Novasoft, a leading retail systems specialist, has launched novaRetail, a ready-made software solution for small to medium-sized retailers, which is based on SAP R/3 for Retail, and which will significantly cut implementation times and make deployment into the business much easier.
Aimed at retailers seeking a more innovative approach to SAP implementation, novaRetail includes the integrated components necessary for managing the retail enterprise (including the warehouse and supply chain) at a cost of less than 500,000.
According to Novasofts managing director, Roy Tomlinson, 70-80% of retail processes are the same from retailer to retailer so we have incorporated these common processes as templates into novaRetail. As a result, retailers adopting novaRetail can expect development times to be cut from 16 to three months and costs cut by up to 50%. For the first time, retailers can take advantage of ERP for the same costs and timescales as best of breed.
Novasoft has based the core retail functionality of novaRetail on its 14 years as a dedicated SAP reseller and implementation specialist and on its experience at leading retailers including, Halfords, B&Q, Unwins and The Big Food Group. In addition, it has also adopted Novasoft Group experience across Europe and Asia from retailers such as Metro, Lidl&Schwarz and B&Q International.
novaRetail contains 44 different retail and wholesale processes all based on retail best practice as defined by SAP and fine tuned by Novasofts own retail specialists. The solutions are backed by extensive user guides and training materials to further ease deployment.
