Konsum Leipzig, from a traditional company to a modern local supplier with tradition

DRS Superdata works with Konsum Leipzig as a competent partner in the planning and implementation of the new IT strategy.

“Konsum” is as well known in Leipzig as the “Gewandhaus” or the “Thomanerchor”. The strength of the company lies in its regional roots. Board members Michael Faupel and Dirk Thärichen work daily to modernise the company, which is over 130 years old. Their aims: to be a good neighbour and provider of service to the customer, both now and in the future. With a 3-year roadmap, they are updating their entire IT system and putting all business processes to the test. The first step tackled the digitisation of the branches and the delivery service.
