Creating real market advantages and opening up new markets by continuously optimizing business processes with individual, flexible solutions.
IT and system development have traditionally been among the core competencies of the 7Days Group. Our merchandise management system for press distribution has been one of the leading ERP systems in the industry for more than 40 years, enabling us to play a significant part in shaping the digitalization of our business processes and interfaces at a very early stage.
Process optimization through IT expertise
Software development is one of the traditional components of the 7Days Group service portfolio. The software range has been continuously expanded and qualified through the targeted expansion of IT competencies. This implies the development of digital applications such as analytical tools, B2C applications and interface and portal solutions – not only for the print-media industry, but also for logistical areas.
Our IT expertise puts us in a position to optimize processes when necessary. As a customer-oriented and owner-managed company, we have the necessary proximity to the market and to our partners to recognize needs at an early stage, and to implement them in sustainable solutions in direct coordination with the development team. In pursuit of this aim we were able to develop a promising platform for the digitalization of press distribution – especially with read-it, our B2C kiosk system. IT is a decisive success factor in competition with other providers in logistics business areas.
Retail trade app
Our Market Partner Portal app for print-media retailing (hereinafter referred to as MPP) was launched in 2012.
In the MPP, as with all market-oriented app developments, our customers interact synchronously with our operational ERP system: transactions entered by customers must lead to immediate binding responses on the fly. This state-of-the-art feature should be a must in our industry.
But the MPP is only one of several apps that we include in our software. Others include, for example, the iPIA for our wholesale field service, various mobile tools for logistics such as an app for tracking our delivery routes, and especially our read-it app, which we have also adapted for the B2B sector.
Online kiosk for the B2C segment
The read-it digital kiosk platform, which transfers the Spotify usage principle to print products, was launched on the market in 2013. It enables anyone to read newspapers and magazines with regular advertising free of charge, or to buy a premium subscription for an ad-free experience.
Aimed in particular at the young and digitally savvy, read-it is to be understood as complementing existing and established print products in the retail trade.
