The Genossenschaft Migros Basel is one of 10 regional Migros, the largest supermarket chain in Switzerland. Migros Basel has approximately 4,000 staff and in 2003 generated sales of CHF 1,153 million (EUR 757 million).
The company is expanding with strong activities in Germany and therefore decided to introduce a suitable controlling software for budgeting and reporting.
Management Factory realised an integrated planning system at Migros Basel on the basis of Winterheller Software’s Professional Planner, which enables detailed commercial invoice planning based on stores and product groups using top-down and bottom-up methods. In addition, detailed cost centre planning and a reporting tool for top management were implemented. The planning solution was integrated into the existing ERP system and several hundred thousand sets of data replaced.
