Due to the expansion of the company's operations to new foreign markets, the Group was looking for a solution that would allow for standardization of management and optimization of operational processes. In response to the client's needs, Hicron implemented the SAP ERP system for Maflow Group.

Hicron completed all the contracted works at lightning speed, which was a pleasant surprise. Professional delivery of this essential functionality was extremely important to us.

SAP implementation

Novol is the largest Polish manufacturer of car painting materials. In order to optimize the process of preparing paint and varnish colours for individual customer orders, Novol decided to implement SAP Variant Configurator. As a result, the implementation of the solution by Hicron made the process shorter and increased the overall functionality of the system.

During the three years of cooperation in the development of the SAP system, Hicron consultants more than once proved their competence and understanding of our business, especially in the area of logistics. That is why we decided to entrust Hicron with the task of preparing and implementing the variant configurator. The work on the solution went very smoothly, according to our expectations. Saving time, minimizing the possibility of errors, and increasing the comfort of work are the main benefits that we gained thanks to the implementation.
