Grupo Azevedos wins Gold in SAP Quality Awards with ROFF

Grupo Azevedos conquista Ouro nos SAP Quality Awards com a ROFF

Grupo Azevedos has been acclaimed by SAP Iberia with the Gold Award in the SAP Quality Awards 2012 in the "Medium Implementation" category for the innovative SAP ERP implementation project delivered by ROFF. In 2012, the company was the only Portuguese organisation to be distinguished in these awards for the Iberian region and is also the first Portuguese company to win the top accolade in this category.

The SAP solution, implemented by ROFF, has enabled the companies in Grupo Azevedos to achieve a common platform for the management of their financial, administrative and operational processes. The integration of SAP information with information originating from other systems in the organisation has enabled management to have fast and flexible access to real-time business, as well as a clear increase in efficiency and productivity.

When considering the operational level, one of the development highlights was the introduction of radio frequency terminals and RFID identification. Through these technologies, natively supported by the SAP solution, the warehouse and production process management function can now benefit from full traceability and speed of use, in addition to the obvious planning and control benefits.

"To be the only Portuguese SAP partner to see one of our clients recognized in this year's Quality Awards for a demanding project that we have implemented with remarkable success, is testament to the dedication of the professionals at both companies and to the partner relationship which is essential to achieve good results.This award makes us even more confident and motivated to continue investing in specialised services and experienced consultants who are truly capable of helping our clients."

Francisco Febrero, CEO of ROFF

According to Paulo Moreira, Grupo Azevedos' Project Manager "Grupo Azevedos are delighted to be awarded the distinction of Gold Winner at the SAP Quality Awards. This project demonstrates the great vitality of the group's companies and highlights the professionalism of its employees. The group was highly focused on the implementation of SAP. The administration invested in this as a strategic factor for the development of the group companies in the coming years."

The goal of the SAP Quality Awards is to publicly recognize the quality and excellence of the joint work undertaken by clients, partners and SAP itself by ensuring successful implementations which lead to rapid and ongoing business benefits.

"The notable distinction achieved by our client is the recognition of excellence in project management and execution of our SAP consulting partner in Portugal. This award demonstrates an implementation whose objectives were achieved without any disruption and within the originally planned timeframe and budget, proving the competence of SAP in its mission to help companies of all sizes to manage their businesses more efficiently."
