Illumiti has completed the first two phases of the deployment of SAP® Business Suite 4 SAP HANA® (SAP S/4HANA) for Monarch Cement, USA.
"Monarch chose SAP S/4HANA for its capabilities to help drive new efficiencies, strengthen reporting and build profitability," Illumiti said in a statement.
The integration and management consulting company explained that SAP S/4HANA is SAP's next-generation business suite is built on SAP's advanced in-memory platform, SAP HANA, and offers a personalised user experience with SAP Fiori®. "Deployable in the cloud or on-premise, SAP S/4HANA is built to drive instant value across lines of business and industries with the ultimate in sophistication: simplicity."
"We are very pleased to be implementing SAP S/4HANA and excited about the efficiencies it will bring to our operations over the longer term," said Karen Jarred, Monarch Cement's IT director. "One of the main reasons we chose SAP S/4HANA was its ability to empower our management team by providing them with easy access to the information they need, when they need it."
SAP S/4HANA will provide a single business platform that will allow Monarch greater control of its operations, while still answering its high need for a secure, scalable solution, Illumiti added.
The final phase of the implementation project is planned for completion in early April 2016, and will include finance/controlling and material management components.
