Alphamega modernises with new software
Wednesday January 31 2018
Cypriot supermarket Alphamega has deployed new software as the centrepiece of a nationwide modernisation programme
Supported by Infor partner Indigo Software, the company has become the first organisation to adopt Aurora 3.1, the latest version of Infor’s System21 ERP application, which has been designed to help facilitate a more modernised user experience, enhance connectivity and facilitate enhanced analytics and reporting.
On the back of substantial business growth, which has seen the number of Alphamega’s outlets increase by 50% in the last two years, the company needed a robust, powerful ERP platform to support the next chapter of its growth.
Specifically, the retailer sought the capabilities to embrace opportunities presented by digitalisation, as well as the agility to respond to changing demands in its marketplace.
Working with Indigo Software (Infor’s longest standing partner for Infor System21), Alphamega selected to upgrade to Infor System21 Aurora 3.1 based on its powerful, robust platform (running on IBM Power Systems), and its ability to deliver a more modernised user experience, which can allow multiple functions to be open at any one time. Its connectivity and ability to support greater visibility, BI, analytics and reporting were also key to the decision.
“Our ethos is very much about keeping things simple,” said Stelios Papaxanthos, CFO, Alphamega Supermarkets. “Infor System21 Aurora supports this sentiment through reducing complexity and allowing us to access information which can help us make decisions quickly based on live, easy to view insights.”
