The Kenyan construction company Savannah Cement has chosen to run its ERP with SAP HANA, because their previous ERP system was not giving them the real-time operational view they needed. By implementing HANA, the company has gained a foothold in a very competitive industry. Brian Wamwenje, IT manager at Savannah Cement, is enthusiastic about the new system: “The functionality HANA brought on the table allowed us to have a business advantage of our competition”. He also cites numerous advantages, which include a 75 percent reduction of period closure reporting lead time, improved risk management operational visibility, higher system availability and the
reduction of operational meetings from three daily meetings to one kickoff meeting each morning.
