"Imperial Logistics International streamlines their move to SAP S/4HANA"
"We went with Winshuttle after a very short decision-making phase and didn’t need to look at any other providers - the software was practically custom made for us." -- Stefan Berger Imperial Logistics
Imperial needed to introduce a uniform SAP system across the entire group of 80 subsidiaries. After the acquisition of Lehnkering GmbH, they were using two different versions of SAP R/3 in accounting and controlling which created complications. They decided to make the switch from SAP R/3 to S/4HANA Finance throughout the company.
This project was also challenging because they needed to migrate existing data. Project managers knew this would be an expensive, drawn-out process and their initial step was sharing internal knowledge and information about unpaid items and assets. Everything down to the field levels had to be clearly defined so they could perform the migration successfully using the right tools. This had previously been an error-prone and rigid process and was one of the main reasons they wanted to gain more independence from external service providers.
