A Multi-Faceted Program of Digital Transformation


In 2022, Gerard led a multi-faceted program of digital transformation, process automation, and customer integration to accelerate, automate and eliminate duplication of business processes across the organisation.

In total, 12 key business processes were digitised and automated in whole or in part. Essential business resources across all competencies and departments were released from manual data entry functions to enable refocus on analysis, growth, and business excellence.

This program's conception and execution have greatly improved our organisational effectiveness and helped us put our customers and employees at the centre of business operations. Codex can now do more, faster, better, and more accurately. The organisation can also maintain its growth trajectory while improving customers, key suppliers, and employees’ sentiments. The result has increased employee engagement and retention, allowing staff to focus on the most difficult, exciting, and complex organisational tasks.


A Strengthened, Scalable and Secure Future


These actions have freed up organisational resources across all corporate pillars and operations, enabling Codex to accomplish more, continue to satisfy the needs of its customers, and be the market leader in its key sectors of Office Supplies, Furniture, and Print. Codex's long-term scalability and security have greatly improved thanks to the delivery of digital transformation, monetisation of the IT function, and organisational efficiency through process automation. This achievement would not have been possible without Gerard's leadership. It has considerably aided in creating a modern IT department and business as a whole and made Codex a Great Place to Work.
