ROFF recebe prémio pelo melhor projeto de implementação SAP da África Francófona

ROFF, a Gfi Group company and leading company in the implementation of SAP solutions in Portugal, has been honoured by SAP with the award for the best implementation project in French-speaking Africa. This award was handed out at the Annual Meeting of the SAP Partners of the region French-speaking Africa, in Abidjan.

It concerns the implementation of the UP platform (SIFCA Unified Platform) in the Ivorian agricultural industry group, SIFCA. The main goal of this programme was to standardise and optimise the group’s processes, more specifically the control of backoffice operations, so as to improve its performance and response capacity in an increasingly competitive business environment.

The implemented solutions make full use of all SAP ERP modules, SAP Business Intelligence (BI), SAP Business Warehouse (BW) and SAP SuccessFactors for human capital management.
The award-winning project comprised successive deliveries and go-live at multiple companies throughout 36 months, involving 50 consultants, in a total effort of around 24,000 man-days.

“The relationship of trust and commitment between ROFF and SIFCA Group has been strengthened over the last few years through a series of successfully completed projects. Therefore, we feel very honoured by this award, as it acknowledges the skills and experience of our team of consultants in Ivory Coast, and particularly in this client”.

Francisco Febrero, ROFF’s CEO

Gonçalo Seixas, head of ROFF's operations in Abidjan, added that “the ability of ROFF’s staff to integrate the customer's structure, get acquainted with their organisation, frameworks and business issues, presenting and discussing solutions, played a crucial role in the success of this wide-ranging and ambitious project, enabling today the effective management and monitoring of the company, from the agricultural fields and the industrial production operations to the decision-making in the Board room.”

This SAP award, handed out at the Annual Partner Meeting of French-Speaking Africa, aims to acknowledge the projects that stand out in terms of successful planning and execution, thus providing maximum value from the SAP solutions to the clients’ businesses.
