Ensuring key business processes
Sabris performed the initial implementation of the SAP information system. Now Sabris continues to help with its dynamic development and the development of specific functionalities necessary to ensure the business processes of the timber company. Speed of change implementation and user-friendliness are particularly important to maintain high process efficiency.
Automated solution to support specific steps
Sabris has implemented solutions for Wood & Paper that include non-standard operations such as self-ordering, self-invoicing, reverse categorisation of goods based on customer takeover, purchase estimates refined during or after logging, and more. Emphasis is primarily placed on electronic communication with all process participants and maximum processing automation of individual steps, where in some key processes, employees only act as supervisors, while the process itself is virtually automatic.
The solution also includes archiving of documents to an external archiving system using QR codes. Completely unique optimisation accelerators (virtually a push-button solution) allow the customer to maintain a superior level of processing speed and therefore high efficiency. All this is backed by professional technical, application and development support from Sabris.
