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 and early 2021.
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, nine segments of amfori members have been migrated.
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:
|Segment||Date of migration||Segment||Estimated date of migration|
|Cosmetics||June 2020||Furniture||November 2020|
|Toys||July 2020||Household Goods (1)||December 2020|
|Electronics||August 2020||Household Goods (2)||December 2020|
|Shoes||August 2020||Members with branches||January 2021|
|Paper Goods||September 2020||Sporting Goods||January 2021|
|Accessories (1)||September 2020||Garments & Textiles||February 2021|
|Accessories (2)||October 2020||SA8000||February 2021|
|DIY (1)||October 2020||General Merchandising (1)||February 2021|
|DIY (2)||November 2020||General Merchandising (2)||March 2021|
|Home Textiles||March 2021|
|Food & Beverages||March 2021|
*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.
