FIS/wws – the industrial solution for Technical Wholesale

The increasing automation and digitization of business processes present trading companies with the challenge of efficiently processing a large amount of information and data. In technical wholesale, optimal delivery capability and low capital commitment are key success factors in particular. For wholesalers, this means networking digitally with upstream companies such as manufacturers and suppliers, as well as with downstream partners such as retailers, wholesale markets, or craftsmen, in order to know all the necessary information in real-time. This ultimately results in time, quality, and cost advantages.

FIS has had the relevant industry expertise for over 25 years and is the market leader in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland with its industrial solution FIS/wws. Thus, FIS supports your company ideally and knows the specific industry processes of wholesalers down to the last detail. The FIS/wws ERP system is based on reliable SAP software, which even in the standard version offers you all the specific functions that are indispensable in modern wholesale. With the implementation, you receive predefined industry processes and no development project. This saves time and costs in the course of the project and enables you to implement the SAP software quickly and easily. Through the seamless connection of embedded SAP EWM (Extended Warehouse Management), you also have smooth end-to-end processes in your warehouse logistics.

SAP evaluations and reporting for technical wholesale

By implementing system-supported reporting, wholesalers always keep key performance indicators in view and thus make fact-based decisions. FIS/wws CDS Views (Core Data Services) seamlessly connect SAP S/4HANA and analytics tools, enabling wholesale-specific evaluations to be carried out without technical effort.

The use of FIS/wws CDS Views makes it possible to read and prepare business data from the system tables. The user can view the evaluations clearly in the form of tables, graphs or charts in the analysis tool of his choice (e.g. with tools such as SAP Analytics Cloud or from the SAP BusinessObjects portfolio). The data models are always flexible and can be extended independently to include additional features. In this way, reporting can be performed easily and in real time.

For example, users can use the FIS/wws CDS View for “live billing reporting” to create sales analyses for various company departments (e.g. management, branch managers, field sales managers, salesforce) with just a few clicks. These analyses can be created in different summarization levels (e.g. sales organization, profit center, distribution channel, customer, article) down to the individual document. The integration of ERP and analysis tools is executable from day one. Relevant FIS/wws additional fields can also be evaluated.
