KeellsSuper is a leading supermarket chain with 50-plus outlets in Sri Lanka, and it offers the only online supermarket in the country.
In 2005, JKH implemented SAP ERP across it’s 70 subsidiaries. With the recent decision to move KeellsSuper from the group ERP deployment to its own line of business (LOB) specific instance of SAP ERP, arose the need for an integrated SAP/POS system.
JKH evaluated 3 key integration options -
- Implement an in-house Custom RPC like integration solution to integrate with POS systems
- Use SAP’S Own middleware
- Use a 3rd party ESB based middleware solution.
