Supermercati Tosano since the' 70s has been one of the main representatives of Organized Distribution in the territory between the Provinces of Verona, Vicenza and Mantua, distinguishing itself for a commercial policy of product quality and very competitive prices.
The company, in the second half of the years two-thousand, started a path of growth characterised by the development of turnover both with network parity as well as with new openings. They made a very important commercial choice, accomplishing a food-only hypermarket format, with a very wide and far-reaching offer, continuity in offering very low prices and absence of promotional activities, thus obtaining immediate consumer-appreciation. In this context, the company, conducted with a management model centred on very clear ideas and with very fast decision-making lines, needed to have new tools and models of support for commercial governance and control of the Network, creating from scratch the management control function.
Supermercati Tosano chose E3, Dialog Sistemi's Business Intelligence and Datawarehouse platform, assessing as the strong points of this solution: Dialog Sistemi's consolidated experience in the retail sector. The possibility of having a Report and Analysis Set, widely customizable directly by users and also usable with a Web interface. Technology capable of acquiring, analysing and integrating the various corporate information sources into a single Repository. The ease of use that enables the rapid development of Business Intelligence Applications and the management of Corporate Performance. The availability of ready-to-use applications.
Software Business Intelligence E3 Platform, very specialised application and organisational models have been developed for the control and governance of the commercial area, distribution network and human resources area.
The company have achieved a steady increase in profitability and productivity over the last 10 years with increasingly better sorted stores. The management control function was also strengthened from an organisational point of view.
