Implementation of SAP S/4HANA

ERP solutions for vehicle manufacturers with the portfolio of SAP systems for Automotive are not included in the SAP S/4HANA offer. Hicron has met the needs of its Customers and prepared applications based on Fiori which conduct operations specific for the Automotive industry within VMS, WTY, DBM or Dealer Portal, enriched with additional elements to support processes typical for the industry. We have implemented these solutions and prepared a roadmap for the full conversion of SAP to S/4HANA.

See our offer of Automotive solutions based on Fiori if you wish to prepare for conversion.

International Rollouts

Vehicle manufacturers most often create international networks of production plants, the task of which is to manufacture vehicles in accordance with the standards of the whole organization. One way to maintain the production quality and timeliness is to unify the ERP system of vehicle manufacturers in all the locations of the corporation. We have several years of experience in preparing templates of the SAP ERP system for vehicle manufacturers, implementing it in the head office and moving it to local companies in various countries

See our SAP rollout offer.

Applications in agile technologies

Apart from SAP ERP solutions, we also offer vehicle manufacturers the preparation of web applications and platforms in other technologies within Hicron Software House. Such a solution is usually used by businesses that need to use flexible, modern solutions to prepare applications that are difficult to design in SAP environment due to costs and function.

See our Hicron Software House offer.

Vehicle configurators

We have experience in preparing applications that serve the role of vehicle configurator, shared with end customers and importers in a web form. Within ERP for vehicle manufacturers, the application enables individual configuration of a vehicle with components taken into account and online quotation based on information in the SAP system, as well as 3D visualization of the configured vehicle. It is also possible to order a car online

Detailed reporting to the head office

We have experience in implementing solutions to support companies in preparing detailed, low-level reports and effectiveness analyses that reach the profitability of production at the level of a single vehicle, required of single production plants by the vehicle manufacturer’s head office. Such detailed solutions are unavailable in the standard ERP systems for vehicle manufacturers. For one of our Clients, we have prepared such a solution based on SAP PaPM, thus shortening the time to prepare a report from 7 days to one day.

See our SAP PaPM offer.

Case study

Pronar is one of the largest producers of agricultural machinery and equipment. Thanks to the SAP Dealer Portal and Product Catalog solutions implemented in the company, improvements in the distribution of spare parts and inventory control have become possible.

Cooperation with Hicron went very smoothly, and all stages of implementation took place on time. The skills and experience of Hicron consultants cannot be overestimated – the involvement of our employees, who spent a lot of time working on the concept and data preparation, was also very important.

Solaris Bus & Coach is one of the European leaders in the production of buses and trolleybuses. The company, known for its far-sighted approach to business, decided to implement a warranty claim handling system in cooperation with Hicron.

Hicron specialists are excellent at adapting SAP to our requirements, utilizing standard solutions to a high extent. At the same time, if necessary, the team efficiently designs and implements their own, proprietary improvements.

Volvo Construction Equipment is part of the Volvo Group, one of the largest manufacturers of trucks, buses and construction machinery in the world. When the company decided to launch its new plant in Eastern Europe, it needed to adapt the SAP system to local regulations. As a result of the cooperation, Hicron not only rolled out the system to the new Volvo CE plant but also unified business processes throughout the Group.

The use of the business processes that proved successful in Germany in the new factory is of great benefit to Volvo. Thanks to our cooperation with Hicron, in addition to the basic scope of implementation, we identified opportunities to improve the already existing processes. Some of the ideas were implemented as part of the project, e.g. in the area of stock-taking – work that could take a week now takes one day. By saving time, we also save money.
