Solutions

The price formation process is one of the key processes for retail and wholesale companies. When setting the price, it is necessary to find the balance between marginality and turnover on one side and competitors’ prices on the other.

To help solution making process, Sapiens offers a pre-adjusted solution that lets us:

  • organize the collection and storage of data regarding competitors’ prices.
  • set up a working place for the person responsible for price formation, including interactive calculation of the key factors, such as elasticity of demand.
  • automate the process of price coordination with responsible specialists.

Due to large amount of data that is a component of implementing SAP for Retail system, the use of batch accounting is not recommended. It helps SAP ERP Retail system to function properly but imposes a series of restrictions on management accounting, as well as on turnover and leftover stock data analysis.

Based on our experience, we developed a solution that, with certain suppositions, computerizes batch accounting for retail companies. Our solution for virtual batch accounting is based on FIFO approach, or on the concept of redistributing sales and movement of goods in proportion with leftover stock. Our pre-adjusted solution allows to computerize the following fields of turnover data analysis:

  • analysis of proceeds, prime cost and leftover stock in supplier's angle.
  • attribution of suppliers’ bonuses on prime cost.
  • analysis of turnover in supplier's angle.

  • analytical accounting for collation.
  • automatic formation of tax accounting.

Based on our experience of implementation of budgeting systems in wholesale and retail companies, we developed a pre-adjusted architecture that allows to unfold the budgeting model on SAP BW platform. The pre-adjusted model’s functions include goal setting, turnover planning, clause budget collection and calculation of 3 master-budgets - estimated P&L, the budget of money movement with the direct method and budget balance. The unfolding of pre-adjusted solution, including the training of finance department and IT department key specialists, takes approximately 4 months. It also includes basis parameters, compilation and coordination of the master data (budget clauses, FRC), unfolding of the system and tutorial.

Our pre-adjusted solution allows our clients to:

  • set goals, limits for clauses or groups of clauses (up-and-down budgeting).
  • carry out FRC budget collection in accordance with responsibility matrix (down-up budgeting).
  • plan the turnover.
  • calculate master budgets based on transaction cards, where every budget clause corresponds to budget checks and CFS clauses.
  • plan/actual analysis of budget implementation.
  • upgrade the pre-adjusted budgeting system with the use of BI-IP or SAP PBC functionalities depending on business tasks in the future.

The concept of running the company with KPI exists for a long time already and is used by many managers. We offer technical automation of metrics model based on SAP BW platform or using the Open source solutions.

This solution is based on creating passports with connected indexes to form a calculation tree. A newly added index is automatically reflected in standard SAP BW accounting, as well as in the mobile app. Index parameters include rules of its reflection, unit of measure, diagram and table reflection shape, pertinence of cuts fact/plan/forecast etc.

Additional reports for both SAP BW and mobile app, based on the created model, can be developed if necessary.
