case history


Dimar group is an important point of reference in the Italian food distribution sector. The company activity, in continuous growth, is based on 5 distribution methods, with stores operating all over the territory. Dimar Group turned to Bis-Retail to implement an IT system to analyze their distribution network’s profitability and HR management.

In a very complex corporate structure, the sustained growth pace experienced by Dimar Group over the past few years, as well as innovation in distribution formats, have led the company to implement a management control system that, by involving all corporate components, would represent the “core” application to support corporate decision-making processes.


After a detailed analysis of the main management tools on the market, the Bis-Retail Explorer solution was chosen for the following reasons: • Ability to adapt to any relational database platform • Extremely flexible infrastructure system • OLAP technology to easily integrate different information sources • Ability to generate advanced and flexible reports, using the Data Warehouse technology • Reliability thanks to an important customer portfolio in Management Control applications


“The IT solution provided by Bis Retail and the expertise of their analysts in the retail sector, has allowed the implementation of a highly integrated IT system that provides a management view of the business with detailed information on all distribution units and central services, as well as providing access to multiple values and indicators by geographical area, channel and core company employment analysis, editable by the user. All these features have turned out to be vital elements of our decision-taking process”.

The partnership with Bis Retail has only just begun: the implemented solutions demonstrate competence, skills and flexibility, which are fundamental features to address our constantly changing needs. We are now evaluating new projects, giving more importance to those corporate areas that can obtain greater benefits from analysis tools: we will soon activate a new project in the logistics area. Alessadro Revello, Dimar Group General Manager
