How to improve organisation’s productivity, expand business and growth efficiently and strengthen transparency.
Modern cloud-based SAP Business ByDesign helped Fidelix to digitalise its core business processes, enable growth and faster decision making. The solution is designed for medium-sized growth companies and suits project-based services companies.
Sofigate and Fidelix managed to build the solution just in 3.5 months, within set scope and budget. The productivity of finance processes has increased by 60–70%. The company’s transparency to business in general has also improved, as business unit managers now have easy access to real-time data and a defined set of KPI’s.
We invested in a modern growth platform for our business. Now we have real-time information at our fingertips – whenever and wherever we need it!
A growing building automation supplier Fidelix wanted to have a new and modern ERP system. By selecting SAP Business ByDesign and partnering up with Sofigate, the company increased productivity of its end-to-end business processes and strengthened transparency to its overall business.
The Challenge: A growth-enabling platform needed!
Fidelix develops and produces intelligent and reliable building automation systems and services. The company has 15 regional offices and around 100 partners in Nordics. Fidelix exports its products to countries such as Norway, India, Great Britain, the Baltics, China, and Russia.
Fidelix aims to double its revenue by 2020 and to expand its business to other Nordic countries, so the company wanted to identify and implement a global, company-wide growth-enabling platform. Fidelix’s aim is also to improve its productivity in order to prepare for the future.
“We wanted to establish processes together with key metrics so that success can be measured and managed,” said Tero Kosunen, the CEO of Fidelix.
The Solution: A cloud-based ERP, SAP Business ByDesign, to digitalise business processes
Sofigate helped Fidelix to digitalise its business processes and to implement a modern cloud-based ERP, SAP Business ByDesign. The solution spanned all core business processes, including also CRM and travel and expense management.
The SAP Business ByDesign solution is designed for medium-sized growth companies and suits project-based services companies like Fidelix particularly well. Its low cost of deployment and best-practice processes were the reasons why Fidelix chose SAP Business ByDesign.
”We were looking for a modern cloud-based ERP system to meet our goals on scalability and fast implementation time. Based on these criteria, we chose SAP Business ByDesign as our new digital core and Sofigate as our supplier. We were convinced that they can deliver a solution that would fit best for our purposes to bring insights for our business, reduce manual work, serve our customers better and have scalable processes for business growth,” said Kosunen.
“We are really happy to have Fidelix as our client. Fidelix chose SAP Business ByDesign to be their core business platform, to enable growth and faster decision making. We managed to build the solution just in 3.5 months, within set scope and budget. I strongly believe that many fast-growing Finnish and other Nordic companies would benefit from having SAP Business ByDesign as their new digital platform,” said Sari Mikkonen, Business Executive at Sofigate.
The Benefits: A 60 % increase in finance process productivity
With the help of SAP Business ByDesign, Fidelix can now digitalise and integrate all its core business functions from sales to project management and financials, and from procurement to production and supply chain management. The productivity of finance processes has increased by 60–70%. The company’s transparency to business in general has also improved, as business unit managers now have easy access to real-time data and a defined set of KPI’s.
“We can now easily build our own reports without the need for consultancy and make decisions faster than before. That will eventually lead to a more profitable company,” Kosunen said.
”The new ERP solution enables faster business growth for Fidelix. It is the cornerstone of their digitalisation. This cooperation also supports Sofigate’s cloud-first business technology strategy where we offer modern cloud-based business solutions and our unique IT business management knowhow for fast growing start-ups and medium-sized companies,” said Mikkonen.
