Case study

SAP implementation

Cooperation with Maflow from the Boryszew Group began with SAP system implementation. Since then Hicron has been providing Maflow with ongoing support for users working with the system as part of SAP system maintenance and application service as well as carrying out development works in the SAP system. One of these works is the implementation of production inventory process automation.

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.
