Better Business

Closing in on customer relations

Now all of Eldorado’s customer data is pulled into SAP CRM. This helps Eldorado to know and understand their customers better. SAP Customer 360 enables Eldorado to get even closer to their customers. SAP BW on SAP HANA has decreased the time of cost allocation in the closing period from a four-day run down, to four hours.

SAP Planning for Retail software is now integrated into Eldorado’s logistics and purchasing processes. Their buyers currently work directly with Eldorado’s Planning for Retail tools, which gives them better insights to analytics, and the knowledge they need to make the right purchases.
