Benefits through a positive cost-benefit ratio

A comparison of benefits and costs is shown here:


  • Reduction of total operating costs via optimisation of processes in all key business areas
  • Reduced workload in execution of trade through automated processes (e.g. through automatic account reconciliation)
  • Lower collection costs through centralised risk management
  • Reduced capital commitment via faster storage throughput and optimised inventory use (e.g. through branch integration and multi-channel management)
  • Increased efficiency through better storage and logistics processes
  • Additional revenue through increased sales reach (e.g. 30 per cent increase in the German market through the integration of Amazon)
  • Minimised maintenance costs via central product range management


  • Performance-based payment model: less than 1 per cent of total sales
