(PresseBox) ( Paderborn, )
s.Oliver Bernd Freier GmbH & Co. KG was launched some 40 years ago with a 25 m² shop in Würzburg, Southern Germany. Today, the company is one of the top 10 in the international fashion industry.

This rapid growth meant greater requirements were demanded of processes at the stores and headquarters. s.Oliver needed a software solution that could be used worldwide and provide ideal support for its international growth and country-specific features. The solution also had to be able to handle all the relevant processes at the stores and headquarters and in particular integrate smoothly into SAP for Retail. To round out the perfect checkout, s.Oliver also demanded a state-of-the-art, intuitive POS solution and an international support concept.

Optimal processes and a perfect shopping experience. s.Oliver opted for Wincor Nixdorf as its solution partner and hence for the cutting-edge software platform, the BEETLE POS system and a high and internationally consistent level of service. All s.Oliver stores are to be equipped with the all-round solution from Wincor Nixdorf by the end of 2014. The partnership is focused on one objective: to create optimal processes worldwide at the stores and thus make an important contribution to a perfect shopping experience at s.Oliver. covers all relevant processes. The SAP-certified retail solution from Wincor Nixdorf has already proven its worth at many international retailing companies. It also enables s.Oliver to cover all relevant processes at its stores and headquarters. Thanks to its multilingual capability it can be deployed internationally in place of the different country-specific software used to date. s.Oliver also benefits from its central control and analysis options. For example, key performance indicators from the individual stores can be retrieved using and analyzed centrally after being transferred to SAP BI, while information on things such as the assortment, price changes and promotions can be communicated by headquarters to the international locations quickly and easily.

Internationally available solution from a single source. A key criterion in s.Oliver's decision was also to obtain the hardware and software from a single source and to ensure reliable support worldwide. Wincor Nixdorf also met those requirements with its state-of-the-art BEETLE POS systems and extensive, internationally standardized service portfolio that can be expanded flexibly even as far as a full-service package (managed services).
