The Challenge

Van Leeuwen was looking to harmonize its business processes and technology applications in order to increase customer service and efficiency and to enable further digitalisation. Their existing system was heavily customised and was becoming unmanageable and costly to maintain.

“There is always a learning curve when two companies start to work together as they become aligned, but we worked well with SOA People and the teams on both sides enabled us to combine our knowledge and work well together to synchronise the solution.” John Van Schaijk, Corporate IT Manager, Van Leeuwen
