When will Your Company be Migrated to the amfori Sustainability Platform?

08-09-2020

 

The migration of amfori members from the amfori BSCI Platform to the amfori Sustainability Platform continues to take place over the second half of 2020. Members are migrated in segments with an approximate frequency of one segment per week.

A segment is a group of members that:

- falls under the same classification (as declared by a company in the application form submitted for joining amfori), these are usually divided by industry.

- is migrated on the same date

To date, four segments of amfori members have been migrated. Those are members which are classified in the product categories: Cosmetics, Toys, Electronics and Shoes.

Segments are sequenced so as to migrate a member only when all features currently used by this member are available and fully functioning in the new platform. This means that the sequence of segments is carefully planned to meet the business needs of members.

Based on the type of services that member companies are using, the estimated time window for migration are available below:

 

Estimated start of migration  Name of segment (classification)
September 

Paper goods 

Accessories 1 

Accessories 2 

October (this wave of migration will

include members with branches)

DIY 1 

DIY 2

*Adaptations of the segments are possible during the process of migration and will be reflected in the communication of members.

Separate timelines are agreed on a one-to-one basis with members which require a system-to-system interface.

How do I know the exact date when my company will be migrated? amfori notifies members of a segment four weeks prior to migration. Over the four week period, each member receives three notifications with guidelines on how to prepare for migration and with the exact timeline.

Why are all members not migrated at the same time? Conducting a one-off migration entails a high risk of failure and errors that could bring the business of members to a standstill. Therefore, the strategy has been chosen to implement migration in waves.
