CHALLENGE

  • Disparate data repository systems meant that important information was kept in individual silos
  • Data reconciliation to a central location was a challenging task
  • Process of generating reports was time consuming and inefficient, requiring hours or even days to get the reporting that they needed
  • Lack of information flow between departments as well as the associated internal business processes

SOLUTIONS

  • SAP Business One powered by SAP HANA’s extensive analytics tools tracks inter-departmental workflows and the data that is generated in each workflow
  • Scalable ERP foundation that supports their entire business operations
  • Powerful business management solution that gives them real-time data insights into the company

BENEFITS

  • Streamlined processes involving vast amounts of data and significantly accelerated steps in internal operations
  • Increased insights into inter-departmental workflows allows them to make decisions faster and better
  • Ability to manage all aspects of their business operations through one single system

The synergy between SAP Business One and SAP HANA is the reason HTRI migrated from Microsoft SQL to SAP HANA. SAP HANA maintains the most compelling offering for SAP Business One users because of the price, the in-memory technology, and the features in SAP Business One that are exclusively available to HANA users. We simplified our IT infrastructure with SAP HANA, revamped our business intelligence to take advantage of its power, and continue to build out new applications that streamline the way to HTRI's future. I encourage any company considering a migration to SAP HANA to realise the system they have today is the one they started working on five years ago, and that the future of SAP Business One is based on SAP HANA's extensive feature set. HTRI is proudly moving forward with SAP Business One on SAP HANA, and has no regrets following the migration.
