ALDI Nord implements new ERP system
After a project duration of less than one year, the ALDI Nord group switched its ERP system to the standardised branch solution SAP Retail. The first regional company is now working with the new solution comprising the classical goods movements, master data delivery to the stores, warehouse disposition and store accounting as well as relevant statistics. The objective is to support efficient and easy work in the regional companies and stores with a modern software also in the future. The very short project duration was achieved with the help of the cooperation partners SAP and Consenso Consulting GmbH.
The new software enables improved transparency along the flow of goods from suppliers to customers. Highest possible flexibility in terms of analysability of data is ensured by the so-called HANA database used for SAP Retail and based on in-memory technology. SAP operates the system in the HANA Enterprise Cloud. During the next months, SAP Retail will be implemented in the other ALDI companies at home and abroad.
