Retailing in an international and dynamically growing company means that huge merchandise flows are moving around the globe on a daily basis.
The prerequisite for this is a continuous, fast and reliable exchange of data. As the internal IT service provider of METRO GROUP, METRO SYSTEMS GmbH advises the companies belonging to the retail group in all aspects relating to IT, develops solutions along the complete value chain and provides a powerful IT infrastructure – at the national and international level.
IT in international retailing
As a globally operating retail company, efficient information technology is of the utmost significance for METRO GROUP. It ensures that the worldwide retail processes can be managed efficiently, on the one hand, while it offers decisive competitive advantages by making sure that the right information is available at the right time and place, on the other. At the international but also at the local level it allows for perfect workflows and a fast and flexible response to market requirements.
