With its Metro Cash & Carry stores, which are managed under the brand names Metro and Makro, the Metro Group remains the international market leader in self- service wholesaling. A benchmark analysis performed by SAP Business Consulting showed that, by imple- menting mySAP™ Human Resources throughout its network of stores, the group would experience significant savings and benefits.

METRO CASH & CARRY INTERNATIONAL GMBH

mySAP™ HUMAN RESOURCES IMPLEMENTATION HELPS METRO MANAGE RETAIL ACTIVITIES WORLDWIDE

With revenues of around 50 billion, the Metro Group is the fifth largest retail company worldwide. It divides its business into four areas – one of which involves operating some 400 retail outlets called Metro Cash & Carry (MCC). These stores, which are disbursed throughout the globe, generate more than 45% of the group’s total sales.

To help manage a staff of more than 72,000 people (as of business year 2002) who work for Metro Cash & Carry, the group chose mySAP™ Human Resources (mySAP HR). Upon successful implementation of organization management, administration, and payroll applications in countries such as Poland, Austria, Russia, Slovakia, and the Czech Republic, the Metro Group brought SAP Business Consulting on board to help evaluate the potential costs savings and benefits of a more extensive mySAP HR rollout.

BENCHMARK ANALYSIS BASED ON SAP BEST PRACTICES

Ute Riemann, head of the benchmark project for MCC, describes how the team created its analysis: “We first selected industry- neutral and industry-specific figures by using the key performance indicators (KPIs), and used them as the basis for quantitative evaluations, such as by cost, for example.” However, qualitative aspects were also included in the analysis. “We used SAP® Best Practices to evaluate the performance of current processes and to determine the optimization potential of mySAP HR,” says Riemann. “Once consolidated and processed, the quantitative and qualitative key figures provided a transparent picture of the operative and strategic potential per application area and for the company overall.”

For example, the analysis showed that mySAP HR would significantly reduce the workload of routine tasks in the HR department, allowing employees to perform more strategically important ones. It also concluded that mySAP HR could signifi- cantly reduce the administration workload for MCC human re- sources personnel.

"One of the key findings for us was the fact that the implementa- tion of further modules will enhance the benefit of the system considerably,“ commented Udo Stauber, head of HR Controlling and SAP HR project manager, on the results of the analysis.

NEW APPLICATIONS

In addition, the analysis showed MCC management that imple- menting new applications – such as e-recruiting and e-learning – could dramatically increase savings, while reducing costs. And how long did it take the team from SAP Business Consulting to perform the benchmark analysis for MCC? “A study of this kind can be completed within 12 days,” says Riemann.
