Nisa-Today’s consults Oracle

Nisa-Today’s the distribution and services organisation for retail and wholesale companies, wanted to create a single, flexible IT system offering multi-functionality in terms of merchandising, forecasting and order capture, and the scalability to support increasing numbers of SKUs. It selected the Oracle Retail Merchandising System, Oracle Retail Demand Forecasting and Oracle Retail Invoice Matching.

“Oracle Retail offered us an efficient solution from which we could enhance our member support and further assist them in competing in the grocery retail marketplace against the national supermarket chains. The flexibility and scalability of the technology allows us to continue to strengthen our service opportunities as we recruit more members,” says Nisa-Today’s IT director, Wayne Swallow.

Following a successful pilot in 2002-2003, Nisa-Today’s worked with implementation partner Enabler to make further modifications to enhance processes and improve efficiencies. Many of these enhancements have helped to develop the Oracle Retail Merchandising System for a wholesale business that requires an extra level of pricing between suppliers and members.

Swallow says: “Many of our members are already benefiting from the automated invoice matching process, which improves productivity by reducing the costs and time involved in managing a manual invoicing process. This has further increased internal controls and accuracy and we’re working with our remaining members to communicate the benefits of the system to them over the next 18 months.”

Nisa-Today’s is continuing to modify and improve its IT infrastructure.
