Wholesale as a core competence of FIS
This year, FIS looks back on 30 years of company history. In 1992, the FIS experts started with the optimization of SAP solutions for the technical wholesale. Right from the start, the SAP Partner with “Gold” status has had a real good knack for trading competence. The result is, among other things, the FIS/wws industrial solution – a retailing system for technical wholesale – with which FIS is the market leader in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Many other optimizations, both wholesale-specific and cross-industry, have joined the portfolio over the past three decades and the partnership with SAP has been expanded.
20 years of FIS/eSales – tailored e-commerce solution for wholesalers
As early as 2002, FIS recognized the increasing importance of the online channel and therefore the need for action in the area of e-commerce. The FIS specialists started with the development of FIS/eSales, an e-commerce platform tailored to the needs of the technical wholesale sector. The solution has been successfully used by well-known wholesalers for 20 years and is constantly adapted to the industry-specific challenges.
FIS & Medienwerft – strong partners for online trading
It quickly became apparent that the FIS expertise was also in demand outside the technical wholesale sector. In order to be optimally positioned, the Hamburg-based Medienwerft agency was brought on board in 2016. United under the umbrella of the FIS Group, e-commerce experts work together with ERP professionals to holistically cover the challenges of SAP users in online trading. The bundling of these competences is well received: numerous customers rely on the e-commerce expertise of the FIS Group.
Best advice possible for the future
The e-commerce portfolio is completed by SAP Commerce Cloud.
