Case
Colruyt Group – Video Testimonial

Colruyt Group is a retail group that consists of over forty brands for individuals and businesses. The ‘Service Center Product Information’ (SCPI) is responsible for managing the information with regards to every product that’s sold through one of Colruyt Group’s many channels.

This means they have to handle thousands of requests regarding new product launches, product updates, and discontinuations of a certain product type. The amount of data they receive and manage from suppliers and internal departments makes it a challenging job.

Knowledge workers within the SCPI have to execute complex tasks involving many counterparts. On top of that information is at the core of every case, and every case follows its own path.

This means it was very logical for Colruyt Group to deploy an adaptive case management solution.

“When I see what Ground lion is capable of: the systems responsible for cases and their tasks, follow-up, reporting; have convinced me that Ground lion is the right choice. – Lieve Van De Maele, Manager Service Center Product Information at Colruyt Group
