The SAP S/4HANA implementation helped our business in centralizing pricing and discounts, stopped revenue leakage, and automated sales pricing. Our team has derived transparency and tracking at order level, and achieved visibility of stocks across all locations.
Siddharth Malani, Managing Director, Shree Malani Group
Shree Malani Foams Pvt. Ltd., established in 2008, is one of the leading producers of technical and industrial foams in India, mainly due to its product quality and range.

About the Project
Business processes posed several challenges for the foam producer, e.g. lack of transparency and tracking capabilities, time-consuming and costly manual processes as well as inefficient, manually handled financial processes.
Achieving Ambitious Goals with a Reliable Partner
To operate more efficiently, Shree Malani has developed concrete objectives: finished product planning from forecast to sale, automated raw material planning according to demand, management of non-standard requirements for mattresses, faster customer delivery and optimized financial monitoring.
In need of a trustful partner, they engaged their longterm partner itelligence India, providing in-depth technological expertise, and customer-driven engagement models. itelligence recommended best-of-breed, customer-centric SAP S/4HANA, cloud products, and application management to meet Shree Malani’s identified goals.
From Stand-Alone to an Enterprise-Wide Application System
SAP S/4HANA allows Shree Malani to plan and control its multiple production units and distribution centers seamlessly. Now, in no time, the customer can maintain and process large data volumes. Moreover, the solution, being implemented under variant configuration, met non-standard product requirements for varying manufacturing styles – from discrete quantities, to rate production, to multi-dimensional products.
