Overath / Germany – 07 April 2016

Purchasing for retail will gain a new dimension of transparency and accuracy: gicom today released a complementary solution for SAP® software that allows buyers to simulate margins before and during their negotiation in real time. Using gicom’s Vendor Profitability Planning & Analytics with the SAP HANA® platform and SAP Customer Activity Repository application, buyers are now able to compare vendors and calculate a net-net margin in real time, down to article level. Additionally the solution offers a convenient user interface based on SAPUI5 (HTML 5) to enable buyers to access relevant information at any time and any place.

With these solutions, buyers can tell right away if the deal the vendor is offering will be profitable by using advanced what-if simulations, forecast and analytics. This latest innovation by gicom helps retailers achieve higher margins.
