BPX and KBJ to Implement SAP S/4HANA in Four Companies of Grupa Azoty
BPX, serving as the lead consortium partner along with KBJ (a consortium member), announces the signing of a pivotal agreement with Grupa Azoty, one of the most significant entities in the Polish chemical industry.
The contract, valued at over PLN 30 million net, is the result of years of preparation and encompasses the implementation of an advanced SAP S/4HANA system using the SAP Model Company for the chemical industry and Best Practices across four companies within the Azoty capital group. The 17-month project aims to create a unified system instance, replacing the current SAP ECC 6.0-based solution.
“We are delighted to join forces with KBJ in the implementation of this significant nationwide project. It marks our first step towards further collaboration, and we trust it will bring substantial benefits, confirming our ability to cooperate effectively and committing us to continuous improvement. This is the beginning of a shared journey filled with new challenges and successes”, says Bogusław Cieślak, CEO of BPX S.A.
BPX S.A., specializing in modern IT solutions, sees this collaboration as more than just a prestigious contract but also as an opportunity to provide Grupa Azoty with comprehensive support in the digital transformation process.
“We are proud of the trust Grupa Azoty has placed in us by selecting our proposal as a key implementation partner. Our experience and specialized knowledge in SAP systems, combined with an innovative approach to projects, will enable Grupa Azoty to leverage the full potential of modern IT solutions”, says Łukasz Kluczyk, Sales Director at BPX S.A.
Consultants from both firms, having previously worked on projects for Grupa Azoty, will bring valuable experience, expertise, and a deep understanding of the company’s organizational culture and business processes to the current collaboration.
“With our rich experience gained from international projects and our Polish roots, we are prepared to transfer this knowledge to the local market. Over the past 17 years, we have executed numerous projects, building a team of certified consultants that guarantee solutions perfectly tailored to the client’s needs. This forms a solid foundation for effective collaboration”, adds Anna Saczuk, Vice President of BPX S.A., Director of Digital Transformation Services.
The selection of the contractor not only considered competitive criteria such as price, key personnel, and references but also aimed at achieving positive outcomes for the company resulting from the project.
Signing the agreement with the BPX S.A. and KBJ S.A. consortium provides access to over 400 experienced SAP consultants and the combined know-how of both companies from projects executed in Poland, Europe, and other continents.
“Migrating from the longstanding SAP ECC system to SAP S/4HANA is not just an opportunity to complete technological integration and business consolidation for the Puławy-based company. It’s also a chance to benefit from the best business practices in standardized business processes offered by the SAP Model Company for the chemical industry. It represents a significant opportunity for system standardization and the elimination of non-standard extensions in the company’s systems, leading to a significant reduction in operational costs associated with SAP system version upgrades”, adds Maciej Gieracha, S/4 Hana Program Manager, Delivery Partner at BPX S.A.
With the implementation of the SAP S/4HANA system, Grupa Azoty will gain an optimized, integrated platform enabling efficient management of business processes. The unified system instance will enhance coordination between companies, contributing to increased efficiency and competitiveness throughout the capital group.
