Avril Supermarché Santé, the leading independent Quebec grocery chain specializing in organic and natural products, has partnered with Beyond Technologies to implement SAP for RETAIL ERP solutions to help support their rapid expansion.

Over the past few years, Avril has been experiencing every retailer's "favorite" challenge: a rise in demand, explosive growth and an expanding consumer base. With all these new elements added to their daily operations, their current solution was proving too small and too limited to meet their needs. With this in mind, Avril set out to accomplish two major goals:

Selecting a top-level retail technology and business consulting firm:

  • that has proven success driving growth with retailers of all sizes
  • that has experience implementing large retailer best practices with smaller retailers
  • that understands the grocery retail sector
  • that shares the same customer and family-oriented values as Avril Supermarché Santé

Selecting a best-in-class solution:

  • that improves their current growing retail operation complexities such as omnichannel strategies, pricing & promotions and consumer loyalty
  • that is a complete end-to-end retail-specific ERP
  • that offers large retailer functionality for an SMB budget
  • that allows them to compete with larger grocery retailers within their niche

Avril reviewed several retail consulting and technology experts before finally choosing Beyond Technologies and SAP for RETAIL. Beyond Technologies offered a higher level of expertise with their Enhanced Retail Template services that combine retail best practices, rapid implementation methodology and access to a team of dedicated retail experts. The solution based on SAP Business All-in-One for Retail powered by HANA, SAP's in-memory database, provided a full suite of retail best practices in a single solution that can manage smaller retail businesses and easily adapt to their evolution and growth.

"Beyond Technologies was just a natural fit for our corporate culture; their deep retail knowledge and their approach focused on implementing software solutions and business processes that support the improvement of our key performance indicators (KPI) make them a partner and trusted advisor for the next generation of our business", says Rolland Tanguay, President, Avril Supermarché Santé.

"We are really excited about partnering with Avril. Using SAP for RETAIL solutions will help make their store operations as well as their supplier and partner relationships smarter, giving them a clear edge over the competition. Being a part of this type of evolution is what drives Beyond Technologies and is a part of our DNA", says Alain Dubois, Partner at Beyond Technologies.
