Eliminating complexity across a growing enterprise
Komax selected SAP S/4HANA Cloud to harmonize its many existing ERP systems. The software provides a standardized ERP experience and a set of best practices to streamline operations across subsidiaries at Komax while delivering innovation and automation capabilities to the entire enterprise.
As a global company, Komax tackled the software rollout in phases and began with subsidiaries in Japan and Germany. From there, it moved on to the Thonauer Group, which included several locations. However, the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic complicated the project and travel restrictions went into place during the go-live phase and prevented SAP experts from visiting. So, Komax turned to the quick-start service for SAP S/4HANA Cloud to plan a fully remote go-live.
At the same time, the SAP Activate innovation adoption process provided a clear set of solution-specific practices that helped Komax successfully adopt SAP S/4HANA Cloud and additional offerings, including the SAP Analytics Cloud solution. Komax knew that SAP services would provide the expert insight needed for a successful implementation on time and within budget, but it also selected SAP solutions to meet specific process needs.
For Komax, SAP S/4HANA Cloud could support different areas along the value chain and customers’ corresponding requirements. The comprehensive ERP capabilities of the software work with standardized, configurable series machines and customer-specific systems. They also support Komax’s subsidiary TSK Group, which develops and produces test systems and was using SAP R/3 software.
