SAP, one of the world’s largest software companies, and “Abitek”, a distributor specialized in the promotion of innovative technologies and IT-solutions, announced a successful implementation of SAP Business One solution powered by HANA.
After just two months of running the new system, the accuracy of forecasting at “Abitek” increased by about 20%, and the efficiency of the decision-making process – by 15%. Users now save about 35% of their time for tracking down data. It was the first implementation of SAP Business One in Georgia that was performed by “RSM Georgia solutions”, the Certified Partner of SAP.
“Abitek” operates in four countries – Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Georgia. Fast and efficient interaction between company’s departments and divisions is an important part of its daily processes. The existing ERP system could not support the growth of “Abitek’s” business due to its limited functionality. The company needed a unified universal solution that is able to provide comprehensive warehouse management, reporting and advanced analytics.
SAP Business One was the most attractive choice for “Abitek” due to its integrated modules and ability to perform fast predictive analytics powered by SAP HANA. With the new solution, customer relationship projects, procurement, and selling processes became more efficient and accurate.
“Now, we have a powerful tool that allows us to manage items per country and always have online information regarding stock value. Before SAP, our employees had to make several calls to get the quantity of the item in stock. Nowadays this process along with lots of others is automated that resulted in greater speed and fewer errors”, – said Giorgi Gogoladze, Director of Georgian office, “Abitek”.
“Best practices of Western companies are available now in the CIS region as industrial solutions from our certified partners. SAP Business One contains innovative technologies for SME including analytics powered by SAP HANA and cloud computing. A single universal platform for managing an international business, with 43 localizations and 27 languages, helps companies effectively operate in a global market”, – said Ilya Yuriev, Deputy General Director, SAP CIS
“Abitek” does not plan to stop improving its business processes. For the next step, the company considers the implementation of the financial module of SAP Business One. The number of users working with SAP Business One is to increase from 8 up to 30. Apart from that, a distributed structure will be created, with accounting in every office of “Abitek”. Finally, the launch of B2B portal is planned to ease the interaction between the company’s divisions.
