Atlantic Grupa is one of the leading food companies in the region with well-known regional brands that, along with a range of external partners, supports its strong distribution system in the markets in the region. Atlantic Grupa products have a significant presence in Russia, the CIS countries and Western Europe, and with the assorted sports nutrition, Atlantic is the leading European company in this segment.
Atlantic’s distribution companies compete in difficult markets with relatively low margins. Every increase in supply chain efficiency significantly affects the bottom line. Further on, innovations in customer service allow us to remain the market leader and differentiate among other FMCG distributors of similar profile.
Our business case is the digital transformation of our delivery processes. To achieve this, we are trying to address several challenges:
The expected business benefits are:
The solution should provide two main components, according to challenges specified in Challenge description chapter of this document.
General remark: for the proof-of-concept application, all requested ERP integration features should initially be provided through simple export in some database table.
The main idea is to equip each truck and driver (for external partners) with a tablet application, linked to company’s ERP system, allowing real-time visibility of truck position, delivery status (both to Atlantic and customers) and integration of all in-the-field events back into company’s ERP system
Delivery driver gets a bunch of printed dispatch notes/invoices and delivers goods with those papers to customers
Information from the field is available only by calling the driver – we have no idea where is the truck, which deliveries are made, are there any problems, when is the truck expected at some location (customers call to ask when they will get the goods)
All information is handwritten on papers, which have to be physically returned to the warehouse in order to manually process them in the ERP system
Eurocash aspires to be the leading Food and FMCG distributor in Poland. Through the combination of our business know-how with the entrepreneurship of our clients and employees, we want to maximize our share in daily need products for the consumers in the countries where we operate.
The main part is to prepare intuitive, graphical and easy to consume dashboards for Managers, and C-level employees. These dashboards should offer drill down functionality, based on the organizational structure of the company, so once a user drills down he / she can see data from different perspective. Any data presented should have this logic applied.
E.g. Sales (total or per BU or SKU) from country level to regional levels, then to local level, and so on.
The second task, but also important part, would be including in these dashboards information from the day-to-day corporate life of an Eurocash employee. We include couple of possible examples, but you are not limited to these (we again count on your creativity):
These are just some examples that can be represented on the application. We would like to see your creativity and of course, how SAP Cloud Platform functionalities / prediction engines can be used. The dashboards should be available only to the C-level people, while second part of the dashboard should be available for everyone.
The solution will be used by all Eurocash employees and we hope this will increase their satisfaction and their effectiveness, regardless of their role. However, the solution will be role-specific, meaning that C-Level executives have access to more information, mainly company KPIs.
Here are the benefits that are important for the C-Level, but respectively for all Eurocash employees:
First and foremost, we want the application to be as intuitive as possible. Thus, it is very important that the application is easy to use, it has meaningful colors and has a beautiful user interface. The Dashboards should offer notifications and here we count on the creativity of participants to suggest what would be the best way to alert important information via notifications. Since these are C-level dashboards, the users should understand the data quickly and they should be able to share this data easily or communicate with appropriate people associated with some KPI. We would also like to see the creative approach here.
Dashboards should be available via a web portal or through mobile devices (iOS, Android). As Eurocash is operating in different countries, the application should be easily adjusted to any language.

This translates into 3 challenge tasks. The participants have to address at least one task below:
Sportina Group strives to provide the best shopping experiences for its customers. We realize that customers’ behavior is continuously changing in today’s connected world and that the only way to justify a customer making the trip to our store rather than shopping online is to give her/him an experience she / he can’t get anywhere else. Our goal is to better understand who our customers are, what are their fashion needs and wants and thus personalize the way we interact with them. We want the customers to feel privileged when in-store, offering them unique shopping experiences. Thus, we believe that enhancing the in-store shopping experience will drive customers’ loyalty, increase footfall and will inevitably lead to an increased average basket size.
We expect participants to the challenge to make use of the latest innovations in technology to solve one of the 3 tasks below:
We appreciate solutions that:

Selgros is a large Cash & Carry company in Europe, owned by Transgourmet Holding, a wholly owned subsidiary of Coop (Switzerland). Selgros Cash & Carry Romania is one of the most important players in Romanian retail owning 21 stores. They aim to serve quality and freshness to their customers. Having thousands of partners, hundreds of thousands of customers and strong communities they take part in, Selgros is scrutinizing the future to be always useful and trustworthy. In 2011, Selgros joined Transgourmet Holding AG, the second largest B2B and food service network in Europe, with operations in seven European countries (Switzerland, France, Germany, Austria, Poland, Romania and Russia). The takeover of the network by Transgourmet confirms Selgros' growing attention to the gastro market and highlights the defining qualities of the company: the power of success, the energy of excellence, and the passion as the basis of any action.
Selgros focuses on the following directions:
Selgros is looking to improve the marketing campaigns effectives to better target their customers and raise the retention rate by addressing more specifically the needs of their clients. Selgros wants to combine all the information they have about their customers from their clients’ database (which is categorizing all the customers based on an initial questionnaire done when registering within their database) with the buying historical data (stored in the ERP), analyze the data and display the results in a dashboard that can be used to generate marketing recommendations.
The project has two main components:
Selgros aims to provide a diverse portfolio to their customers by addressing their needs in a personalized way and bringing them specialised product assortments.
We understand that every customer has a different buying behaviour and we want to gather all this information in a single point of access that enables us provide customized shopping offerings to our loyal customers. We aim to better understand who our customers are and what are their needs and thus provide them the products they are interested in a more accessible way.
Therefore, we believe that by knowing our customers we can improve our loyalty programs through targeted campaigns and raise the retention rates.
At the moment, we have information about our customers gathered in two sources: the clients’ database and the shopping cart history. We expect the participants to our challenge to combine the data and create an algorithm that can create relevant results to solve the following tasks:
The solution should be presented as a dashboard with intuitive user interface that displays the data and action recommendations based on the algorithm’s results.
Data set will be provided in a later phase and will include:
In case of specific information being requested by any of the participants via email or during the on-site event this will be communicated towards all the participants.
