THE SOLUTION WALKTHROUGH
Since VIP Industries was familiar with SAP solutions, an updated version of the same solution was chosen. In order to move to SAP S/4HANA, they upgraded to the latest SAP ERP release. Nihilent contributed with their extensive experience in technical and techno-functional upgrades/conversions for clients of all sizes, complexity, and budgets.
The adoption of SAP S/4 HANA re-established a standard information system and accelerated business processes. A simple database, improved system monitoring, and quality controls were some additional functionalities of the SAP S/4HANA suite enabled. The conversion was combined with initiatives such as shifting to standard functionality rather than custom development, resizing, and shifting to better hardware, resulting in a reduction of TCO.
