Reliable Cashbox Solution for the Plant Outlet – it.cash&countersalesADD
Niehoff sells its products not only online and by retail, but also via a plant outlet. Some of their products are sold directly to the customer and offered at a discount here. To process the customers payments simply and directly from Point-of-Sale (POS), Niehoff is using the it.cash&countersalesADD cashbox solution from NTT DATA Business Solutions, thus ensuring not only maximum transparency for the tax office and auditors, but also meeting legal requirements.
Perfect Match – Smart NTT DATA Business Solutions Solutions Combined Cleverly
The new preconfigured cashbox application was introduced in just a matter of weeks and is now enabling simple processing of counter sales and fast payments. Niehoff uses the functions of the it.x-pressADD dispatch solution and the it.x-press.atlasADD solution for export declaration to German customs authorities. Also, the manufacturer employs it.documents for ERPADD to generate customer-relevant documents automatically, accurately and in compliance with law.
Processes on Point – Clearing the Way for the Cashbox Solution in the S/4 Edition
As part of an experience workshop, Niehoff’s employees from various departments expanded their knowledge concerning the SAP S/4HANA solution through hands-on experience as part of a real-time market simulation. The further implementation of SAP S/4HANA will open up new chances for the cashbox solution as well, which is available in the S/4 Edition and provides a 360° view on customers. The innovative interface of the new cashbox solution based on SAP Fiori not only provides increased usability, but also creates an additional boost to productivity through its new touchscreen capability.
Together with NTT DATA Business Solutions, Ceyoniq could implement SAP S/4HANA Cloud as their new ERP system in only six months and as a special project highlight, only four sub processes required slight adjustments.
With the implementation of SAP S/4HANA Finance, EUCHNER can now realize integrative, cross-departmental processes for the business units Purchasing, Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), Sales, Logistics as well as Financial Accounting and Controlling.
