Promotions - delivers a long expected and required functionality

The operator of small and medium chains of convenience stores or supermarkets could not afford the installation of TPEnterprise solutions like TPAdmin and TPAnalyse to create the reports of the results of promotions and sales campaigns.
With the introduction of 4.x, Wincor Nixdorf introduced the local store reporting facility, to produce an overview of promotional sales.
This gives the retailer an idea of success or failure of special sales activities. In addition a report about the manual discounts allows the control of the cashiers.


The Service Plus development process

Service Plus is following a simplified development process, defined by Siemens.

Basically there are four phases, which are:

  1. Requirement specification
  2. Requirement analysis
  3. Implementation
  4. Acceptance

Each phase ends with a well-defined milestone with a complete set of documents attached to it.


Data Collecting Requirements

More and more requirements come up, to collect data from retailers to calculate revenue dependent shop rents or marketing activities and for administrative and control purposes from government departments.


Octopus at Boso in Croatia

The Octopus success story continues. One of the leading Croatian retail chains decided to use Octopus for the synchronization and communication of their POS application with their checkout Magellan Barcode Scanner from Datalogic with integrated Bizerba scales. Tis enables Boso to automate the process of weight item handling at the checkout. Besides the process automation the implementation has a huge impact on the reduction of fraud and increases the shopping convenience for the customers at same time. An additional advantage for the retailer is the reduction of human resources in the fruit and vegetable sales area.


Integration as the key for process automation

It is obvious that the retail IT environment is very complex; there are many business processes which need different technologies and solutions and have to interact with each other in order to create real business benefits. In this environment the integration is a crucial task for the success of the business. Typically the “big integration” is the focus of the project  – meaning the integration of extensive solutions like POS with ERP or other head office and store solutions. But addressing details in the store environment the integration of simple pieces of hardware automates processes and has big advantages for the retailer. This is confirmed by the latest projects Service Plus executed (as described above).
