrien wanted, delivering a high-quality solution on time and on budget.

MOVING FROM CCV1 TO CCV2

helped Nutrien to keep their ERP core standard and build microservices.

FAIR’s expertise in all areas from the architecture to the development of the final solution, their great communication, and ease of working with FAIR friendly team made it possible to deliver this project successfully and within the given time.

Sergei Mosin
Senior Manager, B2B, CRM
The program was to deliver a state of the art solution to support telephony based nurse triage services throughout Australia. They had all the qualities you expect from very good consultants, but most importantly it was the quality of their design that made them stand out from most consultants. Their ability to understand the essence of what was important of this critical and complex health solution, and then design a solution that was logical and easier to use than the existing system, was first rate. The user acceptance by the nurses was the highest I have seen on any project, and it was the design of the system and processes that was at the heart of this success
Chris Gebbie
Program Manager
I had the pleasure of working with FAIR as we began our digital transformation at Best & Less. Initially hired to deliver technical support, it became obvious from day one that FAIR would be able to increase our bench strength and provide practical, measurable improvements across numerous streams of work including customer experience, group IT strategy and roadmap planning to name a few. The energy was electric and the FAIR team worked seamlessly with our in-house team to deliver and exceed commercial outcomes we set as targets. I highly recommend working with FAIR if you are undergoing any digital transformation.
