To reduce the workload on IT, Dixy engages the leading IT companies to search for the best technological and managerial decisions. This allows the retailer to maintain market leadership in its segment, improve operational efficiency and offer customers high-quality products at reasonable prices.

During the cooperation since 2010 year, experts of MAYKOR-GMCS have completed 800 tasks for the information system development of Dixy. Major projects are related to the consolidation of tax accounting processes into a single system, automation of factoring, tare recording, cost accounting for import, integration with the retailer's logistics system, as well as the calculation of providers’ bonuses.

"Dixy has ambitious development plans. Every day we solve a lot of problems within the company and we are constantly working to improve the effectiveness and implementing innovative solutions that help to grow our business. Work of the whole team is important, especially the work of the external partners. In the face of MAYKOR-GMCS we have found a competent IT partner who not only understands the logic of the processes in the retail sector, but also is able to solve methodological problems," says Julia Zhuvaga, Chief Financial Officer of GC Dixy.

MAYKOR-GMCS continues cooperation with Dixy and helps the company to better control over marketing campaigns. Another task is related to the integration with an external system of electronic document flow that will simplify the exchange of electronic documents with numerous counterparties.

"Company Dixy is one of our key customers in the retail sector. During the many years of cooperation, we have watched as the company has been transforming and changing its business processes. Our project team was constantly looking for the best decisions and even execute impossible ones. The real challenge was to set stop-lists, as well as automate sales charges. It was made from scratch and in the shortest possible time," said Ksenia Chernikova, Business Director of MAYKOR-GMCS.
