As the business scaled for Sefam Group, their need for Retail services along with the support of local customization increased. Sefam Group approached Retail Pro International and they suggested the time of over a year for complete integration. Team System Plus carried out the fastest worldwide deployment of a Retail Tool to a business of this scale in 3 to 6 months.
System Plus’ Retail Pro Team acquired all the details at hand and started to devise a detailed strategy of Retail Pro Deployment. The key challenge was to integrate SAP with Retail Pro as it provides text data and Retail Pro supports XML data. Teams were assigned to carry out tasks of API conversion, currency conversions for International Market, SAP integration and custom plugin development to support the specifics.
System Plus’ Retail Team established the servers at the head-quarters and started store-wise integration of the custom package. Master trainers of these stores were trained to carry out necessary operations with the help of the tool in a workshop spanning over a month. After completely testing the trainees’ skills, the software pack was deployed to stores.
System Plus’ Retail Team handled the deployment of Retail Pro to 10-15 Sefam stores per day. In less than 2 Months, Retail Pro was deployed to over 300 stores with all the necessary custom developed plugins. This is the fastest Retail Tool deployment to a business of this scale so far.
