SAP for Retail Solution Adoption Increases in India

by Deepak Sharma on Tuesday, March 24, 2009

SAP has been making giant leaps in India with increased adoption of its software in retail industry. I had blogged about the same few months back and that time SAP had over 60 Retailers to talk about, the list now has gone upto 72.

Over 72 leading retailers, including DLF Retail, Khadim Jewellers, Fresh & Honest Cafe, Super Religare Laboratories and Religare Wellness Limited, Dimexon Diamonds and C Mahendra, have simplified business processes, reduced cost and adapted to the changing industry landscape with the adoption of SAP for retail solutions.

Retailers are using SAP for building end to end solutions and not just as ERP.

In the retail sector, technology is deployed not only in accounting and human resource management, but also in core functions like buying, merchandising and store management.
"IT applications are witnessing adoption from the very beginning till the 'last mile' of the business operation for most retail functions and the key solutions being looked upon by retailers in India today are ERP/ERM solutions, supply chain management (SCM), inventory management and security solutions," said Arpan Gupta, manager-services, BPO & Industry Verticals Research, IDC India.

Retailers across the board are using SAP technology for greater visibility into consumer spending trends. Among the latest implementation of SAP in India is DLF's foray into retail - adopting SAP for retail solutions including SAP POS.
