Decathlon Sports India

Decathlon is one of the world’s largest sporting goods retailers. Headquartered in Lille, France, it has stores in more than 22 countries. Currently it has more than 40 retail stores all across India. Promantia has worked with Decathlon, its partners including Openbravo in implementing systems for Decathlon.

Some of the projects executed by Promantia for Decathlon includes

1. Supply/Store split – a project to split the single Openbravo instance that supported the stores and the back-office ( logistics, warehouse, purchase ) into two different systems – one for the stores and another for the back-office ( supply ) , that were integrated through restful web services . This greatly enhanced their ability to scale the store network and enabled them to migrate the supply network to the global standard product ( SAP )

2. Customized Openbravo WebPOS – enhanced the Openbravo Webpos to incorporate Decahtlon specific requirements, including interfacing with external crm application for retrieving / saving customer data and capturing per transaction feedback from the customer

3.Bottom up Budgeting and Tracking:  Implemented a web based planning and tracking tool for stores – that helps them define their revenue targets, direct cost and track it through the year. The information is captured for each line manager at a store level and data can be rolled up to get an organizational view. The solution was buit using Java based RAD tool Play Framework and designed to work on mobile devices and computers.

4. Finance Integration : Ledger entries related to direct revenue transactions generated on Openbravo are converted to a format that can be consumed by the centralized global accounting system.
