MDM+ BRO Success Case

“Imagine finding a tool that fits as a puzzle piece to the already existing scope in SAP, being SAP and solving those recurring complaints of users: “I can not create new fields; I do not have workflow for approval; It’s difficult to use; I have to go through screens to fill out just 1 field; I have no visibility of where my request is.”
So it was our story with BRO and HKS. Nowadays our process is more robust and easy to maintain and with sustainable gains.
Very satisfactory delivery, combining cost, friendliness and collaboration.
Thank you HKS team.”
