Leading Danish Food Retail Chain Launches Digitization Initiative with SAP Platform

Coop Denmark is changing its business processes and modernizing its IT systems with a completely new retail platform based on SAP S/4HANA. This optimizes procurement, logistics and marketing processes in particular.

 

“This is a once in a generation initiative, the biggest of its kind ever at Coop, and naturally our expectations are high. We have decided for KPS as partner to guide us on this journey, based on their experience in the grocery retail industry and a very hands-on approach to make business and IT succeed together.”
