In the early days, Canifa went through a period of digital transformation, and they decided to implement SAP ERP software to help them cope with the ever-growing complexity of their operations.
The SAP implementation started in 2015. The system replaced much of their Excel and paper operations and digitized the POS, inventory, manufacturing and accounting functions of the business.
Despite the long project duration the software never fully met the needs of Canifa.
