In its continuous efforts to upgrade and modernise its ways of working, ASMAK, the leading provider of fresh and frozen seafood across MENA, has chosen the next generation business suite S/4HANA and Cloud Human Capital Management (HCM) SuccessFactors by software giant SAP as it moves towards digital transformation. An early step in business process transformation, the new tools will bring greater productivity and functionality to ASMAK. The technologies will be adopted by multiple ASMAK divisions including sales, finance, operations, supply chain, and HR. S/4HANA and Cloud HCM SuccessFactors offer real-time analytics, a clearer view of operational costs, and improved supply and demand planning by providing visibility across all sales processes.

The software integrates intelligent services like machine learning and modern analytics with core finance processes to support teams with automation and predictive insights. By adopting these advanced capabilities, ASMAK stands to bring greater simplicity to its operations, including the areas of customer adoption, data modelling, user experience, decision making, business processes, and models. ASMAK will also integrate transformative tools such as Internet of Things (IoT), and mobile-first applications to help the enterprise thrive in a digital economy.
