Segezha Packaging chooses VISEO for the implementation of SAP Business One

Paris, June 3 2020 - Segezha announces its collaboration with VISEO on the implementation of its ERP SAP Business One.

Segezha Packaging (part of Segezha Group) is a leading international paper packaging company with a vertically integrated structure and 7 production plants located in Europe. Its extremely rich history has its origins in the Netherlands, where the first factory started operations more than 130 years ago.


The company’s extensive product portfolio ranges from simple open-mouth and pasted valve sacks to pinch bottom and tube film sacks, as well as refuse sacks.


Industrial paper sacks meet the highest performance standards while at the same time represent a sustainable and natural-fiber based packaging solution for a wide range of industries


The strong growth of the business and its geographical presence has led to the need to implement homogeneous processes between the different locations of Segezha Packaging and therefore to implement a common ERP.

A strategic challenge for the company

As an industrial company with a presence as wide as that of Segezha Packaging, managing the activity without a homogenization of processes and tools becomes very complicated and requires a significant workload. The company already has heterogeneous ERP solutions, each one supporting a part of the activity.

VISEO & SAP Business One: the winning ticket

Segazha Packaging chose SAP Business One, a solution that is well known within the organizationsince it is already used in one of the subsidiaries. The company turned to VISEO as a partner for the implementation of the solution. Thanks to its expertise in the construction of Core Model and their international deployment, VISEO will accompany Segezha Packaging in the construction and deployment of SAP Business One.


According to Vladimir Berkovich, IT Director, Segezha Packaging: “Within the SAP Business One implementation we seek to achieve the unification of business processes across Segezha Packaging production plants, which will also have a positive impact on operational and administrative efficiency of the company”.


"This project is a key one in VISEO’s SAP Business One strategy" as explained by Sofiane FAESSEL, SAP Business One Practice Director at VISEO: “We have a very strong history in implementing SAP Business One for Large Enterprises like Segezha Packaging that are running a two tier ERP approach and we are very happy to add this company as a reference and a proof that this kind of approach is the preferred one today for most companies that needs to increase their agility in terms of ERP implementation”.
