"By combining the extensive knowledge and keen insight of SAP and Yixintang, we are able to deliver an intelligent management solution powered by SAP HANA platform tailored to Yixintang's business characteristics. This is of great significance for the retail drug industry. In our future cooperation with Yixintang, we will extend the spirit of co-innovation, and further explore the potential of informatization development in the retail drug industry."

The new implementation will help Yixintang's business expansion by reducing its information silos, and will enable the company to realize effective financial accounting and cross-store drug allocation.
