Making the right strategic decisions is possible only by analyzing the right data. And providing the right data depends on minimizing manual work. To do this, we implemented SAP® ERP and thanks to the expertise of itelligence, we were able to complete
the project in as little as nine months.

Digital Transformation in the Capital of Textiles with SAP® ERP
Established in 1987 in Bursa, a capital of textiles, Savcan Textile Group has been active in the textiles and ready-to-wear clothing industry in Turkey and many areas of Europe for over 30 years. Its 900 employees provide round-the-clock service at regional offices in Paris, London, Barcelona, Warsaw, Copenhagen, and Amsterdam. With a monthly

Savcan Textile participates in Turquality, a support program organized by the Turkish Ministry of Economy to promote the global development of Turkish brands. As part of this program, Savcan Textile is digitizing its business with the aim of optimizing processes, ensuring inventory consistency, boosting customer satisfaction, and increasing employee and machinery efficiency.
Quickly Adapting to Changing Conditions Is Crucial
Digitization is an inevitable part of both our daily and business lives. It is almost impossible to imagine an industry or a business process that is not affected by digitization, and textiles is rapidly catching up with other sectors. This is just one of the reasons why Savcan Textile Group decided to begin its digital transformation journey with SAP ERP and itelligence.
Noting that much has changed in our lives over the last 25 years, information systems manager Ayfer Doğru says, “Unlike the past, the key to success and leadership in today’s business world, where we face intense competition, is to quickly adapt to the changing conditions. Therefore, we have set out to integrate all our platforms of weaving, print, and ready-to-wear clothing and to extend digital transformation to all our processes. We are very happy to be implementing this strategy in partnership with itelligence, an expert in its field.” Savcan Textile chose itelligence based on its proven track record of projects in the textiles industry and the industry expertise of itelligence consultants. Over the course of the nine-month project, Savcan Textile integrated all weaving, dyeing, printing,
and production processes, ensuring easy end-to-end management. Furthermore, by defining clear roles and responsibilities, it was able to ensure comprehensive performance management. Savcan Textile now has full traceability of its products, including fabrics and ready-to-wear clothing. As new systems and processes come into effect, the projects for risk-decreasing applications will continue.
