SAP in retail: How to handle receipt data
Retailers have until September 2020 to upgrade their POS systems in accordance with the KassenSichV. SAP® customers can now benefit from a new solution: A cooperation between Consult-SK GmbH and fiskaly has resulted in an SAP add-on that serves as a central entry point to cash register data management, which TSE brings along right away.
In recent months, there has been repeated talk in the retail trade of “receipt obligation”, but the guidelines behind this hotly debated topic bring with them many other IT hurdles. It is not just a matter of issuing sales slips, but also of the audit-proof storage of receipt data. With the help of a “Technische Sicherheitseinrichtung (TSE)”, the manipulability of these transaction data is to be made more difficult and, in the event of a tax audit, the data standard associated with the TSE is intended to provide more transparency.
Retailers are facing various question marks:
- Where do I get a TSE?
- How do I get a TSE-Export into my SAP System?
- Is it compatible with existing systems?
- How do I manage the POS data and how do I grant Z1, Z2 or Z3 access?
To answer these questions by means of a single, comprehensive solution, Consult-SK GmbH and fiskaly have entered into a partnership to combine their software solutions. “Receipt4S® plus fiskaly offer the fastest and most efficient way to implement the KassenSichV without worries”, says Johannes Ferner, CEO of fiskaly.
