KPS experts have mapped all core and customer interaction processes for specific industries end-to-end on the KPS Instant Platforms.
The platforms are based on best practices of experienced consultants. All business scenarios of the operative core business are included, including all customer-related interactions in commerce, marketing, sales and service. Up to 85 percent of the best practice processes already implemented can be adopted directly in the standard. This saves companies time and costs during the transformation and allows them to concentrate resources on those processes that represent a real added value and business advantage.
Simple solution for SAP migration or new implementation: The platforms are designed to simplify and accelerate the migration and new implementation of SAP.
The actual transformation of the business can thus be tackled earlier and better - a critical success factor in every project initiative. There is no blueprint phase, the new business processes and business scenarios in the SAP standard can be visualised immediately and experienced directly in the system. KPS has created its own tools and experience environments for this purpose, which make it easier for users to immerse themselves in their future field of activity and to understand and accept the new processes and the end-to-end impact. Changes can be implemented immediately; their impact is directly visible on the end-to-end platform. This makes implementation easier even for people with little SAP experience.
By starting with an immediately operational system, the duration, effort and costs of the new implementation are significantly lower than in the standard approach.
Through the platform-based approach, companies gain speed and security in the transformation. For new customers, the platforms offer the possibility of directly testing and customising the ready-to-run system with standard processes that KPS provides on the basis of the customer's own master data, instead of having to formulate their own basic requirements without prior knowledge of SAP.
KPS offers four industry-specific platforms from the retail sector:
- KPS/style for fashion, luxury and lifestyle brands
- KPS/merchant for wholesale and retail
- KPS/foodservice for gastronomy and catering
- KPS/grocery for grocery
In addition, KPS/growth addresses companies with a high degree of customer interaction; such as insurance companies, industrial engineering companies and logistics providers. The offer will be successively expanded for other sectors in the B2C as well as the B2B segments, especially for manufacturers and service providers with a strong customer focus.
Future-proof design for faster changeover
KPS' new platforms run on premise or in private, public or hybrid clouds. The future-proof design relies on SAP software components, including S/4 HANA as well as various SAP Cloud SaaS solutions for customer connectivity. The tried-and-tested standard components enable processes to run reliably and in an integrated manner, while the company can focus on the few, particularly relevant processes where real value is created and which allow effective differentiation from the competition in the market.
The best of both worlds: With the new KPS Instant Platforms, companies buy a product rather than a project for their transformation - at a fixed price.
KPS is evolving towards a product provider and continues to rely on a strong partnership with SAP, which recently awarded the company Partner of the Year for Retail and Consumer Goods as well as one of the top three partners for Customer Experience world wide.
„With our Instant Platforms, we are revolutionising the path of digital transformation. We are replacing today's dominant project-oriented approach with a platform, thus combining the best of both worlds - the security and immediate availability of a finished product with the opportunity for customisation for true market differentiation. We call this approach "platformise your transformation“, comments Michael Tsifidaris, Chairman KPS AG.
