S&T Russia integrates data for retail giant M.video
Complex SAP retailing project successfully realized
Project goals achieved
The two primary project goals – the provision of a clear overview of both the warehouse stock and of the associated current goods acquisition prices - were achieved within the scheduled project time by virtue of the precise procedural methods used and the professional implementation measures. S&T Russia first logged the company’s main goods in the SAP system and then recorded the warehouse storage areas (storage halls, shops and service centers). In the next step, the various types of order were harmonized. Now it is possible to automatically place and process orders using the corporate data system - but manual orders can be executed too without any additional fine tuning. Further work was then carried out to consolidate the various types of sales orders as well as the types of goods flows (movement of goods between subsidiaries, product depletion, difference calculations during the dispatch of goods). And the final step was to carry out a fine tuning of the recording of all retail sales with regard to depreciation of the acquisition price. “The solution implemented by our Russian experts has created a foundation for the utilization of corporate data at M.video and demonstrates the skills we can offer to our customers in the retail sector“, explains Christian Rosner, CEO S&T.
Thanks to the project, the M.video management now has access to a whole range of reports which greatly facilitate the decision making processes and management of the company. There is, for instance, a report available that details goods availability broken down by date and time period. The flow of goods between subsidiaries is now also well documented; the goods are accurately and uniformly classified and labeled with their current status (sellable/unsellable). Furthermore, a comprehensive stock directory, in detail and for each subsidiary, provides an overview of the goods situation in the business. In addition, there are reports detailing bottlenecks experienced during the picking as well as the purchase prices paid for goods at each subsidiary.
