Digitalisation in retail is in full swing and, naturally, for us this has also created new and exciting opportunities for change. Specifically, this means evaluating all our existing processes and systems and redeveloping them where appropriate. This is a mammoth task facing our International IT within the framework of the ///AHEAD project. In this project, we are laying the foundation for our digital future, which will make us more flexible and efficient in our responses to changes in the market. Obviously, a project of this size involves many exciting initiatives where you, as a part of something truly great, can come into play.
ALDI SOUTH is carrying out one of the largest IT projects in the company’s history
We live in a volatile world in which technologies develop and change rapidly, where competition increases constantly and where the needs of our customers change continuously. We are responding to these developments. ///AHEAD is the global transformation project that will adapt our IT systems and business processes to suit the digital world. With representatives from all ALDI SOUTH countries and a separate project team in Germany, we are all working together to create new global IT solutions and business processes for the ALDI SOUTH Group. These innovations will help us improve our customers’ shopping experience and make routine tasks more efficient. The project will ensure that ALDI SOUTH stays on top of changes in the food retail market and will, at the same time, simplify workflows and processes. We will achieve this through the following:
- Deployment of market-leading standard technologies
- More automation and integration
- More intensive collaboration between business and IT departments
- Faster time-to-market for our IT solutions and processes
We’re setting out on the journey to our digital future!
///AHEAD will affect all of our business areas at ALDI and all have one thing in common: a motivating and challenging working environment with a reliable, long-standing employer. Which area would you like to be part of?
