Implementation of the unified solution for business management to every German, Czech, and Russian
branch of international chain of hypermarkets Globus became one of the biggest projects based on SAP for
Retail. Objective for the Russian branch was to establish a flexible, modern system which would lay the
foundation for further initiatives within the company and would facilitate its future development.
During the project, IT-architecture of the company was substantially updated. Now data on processes
flowing in every branch is aggregated within a single system that allows real-time access. The changes
brought staff from 13 outlets, distribution center, and coordination office to the single digital space.
Lower time to generate an order on a supplier’s side
Lower cost of inventory control
Implementation project based on SAP for Retail helped to improve transparency of all business processes.
Automatic ordering based on the SAP F&R system shows the whole assortment of products getting through distribution center.
The objective to replace paperwork with digital documentation was achieved, which means that paper documents are no longer in use, unless it is required by law.
Promotion campaigns were also subject to change: now the SAP Promotion Management is used for promotion planning, while SAP for Retail automatically creates promotion campaigns.
