SAP S/4 HANA FINANCE for Retail, Wholesale, and Fashion Industry

Finance is the core of a business enterprise. Recent studies suggest that financial intelligence is the need of the hour, as it enables enterprises to access new markets, improve performance, and set realistic goals for achieving their vision for the future. Increasing the value of financial information for improved financial planning and decision making is one of today’s biggest requirements for financial leaders.


Based on our interactions with some of the leading CFOs in retail enterprises like yours, we have isolated some of the common pain points of modern-day CFOs:
• Unavailability of enterprise-wide information and insights

• The ambiguity of data and information due to multiple ledgers
• Fragmented compliance processes and the inability to analyze the financial risks
