Case Study

PSA Peugeot Citroën is a French Automotive concern, owner of the Peugeot and Citroën brands. Due to the fact that the company has a large number of retail outlets, it needed a standardized IT system that would keep the workflow in all locations. As a result, Hicron implemented its proprietary DMS solution in 50 PSA branches in Germany.

The IT system supporting the work of retail outlets is the foundation of our business. The ability to optimize and adapt it to the needs of all entities in the PSA Group is of strategic importance and we consider it a step into the future. This project is a huge challenge: not only for us in terms of organization, but also for our partners – including Hicron – in terms of adapting the system to the needs and business models of PSA. Cooperation with Hicron consultants, taking into account their competences in the field of programming and processes specific to the automotive sector, gave us many reasons to be satisfied.

Peter Windhöfel
IT Director at PSA Group Germany

Abdullah Abdulghani & Bros. is one of the world's largest independent distributors of Toyota and Lexus vehicles. To optimize sales management, the company decided to implement the Dealer Management System and SAP DBM solutions. As a result of cooperation with Hicron, AAB gained the ability to use all system functionalities in real-time through one integrated platform. It was the first project of this type in the world, for which Hicron won two awards in the SAP Quality Award competition.

The SAP Quality Award competition is held every year. Its goal is to select and appreciate innovation leaders who use digital transformation to improve the quality of relationships with employees, customers, and suppliers, and thus succeed in today’s profoundly information-driven market.

Abdul Latif Jameel Motors is one of the world’s leading Toyota independent distributors. While changing the software used for submitting and handling warranty claims, the company decided to launch a portal based on SAP in Fiori technology with the support of Hicron.

The challenge of the project was working in a semi-agile model. As we approached the project, we decided to leave the concept phase open. This allowed us to establish the tasks one by one, without confronting assumptions. The palpable ‘team spirit’ guaranteed flexibility and satisfaction for us and the client.
