What We Do

ALDI is a leading national retail merchant with over 1,400 stores and 24 regional warehouses throughout the United States.  Systems Guild Inc. has provided a plethora of software solutions to ALDI for two decades!  The Business Insider has categorized ALDI's presences in the United States as "The worst storm in retail history"!  Our software systems are a part of that storm.  We take an immense amount of pride in the business technology solutions we provide to ALDI and take great pleasure in seeing ALDI win awards and recognition for their innovation in the retail industry.  Let our team put your business in the winner's seat!

 

Business Needs:

ALDI needed to improve and upgrade the technology they use that maximize cost savings while utilizing a tiered pricing structure and leveraging existing transportation infrastructure.

 

ALDI's Challenge:

ALDI had a sophisticated business process to manage the buying process that employed leveraging their buying power and investment in logistics infrastructure to identify and obtain the best cost. The goal was to analyze existing buying patterns and use that information to optimize cost savings.   By buying at the appropriate tier based upon customer demand helps ALDI keep costs in line and can pass that savings to their customers.   ALDI manages over 1,400 retail stores, dozens of regional warehouses while coordinating supply efforts with over thousands of suppliers. Daily operations and growth result in a Big Data management challenge.

 

Our Solution:

Systems Guild Inc employed an Agile methodology to work with the subject matter expert to identify sophisticated business rules and data sources.  This knowledge was applied to build a system that interfaced with existing data to daily identify and track opportunities to fine tune the purchasing process.  Analyzing gigabytes of data provides valuable information about ordering patterns and customer demand to the buying department.

 

Results:

A proprietary system that provides analysis that, ALDI to make the best purchasing decisions. The end result is a system that replaced a manual process and identifies significant savings to ALDI each year.

 

 

Retail Sales Tax

Business Needs:

ALDI needed a retail sales tax system that could support their expanding market and product line.  Driven by growth and improved technology at the point of sale, the system needed to offer accurate real-time tax calculation for a broadening product offering as well as new jurisdictions.

 

ALDI Challenge:

Growth in new jurisdictions, new retail sales taxes, and a product line that included many new products left ALDI with a need for a retail sales tax solution that could support existing point of sales equipment, while the transition to a new high performing point of sale system was deployed.  Ever changing retail sales tax laws required a system that could accurately meet the existing challenges while being robust enough to handle expansion into new markets and products.

 

Our Solution:

Systems Guild established a system to maintain existing retail sales tax solution so that all the capabilities remained uninterrupted while a new system was implemented with enhanced functionality.  There were several key elements involved in building a new retail sales tax system. One of the first issues was to find a tax data vendor that could handle the increasingly complex state and local regulations for managing taxes on multi-channel transactions. Providing technical expertise in both the operation of existing systems as well as current state technology, Systems Guild was a technical partner to ALDI and was integral in the process of selecting of Vertex, Inc. as the new tax data and software supplier. Systems Guild worked closely with the Vertex Consulting technical team to on ALDI’s behalf to specify, create, qualify and maintain a system to provide data from the Vertex product in the format needed by legacy systems.   Systems Guild advised in the setup and configuration of the Vertex product to allow a seamless transition to the new point of sales system.  With Vertex in place and mindful of regulatory requirements identified by Price Waterhouse, Systems Guild built a comprehensive retail sales tax software system to interface, manage, and update existing legacy point of sales systems while allowing the seamless in place upgrade to the new point of sales system.  The product was delivered in a mature state, including operation, installation, and troubleshooting guides which allow ALDI's staff to install and implement the system with minimal oversight from Systems Guild. The transition from the existing system to the new system occurred seamlessly in place with no changes or interruptions to upstream or downstream systems.

 

Results:

Systems Guild maintained ALDI's current tax system and engineered and implemented a turn-key retail tax solution implementing client specified best of breed third party systems and custom development that allowed ALDI to use their staff to install and execute the product.  The solution was delivered on time and within budget.
