It will come as no surprise to anyone that supermarkets have been going digital. Taking advantage of the new shopping option, clients are saving time and money while gaining better control of their shopping cart. The long delivery time for pre-ordered products may be the only factor preventing them from purchasing essential goods online.

That, however, will not be the case for clients shopping on the Czech Košik website. The company provides a same-day shopping delivery service. Košik is one of the largest online shops offering food and drugstore products and household appliances. They have thousands of clients across the Czech Republic, which would be impossible to achieve without smart technologies.

David Pěknic (Košik) and Petr Zavoral (Sabris) discuss assumptions for digital transformation, reasons behind the decision to go digital, and practical experience during and after the implementation project. They also comment on the warehouse automation process based on SAP EWM implemented by Košik as part of its international expansion effort. It is thanks to EWM that clients receive deliveries on time.

Two prosperous companies merging to form a more powerful entity and operating on a greater scale are not such a rarity. Such was the story of Dormer and Pramet which have been operating under a single name (Dormer Pramet) since their merger.

The company is a manufacturer and supplier of cutting tools. The overriding assumption of their operations is that clients are a top priority. This is shown by giving clients access to a vast array of high-quality products in the shortest possible time. The company has adopted a goal of delivering 95% of orders overnight, which requires a reliable planning process given the catalogue of over 40,000 products.

This would not be possible without an efficient ERP system. Let’s take a closer look at how the company has been achieving its goals since 1996. They have been using SAP solutions while managing the entire manufacturing process under a single system. This has been coupled with continuous efforts to improve the production module in order to maintain high manufacturing quality and reliability of deliveries and improve overall corporate productivity.

Let’s visit the company’s research facility and production plant in Sumperk (Czechia) to find out about its roadmap to a factory of the future according to Industry 4.0 trends and based on SAP product capabilities. This becomes even more interesting once we learn that Dormer Pramet has begun implementing the MES quality management system across all manufacturing plants and sales branches in order to gather all business and manufacturing processes under the umbrella of a single integrated and optimised system.

Recently, many organizations have become painfully aware of the negative impact of sudden changes in the business and digital supply chain environment. It was impossible to anticipate these disruptions, but we could have been prepared better!

Those who had started their journey towards digital transformation earlier were able to quickly analyze and scale the business to new, completely unexpected needs. And those who already had had supply chain management tools in place were able to use the opportunities that emerged when their competitors found themselves in distress after the status quo collapsed.
