Success Story

NorgesGruppen implements SAP CAR 4.0 to optimise sales transactions

The main objective of the project was the streamlined processing of POS and all other sales transactions and building a platform for the future. The challenge in this project consisted of reducing and at the same time, rationalising the existing complex infrastructure of NorgesGruppen across their store network.

  • Rationalisation and reduction of the complexity of the IT infrastructure

  • Roll-out over 1,800 branches and the online channel

  • Short project duration, implementation within only 6 month


  • Implementation of SAP CAR 4.0 based on SAP HANA

  • Streamlining of the IT infrastructure


  • Reduction of existing complexity

  • Foundation of transaction-level sales information that can be used for analysis and collaboration purposes

  • Baseline to support other initiatives in the future


The SAP CAR implementation was one of the most successful projects we ran in 2019.
The cooperation with retailsolutions was excellent.
