Decathlon Sports India selects Openbravo Retail ERP


The executive at Decathlon Sports India realized 5 years ago the importance of a retail solution in managing their growing business and the advantage that an open source retail solution could bring.

Openbravo was chosen as the product for the implementation to support their growth at an affordable cost and it was decided to go with the Community Edition in a first phase. Then some issues in the implementation made them look at new options and finally in 2012 they decided to upgrade to the Openbravo Commerce Suite Enterprise Edition.

The adoption of Openbravo Retail ERP Enterprise Edition has allowed Decathlon Sports India to:
  • Execute a more effective stores replenishment process through different business rules, based on current or historical sales, ad-hoc requests… that minimize logistic costs and stock-out situations.
  • Have the opportunity to use mobile devices in warehouse activities that provide higher productivity and accuracy.
  • Provide its stores with a flexible and mobile-enabled POS solution that helps to improve the buying experience in the store.
  • Gain higher merchandise agility thanks to a powerful discounts and promotions engine and the capacity to manage a huge number of products.
  • Easily integrate with existing systems.
  • Adopt a new commerce platform that will allow to solidly progress in current and future strategies, and facilitating the future implementation of a complete OMS (Order Management System).
  • Gain higher control and value of the solution after upgrading from Community Edition, thanks to the adoption of Openbravo’s best practices and access to Openbravo professional support.
