The Challenges

The merging of the European market, increasing globalisation and the enormous entrepreneurial expertise of the Emil Frey Group caused FADIS GmbH to put all of their existing IT systems and processes under the microscope.

THOMAS + PARTNER.


Development of a standardised and transparent IT system for vehicle import (IMS – Import Management System) and the motor trade. All basic requirements were fulfilled here:

1. Complete Mapping Of The Business Process Chain In The Automobile Trade For The Core Competencies

  • Motor Trade
  • Parts Retail (incl. warehousing)
  • Customer Services Management

2. Optimal support for the Emil Frey Group agility in the import field through

  • Multilingualism – In Order To Be Capable Of Working Across Borders And Internationally
  • Multi-Client Capability – In Order To Be Able To Flexibly Integrate New Brands Into The System At Any Time
  • Modularity – In Order To Ensure A Quick System Introduction In Line With Needs
