Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat de Catalunya (FGC) has won the Gold in Fast Delivery category at the SAP Quality Awards for its conversion of SAP systems to SAP S/4HANA®, a project brought to reality by Techedge.
Once again, SAP has delivered its Quality Awards for Iberia, awards that recognize the quality of the projects deployed and launched leveraging SAP technology. This year the winning companies were Grupo Pacha, Grupo Luisaves and Ferrocarrils of the Generalitat of Catalonia (FGC), which have won gold in the three categories that are awarded.
The SAP Quality Awards reward the projects that certify higher levels of excellence and quality in the management and joint work (clients and partners) of the implementations of SAP solutions carried out during the year.
FGC, together with Techedge, made the conversion to SAP S/4HANA, adding SAP Fiori functionalities to provide visibility onto financial processes, accounts and public contracts using mobile devices. The transition to S/4HANA system was made in a single step and has not had any impact on the day-to-day work of its users. The project has been evaluated based on the defined objectives, project timeline and speed of implementation.
The president of the railway company, Ricard Font, collected the award at a gala held in Madrid, explaining that FCG's aim is to take on and incorporate the most cutting-edge technological changes to continue being a "quality mobility operator".
The ICT director of FGC, Enric González, states, "we are fortunate, because this award, beyond its' reputation in the technological field, is a reward for a very concrete way of doing things".
