From strategy right through to system transactions
We understand strategy in the classic sense to mean a company’s planned, long-term behavior patterns aimed at achieving its goals. These patterns are broken down into operational and tactical activities and are implemented in sub-strategies. These sub-strategies must be derived accordingly, defined, and sustainably implemented.
Industry focus delivers innovative solutions
What sets the best apart from the rest? Companies that succeed concentrate on the capabilities that differentiate them from the competition and give them their competitive edge. This also applies to business processes and the deployment of technologies. And to their consulting partners.
Supplier management as a core competency
Reliable partners are increasingly a success factor for companies: As globalization of procurement markets gains ground, supplier management is becoming a business core competency. This applies both to strategic and to operational purchasing. Efficient design, management, and development of the supplier portfolio and supplier relationships are becoming a major strategic challenge.
Digitization changes everything

Bricks & Clicks
Physical stores, once thought defunct, are set to be a key part of the digital retail era. If retailers embrace this evolution, they can dramatically cut costs and turnaround times by working with a single, experienced partner.

Intelligently managing business processes
Data warehouses are now used as a matter of course to plan business success. Analytics tools are used to evaluate data on companies, their competitors, and the market, and to systematically manage operational business processes, laying the necessary foundation for sound management decisions. Big Data is of particular operational and strategic significance in omnichannel retailing.
Greater transparency and planning security
Electrolux: quicker and more efficient decision-making: Intelligent reporting on the latest company developments is crucial in reacting quickly to changes in the market. Electrolux faced the challenge of harmonizing its IT infrastructure and migrating important processes and performance indicators for its planning processes to a central business intelligence platform. In KPS, Electrolux found the ideal experienced professionals for such complex projects.
Symbiosis in manufacturer-retailer relationships
Manufacturers produce and retailers sell – at least that is how businesses operated in the past. But today’s digital transformation is starting to blur the boundaries between these traditional roles.
"We have linked 200 years of heritage with state-of-the-art industrialized processes and now deliver our products better and earlier while keeping their uniqueness and excellence."
Marco Probst, CEO, Delvaux
Transparency boosts customer satisfaction
Monitoring key strategic data and operational processes: Tracking shipments has become an important service offering in transport and logistics. It allows customers and employees to query the status of orders at any time. IT solutions of this kind have fundamentally changed the process and system landscape at a leading logistics services provider. KPS was tasked with putting in place the new reporting needed to achieve this.
Driving growth with your supply chain
Flexible supply chains get the right product to the right place at the right time. Today’s global markets demand ultra-fast response times. To master this challenge, sales and global logistics have to be perfectly coordinated. What’s more, optimized warehouse capacity management is key to driving successful growth.
Sustainability starts with process optimization
Establishing a sustainable supply chain requires a solid and stable corporate foundation – a foundation that enables all processes to be designed or optimized, making sustainable action a reality.
It’s personal – across all channels
People who shop in every channel spend more. Omnichannel consumers use all available sales channels – brick-and-mortar stores, catalogs, webshops, and call centers, in the store, at home, at the workplace, and on the move. While these consumers tend to have greater brand allegiance, they demand more of the brand and expect consistency across all channels. As customers, they want retailers to give them preferential treatment and engage with them on a personal level.
Greater transparency in reporting
Launch of a new reporting system: The implementation of a new retail solution at a leading textile discounter meant that it then needed to adapt its existing process landscapes. As a result, the requirements for monitoring the processes and for the supporting reports also changed. The reporting system designed and implemented by KPS enabled significant improvements to be achieved.
