SAP S4 HANA for Logistics

Logistics and production in SAP systems 

boatThe biggest advantage of ERP systems is that they gather all data related to company operations in one place. Complex areas of the company (such as logistics and production) received a whole package of modules and solutions in SAP. It allows the users not only to collect data but, above all, to use these data for analysis and continuous improvement of performance.  

For the data to be usable, they must be collected in the right way. It is essential that the company’s processes are reflected precisely in the modules. For this reason, we take the time during our projects to identify the needs of the employees and the business goals of the company. Only a properly prepared system can truly support the company’s activities, constantly improving its performance and reducing costs. 

We have experience in adapting systems to even the most elaborate business processes. We do not stop there – we also create additional, original solutions for our clients, going beyond the SAP standard. We carry out projects that other SAP suppliers do not dare to undertake.

Hicron Advantages

Most challenging projects
On many occasions we carried out tasks for our clients that other SAP suppliers had described as unfeasible. We create extensions for the system standard, and we write applications in ABAP and Fiori, and – if necessary – also in other languages, such as Java, Angular, and more. If you need a specific functionality, our team will prepare it for you!
SAP Experts
Our consultants are experienced and certified in all SAP modules. Moreover, most of them specialize in more than one module at a time. This ensures great stability and flexibility for our projects. For example, should you choose to implement an additional solution, a suitable specialist is probably already on the team dedicated to the project.
Iternational rollouts
We have carried out numerous rollout projects around the world. We know the legal and economic requirements for adapting the SAP system to local realities. Our biggest rollout project included 17 countries.

We have been active on the global market for years. We have cooperated with clients from Australia, the USA, Saudi Arabia, Germany, the Netherlands, and other countries. The experience we have gathered allows us to offer you unconventional solutions that we know to have proven successful in other companies.

International SAP rollout

In connection with a new investment – the launch of a production plant in Kaluga, Russia – it was necessary to rollout the SAP system taking into account the local requirements. Volvo CE set itself the goal of unifying business processes across the group. This task was entrusted to the Hicron team.

The use of the business processes that proved successful in Germany in the Russian 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.

Automatic production inventory

The key role of the newly implemented functionality is the ability to fully integrate progress data concerning works on a specific order with the inventory process. As a result, SAP ERP is able to calculate the number of components necessary to execute the order and conduct predictive analyses.

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.
