Faydasıçok Holding launches digital transformation project with itelligence.
Inspired by Industry 4.0, “Has4steel” digital transformation project has begun!
Celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, Faydasıçok Holding, a key player in the Turkish steel industry, launched its digital transformation journey in cooperation with itelligence, one of the largest international business partners in the ecosystem of world’s leading software company SAP. Within the framework of the project called “Has4Steel”, inspired by Industry 4.0, SAP S/4HANA, SAP SuccessFactors and SAP Hybris Sales Cloud solutions are being implemented at Hasparlak and Hascometal together with Hasçelik, the flagship of the Group that has been serving the Turkish industry since 1968.
In the digital transformation project, manufacturing operations of high quality steel (hot) and bright steel (cold) as well as distribution operations of high quality steel and pipes are located under three individual companies. All business components, from machine communication to advanced planning, sales, and prospective customers, are transferred to the digital environment. A platform to gather the master data at a single center is established and all business processes are simplified and improved.
Emphasizing the importance of embracing the change and adapting to the digital age, Adnan Naci Faydasıçok, Chairman of Faydasıçok Holding, said “Digital transformation is an indispensable reality of our age. We laid the foundations of our Group 50 years ago. Today, we continue to develop and grow rapidly. While establishing Has Steel Americas company for sale and marketing in the US, we are also planning to open new warehouses in the Americas and in Europe. Therefore, we need to cut our costs and control all processes from a simpler, lean and single point. To achieve this aim, we started the journey with itelligence, one of the largest SAP partners in Turkey. We drew a roadmap and prepared a 5-year digital transformation and investment plan. In 4 months only, we completed the entire preparation process and started to transform our enterprise software infrastructure to ensure adaption to state-of-the-art technologies.”
itelligence CEO Abdülbahri Danış, PhD, said, “We, as itelligence, accompany many institutions from different industries in their digital transformation journeys and witness the concrete benefits they achieve. Now we offer our expertise in SAP applications that reshape the business world to the disposal of Faydasıçok Holding. We are glad to offer benefits to such a prominent company that operates in our country since 1968 and delivers products to 65 countries today.”
