The project was a challenge that opens the doors for a digital transformation of the Romanian business environment.
“The collaboration with Premier Restaurants Romania has given us the opportunity to reaffirm our pioneering on the Romanian market in the implementation of SAP S/4HANA and to run this project at the necessary speed in order to achieve the business objectives of our client. As a result, the implementation deadline was only 8 months and a half, with minimal impact on operational areas.
The truth is that without the 100% involvement of the client, the results cannot be on top, which is why we thank Premier Restaurants Romania for their support, for the constant focus on the common goal, pragmatism and real-time decision-making capacity.
We know that this is only the beginning of our partnership, a long-lasting collaboration in which the innovative technology that NTT DATA Group develops and locates in Romania will provide the support and solutions required by the growing business needs. At present, the bases are solid: an advanced ERP system that is anchored in the future, following to build together the next level: tailor-made solutions in the IoT area that meets the most critical analysis and information needs.
Moreover, this year we want to surprise our customers with new concepts adapted to the current trends that we will develop in the local R&D center and the Innovation Lab in Cluj-Napoca”, stated Maria Metz, Deputy CEO of NTT DATA Romania.
The newly implemented digital system enjoys the full potential of the SAP S/4HANA solution, which translates into improved transparency, real-time data storage, and processing, and much- improved traceability and predictability of transaction flows across the company.
“The most important thing in the success of an implementation is the consultant’s team, to whom you entrust the organization’s future. Our project has combined best practices and implementation methods with excellent technical expertise in the industry we represent. For eight and a half months, a very good relationship has been formed between the NTT DATA Romania team and my colleagues in Finance, Operations, IT, HR and Development.
We have undertaken with NTT DATA Romania the responsibility of implementing this project, during which we have consolidated a long-term relationship based on trust, collaboration and transparency.
Our partner has invested significant resources in knowing our organization and our values, thus providing a common language and excellent communication between teams.
Together with NTT DATA Romania, we have built a powerful information system that allows the management team to make the best decision based on accurate and current information. The new system is an essential element for our organization to maintain our position and optimize our activity in this digital era; supports development plans, provides better control and creates the premises for improving long-term profitability. It is the emblem of our projects and ambitions to strongly anchor us in the future.”, stated Oana Braicu, Financial Director Premier Restaurants Romania.
