Keytree developed retail template

Keytree has developed its own SAP S/4HANA 1809 Private Cloud and retail industry template based on SAP best practices – plus we have a model company for demos and POCs called Sunshine. We have created a retail solution covering core retail functionality (products, listing, allocations, merchandising distribution and POS integration).

This is the basis of the S/4HANA solution that Keytree delivered at Ireland’s leading petrol forecourt retailer, who are growing significantly in the United Kingdom and the USA. The current solution has a broad functional scope (finance, sales, purchasing, inventory, manufacturing, quality, maintenance and retail functionality) as well as deploying a number of the latest SAP innovations. Keytree is constantly evolving this template through a series of quarterly releases.
