Neoris Launches New DSD Initiative for Market Execution

New Mobile Composite Application for Consumer Packaged Goods Industry integrated with SAP ERP

Neoris, a global business and IT consulting company, today announced the launch of a new Direct Store Delivery (DSD) initiative. Neoris is introducing a new Mobile composite application for the consumer packaged goods (CPG) industry: ActiveSuite(TM) XSales. The new solution leverages the SAP NetWeaver(R) technology platform and is operational on thousands of routes across multiple clients.



ActiveSuite XSales relies on a business process platform and has no functional overlap with back-end SAP(R) solutions. It is fully process- and master-data compliant while providing increased flexibility and delivering sought-after strategic adjustments required by many companies in the current economy. Neoris ActiveSuite 6.0 covers logistics execution and market execution. ActiveSuite XSales is the DSD module applied to the market execution scenario, and the transportation management-integrated ActiveSuite Logistics solution is applied to logistics execution. Both scenarios are completely localized for the Latin American market and are immediately available across the region, including Brazil. The products support multiple languages, including English, Spanish and Portuguese.

"Companies that depend on market execution capabilities on the point of sale must gain agility while achieving core processes standardization," said Lionel Carrasco , chief technology officer at Neoris. "However, it is crucial to do so while taking into consideration the local market conditions. Solutions from SAP and Neoris, combined with our consultants' deep knowledge of the industry, will provide a long-awaited, solid answer to CPG customers' requirements to use one, single application for all of their mobile needs."

Neoris has integrated ActiveSuite XSales with the SAP ERP and SAP Customer Relationship Management (SAP CRM) applications to maximize existing SAP assets on fully integrated processes and to end master data redundancy. ActiveSuite 6.0 has been certified by SAP as powered by SAP NetWeaver in the composite applications category, is platform-user-licensing (PUL) compliant, and is listed on the SAP EcoHub solutions marketplace at: https://ecohub.sdn.sap.com/irj/ecohub/solutions/ActiveSuite7

"We believe it will be a complementary solution for our Latin American clients, allowing them to integrate front-office, point-of-sales functionality with SAP ERP, SAP CRM and SAP BusinessObjects(TM) business intelligence solutions by leveraging enterprise services," said Steven Birdsall , chief operating officer, SAP International Inc.

When used together with SAP solutions, including SAP ERP, SAP CRM and SAP BusinessObjects business intelligence (BI) solutions, Neoris' ActiveSuite XSales solution allows mobile workers to execute different roles in the field, using a single application - ActiveSuite XSales. The value proposition is based on the use of SAP's back-end solutions with Neoris' mobile front-end, fully functional and armed mobile market execution composite application.

Mobile workers' roles can be configured as pre-sales, delivery, van-sales, mixed-routes, merchandiser and supervisors. Processes related to sales execution (SE), logistics execution (LE) and trade and marketing execution (T&M) are achievable in a single, configurable mobile application that adapts to any market needs, thanks to its ample configuration capabilities.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world.

Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
