Representative Accomplishments Informed Decisions Corporation – (IDC – a $10M hosted secure payment services provider) Dramatically improved project delivery times. IDC, a software engineering/consulting firm, was taking too long to complete implementation projects. Initiated process improvements, standardizing service module delivery (including ERP interfaces) to improve project completion times and enable revenue growth from $5M to $10M. Established formal customer/technical support function, fostering a 100% improvement in on-time/on-spec/on- budget project completions. IDC had no formal client support department, causing multiple service-related problems, poor customer satisfaction ratings and significant project delays. Fixed problems/increased Customer Service scores to 90%+. Matthews Book Company – (MBC – a $70M wholesale/retail medical textbook/supplies provider)) Drove major increase in order fulfillment efficiency. MBC’s system for managing $20M inventory inhibited efficient warehouse operation and contributed to excessive shrinkage. Introduced RF-based warehouse management system and successfully integrated it with existing ERP system. Saved $225K in shrinkage while minimizing fulfillment errors and achieving three-fold boost in processing times. Initiated development of website to enable online capability. MBC was uncompetitive in the lucrative Internet marketplace. For $200K, built B2B website that saved about $30K per year in FTE expense and fostered $25M in additional revenue production. Subsequently at least 50% of all orders came from electronic sources. Dramatically enhanced sales force productivity, cutting 3600 man-hours by automating costly/labor-intensive inventory process across hundreds of health science stores. Sales Reps would spend one full day comparing each store’s inventory to MBC’s best-seller list to ensure optimum accuracy. Automated process with Palm-based scanning application, freeing sales personnel to spend more time in the actual sales process. Innovated a new website, driving revenues from key business niche. Medical bookstores accounted for $40M of MBC’s annual sales. Created a menu-driven Internet resource, enabling MBC to sell directly to the end consumer. Achieved a 13% sales increase and dramatically reduced shipping costs to produce higher margins. Expanded functionality of dedicated inventory management/POS system, enabling $100K per year revenue boost from sale of open-system application to health science bookstores outside the MBC chain. Formerly, the aforementioned system was only functional in MBC-operated stores. Moved application to UNIX platform, expanding installations from 12 to 48. CHARLES J.
