Vedes AG SUCCESS STORY OF A CUSTOMER PROJECT

The individual departments are accommodated in the front building, only two steps away from a showroom as big as a football pitch – 5,000 square meters full of teddy-bears, table soccers, books, board games and much more. However, this comprehensive product selection is only a small section of the entire range of 400,000 products. Since 2011, the VEDES headquarters has administrated the master data of these products by using the SAP-integrated FIS/mpm solution. 

Using FIS/mpm, the group is able to work more securely and improve the data quality of its SAP system significantly. In FIS/mpm, master data is edited, checked and subsequently transferred to the used ERP or retailing system outside the production system. Moreover, FIS/xee is used to harmonize the exchange of transaction data between VEDES and its suppliers.
