Makevale Group to implement SAP Business One
Makevale Group, a global manufacturer of quality polymers for the dental, medical and industrial sector, has selected SAP Business One from Sapphire to supports its company expansion.
Makevale Director, Dr Sam Ahir, said now was the right time to switch systems as the company’s operations continue to develop overseas.
“The nature of our business is changing, with new operational set-ups in India and the US, and although Sage, our previous solution, worked very well for a long time, there were limitations to the software, particularly when it came to international operations. So it seemed like the right time to switch to a global system and unify our processes,” said Dr Ahir.
Other shortlisted solutions Makevale found were not really well known abroad but in contrast, Dr Ahir found SAP Business was a highly recognised brand and provided the complete package they were looking for, with the system predicted to pay for itself within just three years.
He said once they had decided to implement the SAP solution, Sapphire was chosen as the most suitable partner due to their professional reputation and competitive proposal.
“Sapphire is recognised as being a top SAP Business One partner, with a very professional and knowledgeable team who were willing to work with us to understand the way Makevale works. Plus Sapphire’s staff always respond very quickly to queries and provide excellent two-way communication.
“They have offices abroad too, so it made sense to have someone with that kind of influence,” said Dr Ahir.
Ian Caswell, Managing Director at Sapphire Systems, said it was encouraging to receive such high praise before the implementation process has even begun.
“We look forward to building on this relationship with Makevale to ensure Sapphire and SAP Business One continue to meet expectations. It is fantastic to see that the Sapphire name so often springs to mind when prominent business leaders seek to streamline their company’s management processes.
“Our own international expansion does put us in a strong position to be able to assist companies with global responsibilities, as we understand first hand the importance of unity across different sites,” Ian concluded.
