Internet Project Manager - Electrolux - 1997 - 2002

Worked as an Internet Project Manager for one of the subsidiaries of the Electrolux Group, a Swedish giant that is the leading manufacturer of household appliances worldwide with annual sales of USD 14 Billion in over 150 countries. Electrolux holds over 300 product brands and among them are: Frigidaire, Eureka and White Westinghouse. A brief description of some of these projects follows below.

e-business development - Responsible for designing, planning and implementing a large e-business strategy for the South American operation. Working together with department managers from IT, Sales, Marketing, Exports,Services, Purchasing and Production and a group of dedicated internet programmers and designers I coordinated a series of projects that automated business processes,optimized the company's perfomance on the web and improved the corporation's relationship with customers and suppliers. Due to a corporate approach to the implementation, the projects were successfully deployed in 4 different commercial divisions and 5 plants, which eliminated duplicated efforts, reduced operational costs and avoided 'orphan' systems and databases.

e-Procurement- Designed and put into effect together with the purchasing team and software development partners a solution named 'Smartbuy' for the Purchasing Department which re-structured the purchasing of indirect material for all 5 plants.This internal site was available for employees to purchase from a catalogue which was populated directly by authorized suppliers and audited by the purchasing personnel.The time lead for purchasing of indirect material was reduced from a month to 3 days and the cost reduction was measured in about 50%. This solution become a success case for the Group and it was higlhy recommended for replication in other countries.

Intranet and Extranet - Managed the team that put into effect Electrolux Intranet and Extranet websites. These projects streamlined internal processes, improved communication between employees, resellers and service partners. The B2B solutions made it possible for the exchange of information and technical documentation between Electrolux and its business partners.

The projects above created new business opportunities, promoted more sales and resulted in an annual cost reduction of 1 Million Dollars due to increased efficiency
