Savannah Cement has signed an agreement with Sperkejet East Africa Ltd (SEAl) and SAP Africa for the installation of an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution known as SAP All-in-One solution on SAP HANA platform to manage data in real time.

“Due to the increase in our business volumes, we felt that there was a clear need to review our approach to technology, and we’re pleased to have selected SEAl and SAP to provide us a solution that addresses our need to offer a differentiated and an excellent customer experience to both our internal and external customers." Ronald Ndegwa, MD of the Kenya-based cement producer said.

Ndegwa added Savannah Cement has invested over US$600,000 in SAP All-in-One solution on SAP HANA platform because it significantly enhances functionality, service and efficiency far beyond the legacy SAP solutions that are currently in the industry.

“Savannah Cement communicated a clear and revolutionary need to change its approach to technology, and we’re pleased they selected SAP All-in-One powered on an SAP HANA platform to help provide an improved customer experience and staff efficiency,” said Mr. Andrew Waititu- MD SAP Africa.

Serge Marc Victor Blockmans, CEO of SEAl – the implementing partner – added the ongoing SAP project implementation scope encompasses the finance and supply chain processes, as well as an interface to the weighbridge.

“SEAl adopts SAP’s ASAP and Rapid Deployment implementation methodologies. This allows for the solution to be delivered in a mere four months which allows Savannah Cement to reap the benefits of the investment very soon.  SEAl is proud to implement the first SAP HANA technology based solution in the region.”
