Uniboard Canada Takes Action and Upgrades to SAP S/4HANA 1709!

Talan is proud to announce the success of a major conversion S/4HANA 1709 project at Uniboard Canada, a leader in decorative composite wood products (TFL). Innovation is at the heart of Uniboard’s evolution, in terms of products, equipment and manufacturing processes. The company has once again shown its very high capacity to embrace the process by successfully carrying out this project.

Accomplished with Talan’s expertise, this conversion, without any impact on Uniboard’s operations, was a significant challenge considering its scope. Indeed, the system to convert had genuine complexity, particularly with regards to the manufacturing and product configuration. Moreover, each part was connected to other SAP software solutions, including, among others, Hybris Cloud for Sales and Services, Opentext Vendor Invoice Management, and Concur Expenses Solutions.

Since last April 23, users are using the latest version of the SAP “smart ERP”, or 1709, with all the innovations it entails. Featuring the latest technologies, the company can henceforth look serenely into the future.  We have carried out the most important SAP project since its initial deployment, and thanks to team work (Talan, SAP, R2i, Uniboard) and professionalism, driven by consistent quality, we have contributed to this tremendous achievement.

It has been a winding road, but the calm atmosphere under which the go live took place is undeniably impressive. It required lots of motivation, as well as perseverance to reach that proficiency level. This experience was extremely rewarding and valuable for the whole team. 
Barbara Poletti, Financial Performance Manager, SAP Business Solutions, Talan

The boldness and the willingness to innovate, combined with Talan’s expertise and vision, has thus allowed us to achieve this success! 

Congratulations to the team!
