Case Study

German chemical giant BASF is made up of fifty-seven units, some of which are unique, and can solve day-to-day unthought-of problems. BASF is an SAP partner, and initially planned to have all of its divisions and business on one specific business management platform. However, as it became apparent that ‘one size does not fit all’ in this regard, the SAP partner began looking at other solutions for some departments.

One of those alternatives was SAP Business One. BASF wanted to have a new solution up and running within seven months, without undue expense, and chose be one solutions to be their global implementation partner. With our team’s help, BASF were indeed able to deliver on both of those goals – and even though as things stand right now they do not have any integration with the central BASF computer system in place, such integration was planned for during implementation, and should be coming in the not-too-distant future.

The wider vision for the future of BASF involves no immediate plans to expand in the US, but the company is looking at using two-tiered solutions in the future as they offer easier scalability. BASF’s operations in Tanzania are now live, and they are part of a plan to encourage more companies onto two-tiered approaches.
