Techedge, together with our customers Epta and ERG, has been awarded in the innovation and cloud innovation categories at the SAP® Quality Awards in Italy this year. The winning projects are for Epta's implementations of Hybris® eCommerce (silver, innovation) and for ERG's implementation of Ariba® (bronze, cloud innovation).
SAP Hybris eCommerce at Epta
Silver SAP Quality Award Winner in Innovation
Epta's company-wide #EptaExperience initiative aims to tackle the digital revolution currently facing the retail sector. For sales and marketing, that means redefining the shopping experience to make it more engaging for the customer. Through a variety of initiatives, Epta aims to transform its storefronts into points of experience.
The SAP Hybris eCommerce portion of #EptaExperience has opened a new sales channel for the company. The solution, designed to improve the online buyer experience by offering a simplified and seamless digital shopping experience for Epta's B2B customers, allows Epta customers to order products and spare parts more easily.
Specific innovations were introduced in order to meet Epta's business needs, including the ability to search products and their related components and to replicate SAP Hybris defined promotions into the SAP ERP, to name a few.
SAP Ariba at ERG
Bronze SAP Quality Award Winner in Cloud Innovation
ERG S.p.A. has increased supplier collaboration and efficiency and streamlined the procurement process, while improving the reliability and quality of supplier master data management, thanks to the redesign of their purchasing and finance processes on SAP Ariba.
The Ariba cloud project is the first agile software development methodology project performed in ERG and is unique for its innovative architecture. The solution leverages Ariba as the master for supplier data, which suppliers maintain themselves, and is then mirrored in their SAP ERP application.
