Abstract This Master Thesis is made within the Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership “Improving Employability through Internationalisation and Collaboration” (EPIC), with the support of the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union (EU), in collaboration with SSI Schaefer. Based on the objective and information obtained through the Erasmus project, this master thesis investigates the reasons e-grocers are losing while they carry out e-grocery service despite the existing automated solutions accessible to e-grocers. The master thesis describes the phases of activities performed by e-grocers in an As-Is state and models this using Business Process Modelling Notation, Flowcharts, and Unified Modelling Language to show areas which possibly cause loss to e-grocers, flow of information and activities between e-grocery sub processes, and improvement necessary for these sub processes. Relevant e-grocery performance indicators are identified in this thesis and used as derivatives to model an information technology solution in form of displayable information which might be provided by a Business Intelligence tool to support and guide e-grocers in taking decisions which could help them to decide on some particular options in the e-grocery activities. Scientific materials, alongside information from SSI Schaefer’s Director of Business Development for Food Retail; Jakob Bear and e-grocery expert Jan Frick (University of Stavanger, Norway) were used as source of data and information in this master thesis. The master thesis contains 89 pages, 30 images, 3 tables, 59 reference sources, and 4 appendixes.
