Teknosa Extends Relationship with Oracle to Help Enhance Store Performance and Profitability


Rapid Implementation Strategy Helps Turkish Retailer Improve Store Compliance with Oracle® Retail Lifecycle Space Planning Applications

Oracle Retail CrossTalk, Chicago, IL – June 23, 2010


News Facts

Teknosa, Turkey’s leading technology retailer is using Oracle® Retail Macro Space Management and Oracle Retail In-Store Space Collaboration to optimise its retail space and help improve revenue, by localising and tailoring assortment, price and promotions within its 256 stores.
Teknosa offers consumers affordable state-of-the-art technology products from hundreds of global brands through its Standart, Planet, Extra, Exxtra and Teknosa Outlet store formats across Turkey, as it expands its international reach.
The Oracle Retail applications will help reconcile perceived floor space at head office with actual use of space within stores to provide insight into space elasticity and support an uplift of revenue with a decrease in operational costs.
With increased management visibility to stores and shelf, Teknosa can maintain better compliance to corporate plans by reallocating floor space for high-margin items, improving assortments by tailoring inventory to local demographics, and creating more streamlined store-stocking practices.
Additional benefits are planned by streamlining and improving communications between head office and stores. This will help Teknosa to gain a consistent channel of communication to promote floor plans or changes to store management, with sufficient lead time to enable promotional adjustments.
The deployment of Oracle Retail lifecycle space planning applications builds on Teknosa’s 10-year history of successfully relying on Oracle’s offerings including the Oracle E-Business Suite, Oracle Data Warehousing, Oracle Enterprise Performance Management and Business Intelligence applications, Oracle Retail merchandising and planning applications and Oracle’s Sun Server and Storage systems.
