Supermarket Group Aldi Selects Omikron Payments Solution

German supermarket group Aldi Süd, which now operates in three continents with over 9,000 stores in 18 countries, has selected the MultiCash Transfer WebEdition software offered by German vendor Omikron Systemhaus for its national and international payments.

Omikron said that the efficient handling of both payments plays a central role for the supermarket chain. The migration to the single euro payments area (SEPA) presented an opportunity for the German organisation to introduce optimisation, especially in terms of automating the workflows and meeting internal security requirements.

One objective was to operate the new system as central payment platform, allowing multiple departments in differing locations to access their data as and when needed.

In a pilot study, Aldi analysed several solutions before selecting Omikron’s MultiCash Transfer WebEdition. Contributing factors in this decision were its positive experiences with Omikron products and a clear recommendation from the company’s main bank.

Implementing a package of security measures running consistently across the various systems – the enterprise risk management (ERP) system, middleware systems and MultiCash Transfer – ensured that the process complied with internal IT security requirements.

Alongside the software solution, Aldi and Omikron developed a service package specially tailored to the company’s needs. This guarantees direct support from Omikron as solution provider and access to the in-depth expertise of the specialist service team.

“We expect our system partners to react quickly to new internal and external requirements,” commented Aldi’s IT project manager who oversaw its implementation. “Omikron has been delivering e-banking solutions for more than 25 years and has a strong reputation on the market as a result.

“Above all, we attach great importance to the future-proof nature of the solution, allowing us to develop and build functionality as we need it, and the guarantee of long-term support.”
