aspects of UGO: its freshbars and its salad bars. The
following systems are currently in full use: the latest POS NG
system, the NG logistics client, TPOMM central system,
interface for SAP. The implemented solution fulfilled the
goals of the project and is prepared to continuously support
the trends of modern retail for the future.
The story of the implementation
The collaboration involved consultants for
the SAP system, who participated in
interfacing data between the Kofola/UGO
central ERP system and the POSNG system,
and also involved a website contractor who
integrated customer data.
Collaboration on the POS NG project was extensive; the
project was very demanding for all parties involved not only
due to personnel changes in the realisation teams, but also
due to demands on new features in the POS NG system that
were not originally planned and emerged only over the
course of the realisation process due to newly arising needs.
The work took place in an atmosphere of mutual respect
between both realisation teams, who managed to resolve
complex technical and operational situations and find
solutions despite the complicated situation on the market
caused by the COVID-19pandemic.
