SOMFY chooses VISEO to support it in boosting its Group operations with the implementation of SAP S/4HANA
Boulogne-Billancourt, January 12, 2021 – VISEO, as a SAP Integrator, has been selected by SOMFY, world leader in the automation of openings in houses and buildings. This collaboration relates to the implementation of the ERP SAP S/4HANA in order to make its group organization, in France and in all the international subsidiaries, more efficient. SOMFY's objective is to acquire a new, more reliable and efficient global system, capable of covering a wide management scope across all of the Group's information systems, notably by guaranteeing the uniqueness of the information it contains. VISEO will implement in this project its expertise in the design and implementation of SAP solutions (S/4 HANA, ARIBA, CONCUR, IBP, SAP Cloud Platform), with the constitution of a Core Model that will be deployed worldwide.
For 50 years, SOMFY has supported and facilitated the daily life of millions of users around the world. Day after day, the company imagines for and with its customers the housing of tomorrow, more comfortable, safer and more responsible.
Present in 58 countries through 117 subsidiaries, SOMFY has placed digitalisation at the heart of its strategy for several years. To accelerate this digital transformation, the company has decided to rely on VISEO to further boost its operations through the implementation of SAP solutions.
The roadmap of the SOMFY Group's transformation project has been drawn up over 5 years and will cover all of the company's business lines: finance, management control, sales & distribution, purchasing, supply chain, production... The first stage of the project consists of the design and construction of a Core model for 4 pilot sites in Italy, Tunisia, France and Germany, which will then be rolled out to the rest of the Group's entities.
"The main challenges of the project are the harmonization of our business processes and rules as well as their simplification and digitalization. Our aim is to further enhance the customer experience, increase cross-functionality within the Group and strengthen our operational excellence as a competitive advantage. We chose SAP's cloud solutions because they best met our business needs. The choice of VISEO was guided by the strong expertise of the proposed team, their ability to challenge us on our needs and also by a DNA close to ours." Vincent PINSSEAU, Program Director at SOMFY
"SOMFY's digitisation programme fully corresponds to VISEO's DNA which is to contribute to the success of our clients' transformation by bringing our expertise in the efficiency of their organisation and their information system. Our goal is to be recognized by our customers and our market by being identified with a strong quality brand that innovates in its market, attracts the best talent, and develops a business ethic with its customers. This project is above all an extraordinary human and international adventure, based on trust, excellence and the enthusiasm of our joint teams." Estelle BERANGER, Sales Director VISEO South East
