A veritable dinosaur among IT systems
The SAP R/3 system used to date had been in place for more than 20 years. Not only had a large number of process variations been developed during that time, but the SFS Group has also become significantly larger, more international and more complex over those many years. On top of that, the software provider will only continue to offer support for the R/3 system for a few more years. All these factors prompted us to make the switch to the new version SAP S/4 HANA. This change will enable the SFS Group to
- implement the most recent system line for all business processes,
- replace the two SAP instances previously in use with a single instance,
- reduce the complexity that had arisen over the past 20 years and standardize processes around the globe and
- increase efficiency and remain competitive.
