Jumbo supermarkets are a leading retailer in the Netherlands, and now they are gaining a foothold in Belgium. Three Belgian branches are now running on SAP S/4HANA, the next-gen ERP system from SAP. Ctac enabled Jumbo to build all the financial and logistical reports they need, without any help from external parties.

The challenge: standard analytics on board

Three Belgian branches are now running on SAP S/4HANA, SAP’s latest ERP system, which supports more or less all the company’s key processes, in contrast to the Dutch supermarkets, which are still running on SAP ECC, the predecessor of SAP S/4HANA. Due to the high level of customisation, the Belgian branches explicitly opted for a brand-new implementation instead of using a variant of the standard Dutch system.

The solution: easy drilldown

Tom van der Molen, SAP Finance consultant at Jumbo, is enthusiastic about the options offered by the embedded analytics capabilities. “Sometimes you want to be able to drill down into specific numbers in a report in order to view the underlying data. This is easy to do with the embedded analytics in SAP S/4HANA.” Van der Molen’s colleagues are now also discovering these benefits. They have him on speed dial. “I am constantly getting questions and requests,” he says. “Some things that people want can easily be solved with standard Fiori apps. If it’s a question we can answer with Embedded Analytics, we get to work”.
