HKScan as one of the winners of SAP Quality Awards in EMEA Region


By News Team

HKScan has been awarded by SAP with the Silver SAP Quality Award in EMEA* region in the Cloud Innovation Category.

The SAP Quality Award is for project excellence, for building a solution that addresses best identified business needs, for customer commitment to the business case, requirement gathering process, implementation, change management and overall achievement of the set KPIs after the go-live.

“At HKScan, we wanted to renew our CRM processes, consolidate customer information and reduce manual reporting. We chose SAP Hybris Cloud for Customer to cover sales processes including new customer acquisition, customer and consumer services with the goal to increase sales, customer satisfaction and information transparency. Moving to a cloud based solution was a strategic decision to lower the TCO. Our implementation partner Bilot recommended the SAP Cloud Implementation Methodology and the Agile development model”, says Katri Metsämäki, Director Customer & Renewal Solutions, HKScan.

“In this project supported by Bilot, HKScan showed how high quality implementation projects should be done. They defined requirements clearly, engaged key stakeholders early on to actively participate, and finally define KPIs that allowed determining if the project was successful. The judges were especially impressed with the way the project team worked with the business to get alignment when the cloud solution deviated from the business requirements,” says Taira Tepponen, Country Manager, SAP Finland.

Bilot CEO Mika Tanner is proud of HKScan and their success: “We are excited to know that HKScan has received this prestigious award and for a project that Bilot implemented. We are especially delighted that the award was received in the Cloud Innovation Category. Bilot has innovation in its genes and also has former merits in this discipline. In the previous edition of the SAP Quality Award, Containerships, won a Bronze award with Bilot’s support at the Nordic level for the first ever Cloud for Customer solution in the Nordics. We are always excited to contribute to our customers’ successes and help them grow their business.”
