Next Generation Retail for a new normal.
Thursday, October 29, 2020 | 9:55-10:30am | Elkjøp and Westernacher
Nordic retail giant Elkjøp operates based on a brick and mortar and online omni- channel model supported by state-of-the-art purchasing systems and efficient logistics. They have a clear SAP system strategy that includes digitalization with an end-to-end last-mile delivery supply chain management solution.
In partnership with Westernacher Consulting and EINR, Elkjøp successfully built and rolled out a solution to their 36 stores in Denmark during COVID-19. The supply chain execution solution was developed by Westernacher, combining SAP TM, EWM, EM, three mobile applications, EDI and subsequently SAP’s Carrier Collaboration Portal.
Following the successful go-lives, Elkjøp have attained best-in-class last-mile delivery with fully automatic home delivery planning and full visibility in tour execution for their employees and customers. The success will continue the roll out with aprox 400 stores and an extensive home distribution network in Norway, Sweden and Finland during 2021.
eCommerce with SAP in Salling Group – can you do it in 6 months rather than 2 years please?
Thursday, October 29, 2020 | 10:45 - 11:15am | Salling Group and Westernacher
When high levels of disruption hit the market with eCommerce taking center stage, Salling Group had to very quickly enable our organization to deliver on changing business strategy. How do we meet the challenge of a strategic timeline suddenly changing from 2 years to 6 months? How do we leverage SAP EWM, TM, ECC, EM and some add on technology to make it happen?
