How Mechan manages digital transformation in a secure cloud environment
To enable Mechan’s digital transformation in a simple and economic way and to address their commercial ambitions for a Webshop, SAP expert SOA People was selected to implement the SAP Cloud Platform (SCP). With SCP they could manage new and existing apps in a secure cloud computing environment, giving them automated connection to their SAP backend with full integration of their data and business processes.
The Mechan Groep is one of the largest players in the agricultural equipment market across Benelux, distributing machinery for brands such as Fendt, Massey Ferguson, Valtra and Fella.
Also operating in the construction and industrial markets, Mechan is focused on delivering effective customer support services across its range of brands. It works with customers to improve productivity and working practices through advocating innovative uses of modern machinery and equipment, for example, Mechan is a leading proponent of Precision Farming.
Mechan Groep wanted to improve their online sales operations with a new state-of-the-art Webshop. The new Webshop would enable and improve the sales of spare parts for its machinery. To achieve this they needed to digitally shift the business, aligning their SAP strategy through cloud-based integration with third party applications, which would help drive increased customer service levels and efficiencies.
“SOA People has worked very hard to ensure our Webshop went live on time. It seemed an almost impossible task but they achieved it, and I want to thank them very sincerely for their achievement. SOA People can be proud of themselves for what they have accomplished in that short time.”
“SOA People has a dedicated, experienced team who stayed focused and worked nonstop until the project met its tight deadline”.
