• Advantia strengthens in-house data team with new appointment

        • Advantia has enhanced its head office team with the appointment of Data and Administration Executive, Karen Roberts.

          Karen has a wealth of experience in data collection, data verification and reporting. Her previous roles have included providing financial and management information for international businesses and she has a proven track record of analytical skills which made her the perfect choice for this vital role within the Advantia team.

          The Data and Administration Executive role includes collating and verifying product data and images, querying discrepancies, investigating and rectifying data errors, re-writing customer facing product text, producing a wide range of reports for all head office departments and pricing for Advantia publications.

          Karen Roberts said, “I am so pleased to be part of the Advantia team. The work I do is varied so I work with pretty much everyone at head office. I think they have gotten used to my sense of humour now and I get a great deal of satisfaction knowing that I am helping them and our members; and what I do matters.”

          The appointment has been made to enhance the head office team as Advantia’s Merlin Marketplace e-commerce platform looks to combat the threat from Amazon Business.

          Merlin Marketplace is Advantia’s own e-commerce solution for their members. More than two years ago Advantia made the decision to manage its data in-house to make certain the data on Merlin conforms to their high standards and Karen is an additional resource within Advantia’s data team.

          Beck Miller, Advantia’s Operations Director added, “Karen joined us in February and from day one impressed me with her advanced Excel skills, her attention to detail which is wonderful, and if she has a task to do no matter how challenging, I know Karen will make it happen.  She is serious about her work, has a great sense of fun and has already proven herself to be a very capable and valuable addition to our data team.”
