Saponia to introduce a new generation SAP S/4 HANA system

Saponia continued its process of digital business transformation by choosing to implement the latest generation of SAP solutions – SAP S/4 HANA system. Innovative technology that combines ERP with a BI system allows real-time access to information as well as efficient execution and control of business processes regardless of location. Along with mStart, Saponia’s partners in this significant project are Hrvatski Telekom and Combis, and we will jointly implement a complex IT environment system at the HT data center, a number of integration services required for successful environment installation and SAP S/4 HANA business system implementation. “SAP S/4 HANA gives us a competitive advantage: each decision maker always has the information they need, when they need it and can therefore act quickly. A significant role in this is system availability that is secured by our partners with whom we are carrying out the biggest modernization of Saponia’s business to this date”, highlighted Diana Mrčela, President of the Board of Saponia. Implementation of a full scope ERP system covers all business functions and therefore it is planned to leverage the full potential of intelligent data use in Saponia in order to make faster, better, more informed decisions. “As a long-term SAP partner, and also as the first partner on the Croatian market with a certified SAP S/4 HANA Best Practice solution, last year mStart completed the first project of S/4HANA conversion in Croatia, which confirmed that we are one of the leaders in the implementation of demanding and complex IT projects. In cooperation with Hrvatski Telekom, we will deliver a first-rate business solution that will meet all the expectations of Saponia”, said Mate Krpan, CEO of mStart plus. “Due to an integrated approach and with complete ICT solutions we provide, Combis and Hrvatski Telekom are able to adequately respond to the most demanding needs of our customers and contribute to their digital transformation. Saponia is aware of the necessity for digitalization and I am proud to support them in partnership with mStart to achieve significant improvements in business process management by introducing the most modern technologies “, said Marijana Bačić, Vice President for Corporate Sales and ICT at Hrvatski Telekom. With the decision to migrate to the collaborative Microsoft office 365 platform and to introduce the SAP system, Saponia is making a significant step towards digital transformation because, as a company with a rich tradition and a focus on development and innovation, it is aware of the need for digitalization to improve business operations.
