Success Story

Successful go live at Volg: SAP Retail with S/4 Finance on HANA-DB

Volg was previously working with a historically grown and hence very heterogenous software landscape. Different areas of the company were using different individual inhouse developments that communicated through more than 150 interfaces.

The aim of this ambitious project was to replace the existing systems with a single platform that is standardised across the entire company.

SAP Retail on S/4HANA
By introducing SAP S/4HANA Retail, Volg has opted for a homogenised and integrated IT platform and is equipping itself for a future-oriented real-time business.


  • Unification of all systems on SAP Retail and S/4 Finance

  • Uniform data basis for all company divisions on S/4HANA as a basis for all analyses and future enhancements

  • Optimisation of essential merchandise management processes from procurement and logistics to sales and accounting


The close cooperation with retailsolutions has made it possible for us to integrate SAP Retail and Simple Finance successfully; our supply and service availability has always been 100%.

Director of Logistics, IT, Services of the Volg Group
