Grupo Fuertes has received the Gold award at the 2015 SAP Quality Awards, which recognize excellence and quality in managing the implementation of SAP software, in the Iberia (Spain and Portugal) Market Unit.
Grupo Fuertes' Unity project received the highest possible distinction in the Business Transformation category, in which large companies and institutions participated, including Telefónica (silver) and the Barcelona City Government (bronze). The holding company's chairman, Tomás Fuertes, received the award during the SAP Quality Awards ceremony, held at the Villamagna Hotel in Madrid.
The implementation of SAP has led to a notable change for Grupo Fuertes' various companies and areas, as it has added value in the management of all administrative, commercial, financial, procurement, production, human resources and customer relations operations.
The SAP Quality Awards have two other categories, Innovation and Fast Delivery, for which the winners were Banco Sabadell and Iberdrola Ingeniería y Construcción, respectively.
The external, independent judging panel comprised members of winning companies from previous editions, and it assessed the various steps taken to validate and ensure the reliability of the new system and its entry into service as well as strict compliance with standards throughout the entire project. According to the judges, Grupo Fuertes has a unique, robust and scalable solutions platform which enables it to confidently address growth plans in the coming years.
As a gold winner in the Iberia Unit, Grupo Fuertes will automatically go on to compete in the regional EMEA (Europe, the Middle East and Africa) phase of the SAP Quality Awards, which will begin in early 2016.
